Fooling around with straps

Sep 16, 2020,10:59 AM

I have had this idea in my mind for some time. I don’t have the correct pins so they are not mounted. It think it changes the watch quite a bit.

Both nice but I like the gray a lot. [nt]

Yes me too 😊

Somehow the brushed titanium and the suede seem to go well together.

Both look beautiful on your Elegante .

Especially with the winter around the corner.

Interesting idea

and I bet that compared to the rather thick rubber strap these will make the watch feel quite different as well.

Yes it does. I’m thinking of working with a good costum strap maker to get the details perfect.

Only problem is requires me travel. I’ve done some nice ones with Jean Rousseau in Paris. For now I may fiddle around with this one and then d a better one at a later stage. I’m quite keen on the idea,

I think it's a great idea

and I think I'd like to give it a shot as well. I had a strap done by Vladimir Petrov recently, and, while he does take some time, I'm really quite satisfied. Going to him for the Vagabondage as well. And you're right, it is a complex strap at the lug end... 

Thank you, Tony 😃

It does seem to get the most votes. I’m seriously considering getting a costum strap now.

This one has straight pins and is 18/18 mm

The lugs are an unusual shape so it might be good with a slight padding at this end.

The gray brings out the beauty of the titanium

grey for me

does it have the same strap size at the vagabondage? if so, you can probably use the same spring bars no?

Thank you, A 🙏

Same size. But they need to have the pull tabs. The is no room for a tool Bremen the lugs and the strap. It means I need to have a hole in the strap for the pull tabs.

That looks a little jarring at first, we are not conditioned to seeing this.

But looking again I do like what it does to the watch. The colours yes, but also the texture is an interesting contrast (as so different from what we are used to seeing).

I feel silly for saying this, but it never occurred to me to envision a leather strap on an Elegante.

I don’t know why that’s the case, since I like having various straps for all of my watches and often envision them with different options. But the ‘mock ups’ you have here show a really great look for the watch—I hope you get the pins you need soon and st... 

I’m afraid I caught the elgante bug
