Nimitz Strap Recreation Project

What do you do when you have a great vintage pilot's strap and want to wear it on multiple watches? Well, seeing as how these aren't swatches, this isn't 1987 and three watches at once is frowned upon, I guess most people would simply swap the strap to the desired watch. Not Billy. No, this guy meticulously recreates the strap, a bunch of them actually, then posts beautiful photos for you to drool over only to tell you they're not or sale and he did them just for himself and friends. Bastard! Check out his "build log" for the complete break down of how the strap came to fruition. The guy even had his own buckles cast. Seriously?
