Brown/orange watch strap

Recommended Posts

Exquisite.  I appreciate that you didn't let the crease cross at the tip of the strap, a minor detail but shows how much you have focused on all the little things to make the final product outstanding.  Any chance you would show a photo of the backsides?

Thank you. Yes, sure it's easier to cross the tip, because I can choose if I want to "toe or heel" with the creaser around the tip. But I find those small details important.

Very impressive work.  the color combo work.  Nice even stitching and very nice smooth edging.  You'll sell lots!

Danne, that is honestly one of the coolest watch straps I've ever seen and frankly, the best quality I've seen bar none.  

As far as a target audience, I could see Harley Davidson fans going crazy over it.

It has been said here that you set the bar high and that's accurate.  Gives us all something to shoot for.  

I know you did another thread on that strap, but I don't think you gave specifics on how you laminated the orange and black.  Could you show us your approach to that please?  I know I'd like to do something like that in the future.

Thank you for your kind words.

Yes, and if the exterior was black, then it would suit KTM :)

It was a challenge to glue it so it doesn't become a gap, because I felt like I had to use solvent based glue for this construction. So I only got one chance. (To answer how I made sure it was no gap, I pushed the exterior (Brown part) against the interior (orange) between two rulers, and put a piece of tape on the top layer. Because this leather have some finish I was able to use regular clear tape. If you look carefully on the first photo in my "build album" you can see how the leather is a little dull in the middle, but a little polish with Saphir Renovateur solved that.

I don't really have equipment for that, or want to spent the time for making video clips. Sorry.

Don't blame you.   I run a department that takes care of video creation and editing and it is ALOT of work. 

And thanks for sharing.
