© Erwan GreyThere so many times we ask ourselves: how it is possible that a leather strap uses in a clock “diver”?. Well, the answer is very simple: a large crowd of fans do not wear their watches for diving, they just use it to go out to the street. And when they need to dive, they just change the strap for one more appropriate.

If we add a brand that is characterized by the love of their owners straps, the fun is guaranteed. If there is a watch brand that is recognized by its straps, is Panerai.

Its a little small size does not make him a little brother of the “submersible” series, but its 1950 case and 1.000meters of depth range, applying for a strap according to this magnificent clock. One day I just offer to Peter Gunny the opportunity to create me a custom strap for the 243. I wanted a thick, vintage, according to the design and the history of its 1950 case and a consistent color and buckle with a thread for stitching of yore, those used to weave networks or flats fishing piers colors and with its own identity.

I just tell to Peter my idea and he was a genius at the moment of design the strap. When he finished, he liked it so much that he decided to add to its catalog of straps to the public.
