I hope I am able to post something here this week, since I will be leaving within a few minutes to Paris in France. For work ofcourse. If I have the time, I will try to visit some watchstores or at least have a few glances at the windows at the Place de la Vendome ofcourse.

Anyway, I hope I can post about watches from Paris. I will be sporting my Panerai this week and with a bit of luck I can visit the ABP store in Paris to get a custom made leather strap!

    Hello Patrick,

    I didn’t have time to visit the ABP store, they close at 18:30 and I didn’t leave the office before 19:00. The last time I visit them, they didn’t have much straps in stock. However, the owner, Yann, seems to be Panerai fan as well, so he might has a few ‘ready’ for you!

    I visited ABP in Paris yesterday; they do have quite a collection straps for Panerai in stock.

    I bought a strap for my Speedmaster Professional Mk IV (which I just got fully restored back from Omega in Biel).

    An absolute hammer; Frog Skin! I’ll pist pictures later.

    Niks langsgaan.. Je kunt via de site je strap helemaal zelf (laten_ maken, inclusief initialen 🙂
    Heb er net een besteld voor mijn PAM112
