Customizing Roger Dubuis Excalibur Leather Straps
As a watch enthusiast, I know that each exquisite timepiece carries a unique story and memory. A watch is not just a tool to keep track of time, it is also a unique symbol of personal taste and style. However, over time, a Roger Dubuis Excalibur crocodile strap, which had been dearly loved by a client, had developed a serious oxidation problem. In this moment of crisis, he approached – through a friend – the customhu strap manufacturer for help in replacing the strap.
The story of a strap given a new lease of life
When we received the old strap, the first thing we did was an exhaustive evaluation. Upon examination, we found that the rubber end of the strap was still in fairly good condition, which meant that we could restore the strap by replacing the leather without having to replace the entire strap. This would not only reduce unnecessary expenditure, but more importantly, preserve the original qualities of this strap.
After full communication and discussion with the client, we unanimously decided to use the same brown alligator leather as the original strap as the new material. We felt that this would retain the maximum amount of the original style of the strap and the owner’s emotional connection to it. At the same time, we chose cowhide leather with a water-resistant bottom and hand-stitched linen thread, which not only enhances the durability of the strap but also adds to its texture. The delicate hemming process gives the new strap a neat and perfect look.
After several hours of meticulous work, this Roger Dubuis Excalibur crocodile leather strap has finally been restored to life. This is not just a physical restoration, but a respect for the past and an anticipation of the future. We are sure that this strap will accompany its owner to a new chapter in his life.
