About GasGasBones

As GasGasBones I have been making bespoke nylon watch straps for over five years now and have built up a very good reputation for quality straps at a very reasonable price. I made my first velcro strap not long after getting my first Omega Speedmaster Pro. Since then I have built up a small range of straps that are pretty much unique. For around 3 years I produced the straps used on the Bremont MB range of watches, something I am very proud of doing.

In 2011 I achieved mild WIS fame when I was contacted to do a small interview with Hodinkee watch blog !! Link to Hodinkee interview. Here

Watchpro magazine also approached me for an article they did on straps. The article can be found here. http://www.watchpro.com/emagazines/w_95.php

GasGasBones is now my full time occupation but I recently worked at the UK tri service Rehabilitation centre at Headley court in Surrey. We look after all our injured servicemen and women that have been injured both at home and overseas. I worked in the prosthetics department making Prosthetic limbs. I still have links with the Headely Court and still go in from time to time when they need holiday cover.

I served nearly 25 Years in the Royal Air Force as a Survival Equipment Fitter. As a Survival Equipment Fitter I was responsible for the service, repair and rectification of man carrying parachutes, harnesses, Brake parachutes, Night vision equipment, helmet mounted sights, some ejection seat components, lifrafts and Apache flying clothing and more ! I did tours in The Falklands, Kuwait, Oman, Jordan and Afghanistan along with shorter detachments in other counties along the way.

Originally from Leeds I now live in Surrey with my wife Hilary and our two Kids. I love Motorbikes, Classic cars, guitars, making random “stuff” and Music.


If you are a repeat visitor or past customer then welcome back to the all new site, i hope you like it! If you are new to GasGasBones straps then please have a good look around the site and hopefully you will find something you like.

What I have on the site now are my old favourites, like the SPV and the BRV range of straps. I have also added a couple of new strap designs and new products. I will be adding even more in the coming weeks and months.

I am also trying to source my own branded and designed buckles for use with my straps. I am hoping that I will be able to offer these buckles in both stainless steel and PVD in the three sizes I need, 20, 22 and 24mm.

I will be adding new designs in the future so please check back from time to time. For now though I hope you find something you like.

All my straps are handmade by myself in my own purpose built workshop here in the UK.

Do not accept any compromises. I believe GGB straps are the best made, value for money bespoke nylon straps you can buy.
