sorry for posting this yet again, but i really liked this pic.
And here's a website that seems to traffic in a lot of this stuff... http://www.watchstyle.com/
IMO the Hughes Low straps are at least as nicely made as the OEM PP straps in terms of finishing - but his limitation is the quality of skins he can source.
Actually, I did get a bit twitched when I took the pic.
+1 for ABP. They can work around whatever you give them - and while not inexpensive - I've been very pleased with the 4-5 straps I've had delivered. The straps pictured (not counting the RO strap which is from APbands.com) are using the original tang buckles and pins, and for the Journe ABP was able to integrate the curved pin attachment between the lugs.
Youve inspired me with the moonphase watch to try the same thing on my JLC.
silver contrast stitching to bring it all together?
What color does ABP call the leather & thread (if you remember)?
All the pictured straps are from ABP's specially-tanned alligator offerings. From L to R in the pic, I believe the leathers are acz2, acz3 and for the L1 MP acz4. The acz4 has shades of black and grey, and together with the grey contrast stitch complements the rhodium dial and MP quite nicely.
You may want to reach out to Sonia at ABP, and together with the pic she may be able to pull up details of the order. [email protected]
