Hi strap lovers, Here are some photos of the iconic IWC Big Pilot le Petit Prince (limited Edition) on a Hand Antique finish Alligator strap. This strap was bespoke for a customer’s Big Pilot Chronograph, but before I shipped it out was able to mount if on a customer very rare le Peitit Prince and snap a few photo. I think this make for an incredible combo. Our hand Antiqued Alligator strap are made from our undyed Veneto Collection Alligator and hand been given a hand Antiqued finish. To do this I build the strap from undyed Alligator which I then hand stain and dye in a multi-stage process in order to achieve the Antique finish – the process is very similar to that used by Santoni for their IWC straps.
This strap also features Padding at the lugs and our exclusive ‘Thick Curved Lug System’ (TCLS) upgrades , which provides an integrated fit between the lugs. This gives the strap a uniquely customized fit that I think looks incredible on the IWC Big Pilot watches.
