Thread: Welcome to 2019 IWL Strap Raffle...

  1. #1

    Welcome to 2019 IWL Strap Raffle...

    Hallo all IWL family member...

    Here i present you a very special "iyonk strap"... made from a genuine USA Horween leather that i only have very2 small quantity.. i don't even currently have one with the same material...
    All i can say, those of you who already have one/some of my straps (thank you) will find this one as a significant upgrade... and those who never have one will start from the very best one...

    Here is the Prize..

    It has a natural brown color that always change in shade and will develop surface characters like a "pilot bomber jacket"... but you got to earn the patina by wear it often...

    The strap is 20mm taper to 18mm , and the length is 120mm for the long part and 78mm for the short/buckle side.. (you could change the buckle to suit you better)
    Will fit wrist from 6,25" to 7,5" (i can shorten the length if the winner have smaller wrist)

    The strap will suit and look magnificent on Omega Speedmaster, vintage Rolex Sub or any vintage inspired Diver like Oris 65, Tudor BB58, some 20mm lug Field Watch and so on..

    On the side notes, the strap can not be installed in new Rolex like Daytona or ceramic bezel submariner since those case bite hard and will ruin the lug part of the strap.

    Here is the thickness reference compared to Seiko Diver Rubber.

    Thank you @iyonk! Very generous. Might have been better to wait a month or two to let people's wallets recover from the gshock donation, but still! All goes towards my APRO fund...

    People wonít make further casual donations - and you wouldnít expect them to, even after a pause - but Iím sure thereíll be no shortage of people who want a very fine Horween strap for $10.
