Hi strap lovers, Kristian was kind enough to send me his watch to have this incredible strap built around it, which I think this Custom bund strap looks really amazing on his U-Boat Chimera 46 B & B CHRONO. This watch, at 46mm in diameter, is pretty massive (as is Kristian’s wrist) and so he was actually looking for a strap to enhance the size of the watch’s overall presence on the wrist and to retain and highlight the bronze of this limited edition Chimera Chronograph. What better way to enhance this watch’s impact that to create a bund underlayment and to add to its overall design aesthetic that to build this strap from our vegetable-tanned leather and give it a special, hand-applied Antique Mahogany. Adding to that, Padding at the lugs and toping the padding with Antique Bronze finished rivets completes the design. The strap itself is cut to an overall width of 26mm and is then notched to fit within the 20mm lugs, which just added to the massive appeal of the presentation. Hand saddle stitched with our Butterscotch waxed Irish linen ties the whole design together and is even more fitting at Kristian is Irish. Overall, I think the design and execution of this custom watch strap project was a home run!
