Got a request for a watch strap, IWC mark series, the watch comes with a blue seconds hand, so match it up with our reserves Blue Shell Cordovan from Japan Shiniki Tannery
I don’t normally take up jobs for watch straps, and I have to say this will be the last I will do. As I believe they are a lot of more skilled artisan available that can do a better job than I am.
Lined them flat without filling, and lambskin veg tan for the backing. The watch (if i remembered is a mark 15) is military inspired, therefore fillings is not necessary to obtain the more military feel.
Under some tungsten lighting, I use a roller foot seiko sewing machine, and therefore with the tracking mark, might not be everyone’s liking but it add character to it.
