I'm just not ready to admit that this watch is too big for me.
A quick bit of rough prototyping. That suede is soo warm and soft (my winter watch? haha), but I don't know how it'll hold up if I break a sweat.
A hybrid nato strap, if you will. If I want to stick with this concept, I'll have to lengthen the middle portion so that the rest of the strap conforms to my wrist (the lugs hold the pins pretty high) and then sew up most of the two cuts so it all keeps shape. Otherwise I could figure out a way to hold the watch down without such cuts.
Closer to what I'm getting at (I folded the side bits). Still need to come up with a simple closure.
Don't hold your breath, folks; I haven't lost my job, and my motivation for personal projects is ever an ebb and flow kind of thing.
p.s. Why does it take five clicks to upload a stinkin' picture?
