Hand made two watch straps. One with a square end the other with a pointed tip. One has all round hand stitching, the other without.
While the replacement strap without the stitching sports a clean look, the glue keeping the surface and the underside of the strap eventually becomes brittle and open up down the center. Stitching is not just beautiful but functional too, really.
Juxtaposing the surface and underside.
A close up shot of the stitching.
