    Strap Pics and review - Sharkskin with curved ends from strap-works.co.uk

    Just wanted to share some pics and words about my recent purchase from Kerr at Strap Works. I fancied a dressier look for my Seiko Presage and Kerr makes a lovely curved end strap with your choice of leather.

    Here is the watch in question:



    Choices wise... I was presented with a set of pictures via email. An amazing choice of exotic leathers. This is just one of those pictures:



    My budget restricted my choices, but I decided to go for black sharkskin. I also picked a polished steel deployment clasp which matches the watch head perfectly. All in all.. I'm delighted and would happily recommend Kerr for custom work.

    Some pictures of the finished article:

    Looks great and has certainly added a dressier look to the watch. Can I ask how much it cost?

    65 for the strap and I added +12 to that for the clasp. He uses the hardware from a Hirsch curved end strap - built up with his own leathers. So, you get the adjustable end inserts to allow a perfect fit.

    The quality is excellent.

    That's a very nice strap Johnny, and I prefer the looks over the bracelet.... should wear in nicely
