GGB featured in International Watch Magazine

No need to be stuck with the strap that came with your new or vintage watch. Strap makers across the globe offer stylish options.

Someone once said that when you wear a watch, eighty percent of your wrist is strap and the other twenty percent is the watch itself,” says Nick Gabarro, a St. Paul, Minnesota-based watch collector and purveyor of straps. A visit to Gabarro’s office is evidence that he lives by those words. By rough estimate, eighty percent of his office is filled with straps—in boxes, in bags, on shelves—while the other twenty percent has a few necessities like chairs and a computer.

As watch sales continue to climb and interest in vintage timepieces grows, aftermarket straps are a way to individualize a watch and quickly and affordably change its look. New strapmakers seem to pop up almost weekly in all corners of the globe.

 !!!  OPEN  !!!

After an extended closure to catch up and then take a break, GGB is now open !  I expect a rush and do not know at this stage how long I will be open before I need to snap off the ordering proccess for the next catch up phase. I suggest you be quick as I expect a rush !!  :-)  Anybody with email requests I will get back to ASAP, please do give me a nudge if you do not hear back within a few days. 

If this is your first time here, GGB is run by just myself and it is usual for me to have sporadic opening times and to have various items enabled or disabled.  I need to do this to throttle orders and keep leads times to an acceptable level. If at any time I'm closed or you find an item 'out of stock' and you would like to be notified when I open up again then please use the 'be notified' function in any of the strap pages (under item price)  This will ping an email to you the instant I re-enable ordering.

I thank everyone for their continued support and patience.   Carl 'Bones' Evans
