Well, I now have far too many bracelets and straps for this diver,
but seeing as it's the watch I wear the most, it gives me some variety.
This is my latest strap...just finnished it tonight...tried to get a rubber
diver look to it. This watch is most comfortable on a strap as it is very heavy,
and a thicker leather strap keeps it in place, and actually makes it feel lighter
probably 'cause you don't get any wobble.

a "Dagwood" strap? One hole just as Dagwood only has one button.

The edges and everything look very professional

Great work there. Just love the custom one hole strap. All you really need is one.
Did you punch your name with some sort of letter die?
Great way to make a custom strap with personalized unique look.

wet the leather where you want to emboss it and give it whack and presto, it's there forever.
Leather is a great material to work with...you can mold it, cut it, shape it, burnish it (edges) sew it, glue it, etc. etc. When wet it can be molded to take odd shapes. It's almost endless the way's you can work with it.
