> > M61 already sporting NEW SHOES - Black Matte Large Scale Gator w/ blue stitching

In addition to the FedEx tracking of M61 delivery, there was another tracking number I had my eye on yesterday ;-)
My favorite strap maker that also made my custom straps for LT M27 as well as V3, was shipping me a new strap
for this M61. It was a wild coincidence that the watch and the strap were delivered within hours of each
other as I ordered the strap over 2 months ago. (some delay was also caused by me since she mailed me
5 different threads of blue thread to match the dial and I took my time to pick one).

To be honest, as much as love M61 - I was not crazy about the OEM strap. No worries, I guess the guys
at LT know that we like to play with additional straps anyway.

So here is the custom 'matte black, large scale gator':

I am very happy with the outcome - this news strap looks great and feels / fits like a glove.
(I just quickly snapped a few pictures when I woke up and on my drive to work.)

That looks very awesome. How big did you tell your strap maker to make the holes so that the LT deploy would work well?

No specific instructions about holes were made except that I wanted the pin from the deployant go
through the hole rather tough (i.e tight fit). After I purchased the LT deployant, I had LT guys
to ship it directly to my strap maker. Then the strap was made exactly to fit the deployant.

That looks really classy! I am not just saying that for the sake of saying it, really impressed by the look esp with the LT deployment.

Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of contrast stitching; but I gotta say--you hit that one outta the park. That's just gorgeous; you matched that thread perfectly & the gator is stunning. Well done, sir, exceptionally well done!!

Strap

Yeah, I agree. That strap complements the watch perfectly. Very nice, indeed. Is the maker a secret? Would you care to share? That would go quite well withe the M62 I'm waiting on with much anticipation.

Excellent strap choice, Milos! Makes an already gorgeous M61 even more so!

The strapmaker isn't a forum sponsor so it's against site policy to mention her name/company.

The strap looks amazing. I think the blue thread really compliments the blue dial. I hope we have such great strapmaker in Singapore too. :thumbup1:

That answers the question I asked in another thread, and is as I suspected. A fantastic looking strap, as you would expect from that strap maker. Well done Milos!
