Thread: If Carlsberg made straps (now with Vintage Toshi on pg 1 &3)

    If Carlsberg made straps (now with Vintage Toshi on pg 1 &3)

    They'd be the best straps in the world....but as it is, Toshi has that crown :wink:

    Rich kindly brought along a few new leathers to show me over lunch a few weeks back. I was blown away by the green buffalo. It was the best leather and nicest strap i've seen. Soft, supple, textured, and the colour makes a change from the norm! Yesterday i picked up mine









    My favourite strap by far :D :D

    Cheers Rich. :)

    And then there's his vintage ammo to photograph when i can bring myself to swap this off :lol:

    EDIT: Which is here: :)

    Re: If Carlsberg made straps

    I must say I like that very much.
    Different indeed, but it makes a fine combo IMHO.

    Daddel.

    Re: If Carlsberg made straps

    Re: If Carlsberg made straps

    Very nice, just had a look at Toshi's site and see that as well as this leather he also has some shell cordovan which I hadn't seen there before. This is very tempting, just got to think if it would suit any of my watches.

    A few Carlsbergs clearly don't do any harm :)

    Very nice indeed, Jay :salute:

    The problem is that being incapable of changing a strap without gouging myself or my watches, a new Toshi strap means I have to buy a new PAM

    Rich has an awful lot to answer for :twisted:

    Iconic watch and movement for sure, just not sure if I can trust myself with a polished bezel

    I was pondering the 243 and I still love the 305, but then there's the 24, the 283 and more... :blackeye:

    Holy Guacamole!!! :lol:

    The combo of that black on the avocado looks absolutely brilliant.

    Great stuff Rich.

    Re: If Carlsberg made straps

    where's the avocado keep coming from? It's green :lol: :) but sometimes, black, sometimes, dark green, sometimes bright green, depends on the light :)

    In any case watch this space, i have another 'avocado Toshi' on it's way for somthing else that i'm really looking forward to trying :wink:

    This strap really is the business...

    The only problem you'll have is choosing which one :D

    Looks the business, but then I'm a big fan of green on PAMs myself...

    Actually, I bet that green hide would look the dogs on my PAM 177 Ti, my old Bremont (even a Sinn, or anything with the appearance of a bead blasted finish) as well.
