I just received my new Black Matte Finish Alligator Strap from Jeanna at Stone Creek Straps. I attached it to my Black Dial Tissot PRS-516 Automatic Watch.

I must say that I'm extremely happy with my new strap, and cheers to Jeanna for such an awesome strap and such amazing customer service! Jeanna promptly replied to my numerous emails, *believe me, I had a TON of questions* and she custom made it to my specifications. I even requested a specific 'grain pattern', and she did the best she could to match my request. "Shabash! Shabash! Jeanna!" In case you are all wondering, "Shabash!" means "Excellent Job!" or "Well Done!" in the Hindi language.

The strap is "substantially padded" at approximately 6mm at the lugs, as you can see in the pictures! This strap really ads substance to my Tissot PRS516 Automatic. It is also very comfortable, having being lined with pigskin. The original Tissot brown perforated strap just wasn't cutting it for me. This strap makes the watch appear way more expensive than it is. I feel like its a completely different watch, an awesome "beefed up" version!

It arrived in a very nice presentation box, with her business card.

Please view the pictures below, and believe me, these pictures DO NOT do the band justice at all....looks way better in person. If you're looking to get a custom strap done, I highly recommend Jeanna at Stone Creek Straps. She's one of a kind, and is highly skilled at what she does.

You can reach her at [email protected]
or check her website at http://www.stonecreekstraps.com

Enjoy the pictures!

I'm anxiously awaiting 2 straps from Stone Creek Straps as well. Hoping they will help revive some lost love for a watch I haven't worn in a while.

That black gator looks sweet - the grain is very classy looking. Congrats!

Thanks Corruptor, you'll be very happy with the quality of Stone Creek Straps. Jeanna's awesome, and believe it it looks WAY better in real life than the pictures! Make sure u post pics when you get your straps.....

Suits the watch nicely and looks very well made.
One small quibble?
I think you went a bit overboard with 2 wide keepers?
Perhaps just one would do?
Congrats and thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for the compliment! Actually I'm quite fond of the "wide keepers"....I specifically had both of them made wide like that. I don't know I guess I like the look of them. Do appreciate your thread post though...thanks!

Tahb, that strap is a beauty and it looks great on your Tissot. The padding on the strap is pretty sweet. Also loving the deployant you have on it. Nice work :-!

Sweet! I have nearly the same strap on order from Jeanna for my Omega 2254.50, with the exception of white thread and standard keeper. Should be here in a couple of weeks and I can't wait!! That looks fantastic on your Tissot and I would love to see it in person...

thanks man! appreciate it. if yo don't mind be sure to add the pictures of your Stone Creek Strap Gator with white thread on this thread. I was also considering going with the white thread, but I ended up going with matching. Looking forward to seeing your strap! Jenna is awesome!
