Mate I used a bunch of different techniques (or torture more like) involved immersing the strap in heated salt water for an extended time , then with a micro motor and a felt polishing wheel I polished the edges of the strap to kind of make small pearls from the canvas edges , then I used a corse wheel to rough the edges slightly , and again a polish on the trailing and leading edges to keep the rough look only on the very acute angles of the edges , more soaking under water but on the watch with a watch winder head spring holder to keep pressure streaching the strap into shape !
Then with the buckle I luster polished & bevelled the edges to round em out a bit and high polished the flat surface for some bling
It's absolute madness I know but hey , if the shoe fits
So much MORE than just a Watch
What Watch ,, it's the M8TES behind my brand that I LOVE ,, the Watch is just the GPS
A decade on ,, I COPY it now ,, More than EVER b4 >> it's a PANERAI behind every Panerai is a PANERISTI
