Custom leather for gold C3 with CW deployant?

Post by Drmarkf »

Dear all,

Please can anyone recommend a custom leather strap maker (preferably UK or European based) who could turn out a nice antique or saddle leather custom strap to use with my gold C3 when I want an alternative to the gold bracelet?

The lovely Wera has sold me a gold CW deployment clasp, so what I need is a strap for 20mm lugs that will fit the 18mm CW clasp. I could perhaps send them the clasp to ensure it fitted.

I'd go for a Toshi in a flash, but Rich doesn't do tapered straps.

Alternatively, does anyone know of a source for ready-made straps that will fit? I'm not that keen on the alternatives offered currently by CW.
Regards,
Mark

Try SteveOStraps. Cheaper than Toshi and more flexible. He did a nice black leather with yellow stitching for my C60 yellow.

Any 20mm strap will fit a C3. Try The Strap Shop. All teh straps and bracelets I have had from them have been good.

Great, thanks. Very useful tips.
I've been in touch with Steve, and I'll be sending him the CW deployment buckle so he can ensure the strap fits it.
