Antiqued Blue Alligator Strap for Rolex Deep Sea D-Blue:
Hi strap lovers. Antiqued Blue Alligator Strap for Rolex Deep Sea D-Blue- When my good custom Olivier contacted me to build a custom Alligator strap for his Rolex Deep Sea James Cameron D-Blue, he had a very specific idea in mind to have a deep blue Alligator strap with black accents in order echo the Blue fading to black dial of his lovely D-Blue Deep Sea. After a couple of sample iterations, I finally struck on a color combination that he was looking for. It’s essentially a custom deep Royal blue Alligator with black hand antique highlights (or more correctly low-lights). He combined this with lime stitching, lining, and edge paint to achieve the color that you see here. Also, the design specification for his strap was to include our ‘Fully Integrated Fit (FIF). The Rolex Deep-Sea watches look particularly great with our integrated strap fitment, as the gap between the standard straight end strap and the watch case is quite large. Additionally given the bulk and weight of the Deep-Sea, adding the notching a the lugs to bring the ultimate with of the strap to the outside line of the lugs at 26.5mm, then tapering back to (in this case) a 24mm deployant clasp really better secures the watch to the wrist and offers a much more balanced wrist feel. Also, you’ve got to admit that it just looks badass! Olivier’s is without question, our ‘Watch of the Week’
