We received this fantastic testimonial from one of our customers this morning that he posted onto watchuseek.com, a popular men’s watch forum and can be found here ( http://forums.watchuseek.com/f15/superocean-heritage-46-bas-lokes-603448.html ). Thanks for the kind words, mate. He purchased our “Roman” 24mm handmade watch strap for his beautiful Breitling Super Ocean 46. I want one of these now.
I bought this Breitlings Super Ocean Heritage 46 last month (sorry-still wrapped in plastic in shots!) and then waited patiently for “Bas & Lokes” of Sydney to supply me with two new straps. Ultimately the watch will be worn on a mesh more often than not (ordered as I bought on the rubber strap) but I wanted to give the watch some leather alternatives – a slightly retro/vintage feel to compliment the heritage of the watch itself.
The watch is mounted on the mid tan ‘Roman’ strap which is almost butter soft after trying it on only a few times. In the final shot is the gorgeous chocolate brown ‘Bastion’ also, which I love as it has so few details. There are many great strap makers out there, but “Bas & Lokes”offer a beautiful line of really elegant, subtle and refined straps in my opinion.”
