Hi Strap lovers, These stunning photos of The Iconic Rolex Submariner Ref. 114060 (No Date) were kindly provided by my good customer Uwe. Rarely do I see a watch/strap combination that is so perfectly paired as this one. And, while I am blessed by receiving photos from my customer of these watches mounted with their newly arrived Dangerous9straps, rarely are the photos captured with such professionalism in all its details. I will discuss more on that below because these photos can be used as textbook examples of how to photograph watches (which is trickier than it may seem).
First, let me give you the details of this strap. This Strap was made from our Black Rowstone Stingray which has been given a sanded matte finish. Our custom sanded Matte finish offers a more subdued, less flashy finish, which I find more suitable for many sports model or what many call ‘tool watches’ where the high-shine finish polished stingray, as it comes from the tannery, would be a bit too flashy and too elegant. This strap also features Padding at the lugs and our exclusive ‘Thick Curved Lug System’ (TCLS), which is designed to provide an integrated fit between the lugs. The strap is untapered to a 20mm Aftermarket (unbranded) Omega style folding clasp, which I really like as this design folds the long end strap to the inside of the wrist precluding the necessity of keeper loops. This gives the strap a very streamlined finish on the wrist. Lastly, The lining leather chosen for this strap is our ‘Clone’ Pattern Black Kangaroo Gloving leather with is not only extremely durable (having been engineered by the tannery for use in motorcycle gloves), but buttery soft as well, which provides amazing comfort on the wrist.
Thank you Uwe for these wonderful photos, your Rolex Submariner on Black Row Stone Stingray strap is without question, my ‘Watch of the Week’.
