If I were going to get a PAM, I'd get that one.

Hey Don, welcome
I bought my very first aftermarket strap from you 17-18 years ago.
Post up your beautiful 9B

Loved your carbon fiber straps :cheers:

Glad you like the strap Art. Is that the watch image from my site you sent me?

Thanks

Yep that's my old watch and your carbon strap.
I think you used this image above and the SKX007 on that strap as well :)

Nice strap that looked great on pilots watches.

Too bad they switched the leather with polyurethane material. Thats when I stopped buying them. Looked a bit cheaper, but price cost was the same.

Sorry, but not the Freda guy

Who I am is the first person to sell wrist watch straps on the Internet when there were only 2 watch forums.

I'm also the creator of Panerai third party straps, buckles tubes, etc. Then came everyone else

Been around the various forums for close to 19 years

Regards

What was your business name?

Actually still in business

Back then when I started. Didn't really need a name. Used a cheap web hosting site. Didn't even have a link for it.

Built a site later on, but not slick some some sellers (pat-timers that can afford it). Homestead. Some said it sucked, but still bought. Still looks the same

Also sold vintage watches I restored

Site name is Time's Running Out, but everyone just refers to my product as Don's straps

Mainly sell Panerai straps now

Regards

Welcome to DWC. I really hope you're not as sensitive as the last Canadian Don we had.

Hey Don! Welcome. You'll find this place much different than the other forums.
