    If anyone here likes watches or Leatherwork, check out the leather 5-ring Zulu strap I just made. It's made of Horween Chromexcel in burgundy. Sooo soft and sooo nice.

    Thanks! I'm in love with the style. Also, for anyone who works leather but has never tried Horween, the Chromexcel is amazing stuff!

    Are you making these to sell?

    I hadn't started out that way but a fellow with whom I work bought one from me for $ I couldn't turn down... Apparently there's only one other Zulu that's widely available in this leather and they ask around $100 for them. My coworker offered $60 for me to make him one so I did.

    That's some decent money. Maybe that should be your asking price for those.

    Dunno. Maybe. It's the leather they're made from. Expensive stuff. I'm inclined to set the price about there for the Horween leather and offer a cheaper price on a version made from more economical leather:)

    Good idea. You should try and sell some.
