watch accessories

i'm really enjoying two-tone stitching and rubber bracelets lately. that said, do you have a go-to place where you buy your extras?

i generally don't buy watches from gray market but wouldn't mind getting accessories online.

so what you're into lately and where are you getting it? this can include tools and boxes too.

it was for you and nice.

i was hoping this would be a cool thread to discuss not only our sources but what type of accessories we're into at the moment.

i'm really into rubber watchbands right now and will be picking up a new box winder. my current watch box isn't a winder but i still like it.

yeah I can't wait. I'll post a pic when I get it. Right now I have the B&R canvas strap on it, which I really like. I needed a new rubber one bc mine broke and B&R warranted it for me, really nice of them.

I've had a couple of straps made by Dangerous 9 Straps. John does outstanding work. I'll certainly buy from him again.

This is a hand-antiqued alligator strap he did for me about 6 months ago.

Very nice, love the IWC. I am saving up for one, still got a little while to go. You do realize the that the band is backward, the buckle should be at the top. Unless you wanted it that way.

The Portuguese Automatic is a perfect watch, IMO. I love mine.

As for the strap, it's for a deployant clasp which goes on with the clasp at 6 and the long end at 12.

Ahh, I see. I have deployment clasp on my Longines but I still think that it goes the other way, I will have to check.

I thought the same thing when I saw it. Looks strange but reference pictures showed it as correct.
