A new strap for my "Skyflake".

 By: jlux : June 29th, 2020-11:07
I definitely had an issue with the original dark blue strap : with almost 200 mm lenght it was way too long (as opposed to the typical 180 mm standard).
As a result I had a nasty looking overlapping of the strap on my wrist.

When ordering a new strap I also went for a different and more contrasting color : a kind of taupe (grey/beige) coloring.
Here a couple of pictures with this custom made Camille Fournet strap.

With this the watch gets a less formal and more modern,urban look.

How do you like it?


Perfect. I love the look. [nt]

I'd go so far as to say you've made a perfect choice. Well done! I envy you your ability. I let my local jeweller choose mine. (He's good at fitting them, too.) [nt]

Looks perfect! The blue contrast with the brownish leather!

May I ask what type of strap this is?  I need to get a black or grey leather strap for my Snowflake but was nit sure if I should try Seiko?  Do not have any experience with strap manufacturers as I have always gotten them from the same manufacturer as the watch!

This is a calf leather strap from Camille Fournet.

These are real good quality straps (I believe that they also do the OEM straps for JLC).
They have a huge variety of leathers and colors,much more than what you would find from GS.
The straps are custom made and thus you can specify exactly the dimensions needed to fit the GS folding clasp.

Perfect for a cashmere or camel hair coat [nt]
