2 more arrivals, 1 strap and 1 tool

Post by Guest on Tue Jan 18, 2011 4:20 pm

I have heard so much about Stone Creek Straps that I had to take a look for myself. Thanks William (watchdaddy)! I contacted Jeanna and had several discussions with her and then placed my order. I highly recommend Jeanna. She is a total professional and she is most definitely a great communicator and is very service oriented. Her work is impeccable and her packaging is a wonderful addition to the whole deal. I ordered a 22mm alligator with creme contrast stitching and rolled edges for my Omega PO. I also see that it will be a beaut on my Mido Baroncelli.















Now, I wanted to put the strap on the PO but I didn't want to mess up the lugs so I had to wait until a new tool arrived:






The pliers are wonderful and made the change from bracelet to strap easy and "mark" free. I just went slowly and had no slips or misses. A bit pricey for the tool but I can use it on several other watches as well so I feel it was worth it for me. I think the strap looks great on the PO and I will have to try it on the Baroncelli. What do you guys think?

My bad! I thought you meant Jim Skelton when you said tool!

Nice watch John. Thanks for letting me try it on. I almost made it out the door.

Good looking strap John. Are the springbars hard to get to on the PO?

Not at all Mark. The tool makes it pretty easy. If you try to remove one side at a time, you would most likely scratch things up. The end links have the extended ears that reach out over the underside of the lugs ( recipe for disaster trying to take one side out at a time).

She does excellent work. I was very pleased with the shark strap she made for me, as well as the consultation and overall experience. Well worth the expense, IMHO. That combination looks very nice on your PO.
