    WRUW - Wednesday - 31 October 2018

    Good day, IWL.

    Trying to avoid the rain. Not a great success, apparently.

    Happy Halloween to those like me who are still around 7 years old, in terms of emotional development.


    Something sorta black and orangish maybe, from mlcor...

    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    The pessimist says it can't get any worse while the optimist says it can.

    You should ask for 50% non-refundable when order placed Iyonk, as a gesture of goodwill
    You're making bespoke stuff, no decent customer would bat an eyelid for such a request. (i.e. they'd be more than happy to pay a deposit - it's just normal business practice)

    Shame it's not 1mm wider , it would fit my bigger Eberhard 8 Jour

    yes, you're totally correct Mike and that's the right way to do it... unfortunately this guy is from Philippines which make communication hindered a bit.. i was okay to take the order since it was his second order.. (he contact me thru instagram).. i will store the strap for now since it is not easy to sell a bespoke strap.. this one was made to fit sub 6,5" wrist and for a Stowa with 18mm lug.. that's why i made this 18mm taper to 16mm with 110mm for the long part and 70mm for the short part.. either i will wear it myself for my 18mm lug Seiko 5 or try to offer to sell the strap to a domestic customer with smaller wrist (not easy from what i tried in the past.. a 20mm might be easier, but 18mm is a bit more limited) i've been very2 limited with materials and almost run out of resources lately which make things a bit more difficult to swallow..
    i'll just take some rest for now.. i can deal with these situation since honestly it happen quite often..
    Thank you for your inputs Mike.. appreciate it..

    Meanwhile it always heart warming to have a satisfied customer also.. this one is from Germany
