Hi strap lovers. I am very happy to share some wonderful photos sent by my good customer Marcela’s Nomos Orion-33 on here newly arrived Deep Blue Teju Lizard. This strap features superfine double row hand saddle stitching in light blue and red to match the colors of her M-series BMW. As many of you know from following this blog, we make a lot of strap for large chunky sports watches, but I’d like to emphasize here that we are happy to also make straps of a more elegant scale for more elegant watches as well. Watches don’t come too much more elegant that the watches from Nomos. With their smaller diameter, minimal Bauhaus inspired design and thin profile (7.25mm including curved sapphire crystal), these watches are the definition of mid-century elegance. Very impressed with the overall Nomos design and execution, I’m really looking forward to visiting the Nomos booth at Munichtime watch fair later this month to get some hands-on with their collection. Marcela’s strap while very thin has been built using a vegetable tanned Kangaroo leather mid-layer for strength – Kangaroo leather is known to have 10 times the tensile strength of cowhide, so this strap while thin and supple is very strong. Lined in soft and beautiful red Eel skin, to complete the sporty look.
Thank’s to Marcela for sharing these wonderful photos, her’s is our ‘Watch of the Week’.
