Custom Alligator strap for Blancpain:
Hi strap loves. Once again, I find myself struggling to keep up with all the great strap/watch photos I’m getting on my blog. This beautiful Blancpain flyback Chronograph was brought in by a great local customer requesting a new custom Alligator strap to spice up his summer. Chosen was one of my favorite recent arrivals from premium Alligator supplier – France Croco. This hide is live most of what we get from them is a one of a kind Alligator hide with just stunning color variation finish with a really vintage feel. My customer, being a very stylish and adventuresome chap, chose to have this strap stitched with sage colored French linen thread. The lining is our Dark Olive Kangaroo leather, which is both amazingly soft but strong and moisture tolerant as well.
Also featured is Padding at the lugs and our Thick Curved Lug System (TCLS) upgrades which provides an integrated fit between the lugs. I for one think the combo is a stunner for summer and thereby our ‘Watch of the Week’!
