Grey Alligator Strap for Rolex Explorer II:
Grey Alligator Strap for Rolex Explorer II – I recently had the privilege to build a custom watch strap for our local customer’s Rolex Polar Explorer II (Ref 216570). For his strap, our customer chose our Normandy Grey Alligator with padding at the lugs and our exclusive ‘Thick Curved Lug System for an integrated fit between the lugs. This strap was designed with some bold features including contrasting Orange Edge Paint, Orange accent stitching at the lugs and our SuperExotica upgrade, here with Emergency Orange SuperMatte Teju Lizard lining and superfine hand saddle stitching with White French-milled linen thread.
Taken the hole watch an strap together really offers a wonderfully cohesive design and is both extremely eye-catching and compliments the overall design of the watch. This will definitely be our latest ‘Watch of the Week’.
One of the things that our customer was unhappy with about the original bracelet is that this Large 42mm watch was that the bracelet was paired with a relatively narrow 16mm clasp. This issue was resolved by building this strap to fit our larger 20mm width ‘D9’ logo, inner-fold deployant clasp, which offer the added benefit of a very clean, streamlined finish on the wrist. This clasp also offers excellent comfort on the wrist, since very little metal touches the wrist while wearing the strap as well a the security of push button activation.
