This is a Bund I made for a friend's vintage Omega dress watch.  The watch was his father's, and my friend never wore it much because of the relatively diminutive size.  I suggested a Bund strap to beef it up and make it a little more sporty.  He wanted rivets (ended up with Chicago screws) and I just kinda winged it on the design.  It's certainly not traditional, but I think it turned out OK and he's please as punch with it.  The wrist shots were taken moments after mounting the watch and the leather was relatively stiff.  He says after a day of wear it's softening up nicely.

Very nice...I like it.  It keeps the watch lower on the wrist!
