A couple of new ones

A couple of new ones

Postby iwasbanned » April 5th 2017, 6:59pm

Direct from Paris and Camille Fournet. Custom made for my GO (black) and PSM (gold). Square matte alligator extra long to fit a larger wrist. I got to pick every aspect of this strap, including the red backing. It's flat and 4mm at it's thickest. Tone on tone hand stitched and the skin wraps around the edges. They are lovely and this weekend I'll go through the ritual of putting them on my watches. It was about 5 weeks turnaround with international shipping.

I am told the alligators donated their skins after their natural deaths from old age. They were free range alligators that were fed free range hormone free chicken.

Those straps give me a boner.

Wow, those are beautiful. Really nice of those gators to fill out the donor cards. Not a big surprise I suppose, what with the Turkish baths and weekly hot stone massages.

Top shelf strapsmith. The PSM should be a stunner.

Not a strap person; but, can appreciate the craftsmanship. They look amazing.

All I can tell you is that you're missing out. I used to be like you, but some watches were just meant to be on straps.

Those are two of the most lush straps I've ever seen.

Those alligator straps look great. Nice pickup. Prefer straps over bracelets on my watches.

Those are some quality looking made straps.

Ooooh, brown AND black alligator bands? My absolute favourite material and colours for in that order.

If I thought I could end up with two such lush bands, I would tear the 'gator's throat out with my bare teeth, and skin it with my fingernails.
My boner could probably snap John's Johnson in half right about now.

Although I don't want to try.


Not that there is anything wrong with that sort of thing.
