    The Strap Tailor - Dark Green Ostrich ...

    I am extremely pleased with the honey ostrich that I ordered a few weeks ago from David at The Strap Tailor.

    I was looking for a new strap to give a lift to the IWC 5001, which is very sober on the OEM black 'gator strap.
    I hadn't considered green, but David has a very subtle dark green ostrich skin which morphs to black, depending on the light.

    It was hard work to get a decent image in the limited light today, but I hope that these shots capture the essence of these ostrich skins.

    How much do these cost - looks very good quality. Soft?

    Looks great. A black dial gives lots of opportunities for colourful combos.

    @ASW1 - Good evening Alun

    I was torn between the green and a vivid electric blue that is featured on his Instagram page and website.

    The strap was quite stiff for the first couple of days - I gently worked the leather into a curve, moving closer to the lugs, and it now fits perfectly.


    Curved ends, the IWC tail and custom lengths are all included in the price - some strapmakers charge extra for bespoke work.

    The retail price is 139, but the Instagram site offers the code 'STRAP15', which reduces the price to 118 including recorded postage !

    Hi Ian, surely the blue had got to be an inevitability, a great compliment to both the green strap and the watch ;)
