Due to the nature of my opening and closed catch up schedule, it is impossible for me to stick to a rigid lead time. 

Orders typicaly come through in a three day open phase making it impossible for me to then get all those orders out at a specific lead time.

I try my very best to get goods out within a couple of weeks but enevitably lead times do run over.


At checkout there is a tick box. Ticking this box means you have read andf understood this lead time.  


Depending on what is in front of your order this lead time may fluctuate either way a little so please be aware of this when placing an order. 

Please also note,  for all GGB BESPOKE goods the green IN STOCK tick only means I have materials to make up your order.


When I have reached capacity and to reduce backlogs I will close off orders to all bespoke made goods but you will then have the option to be notified when I 're-stock'


Lead time does not affect 'off the shelf' items such as Phoenix NATO's and tooling which will go at the next postal run from order date   

Emails : I get a lot of emails which I struggle to keep on top of sometimes. I do try and answer in a timely manner but please give me a nudge again if I do not respond within a few days.

Wrist measuring guide
When measuring the wrist for your wrist size it is important to get this as accurate as you can to help save any issues with fit.

Please measure the wrist with the tape measure touching all the way around the wrist but not pulled too tightly.

Please do not be tempted to add any to the finished length. I build the straps around a metal wrist/Jig that I set to the wrist size you give me.

Lug-to-Lug explained

Simply measure from the centre of one spring bar or tube, across the watch (north to south) to the centre of the other spring bar or tube. This is your Lug-to-Lug measurement.

Strap Adjustment

Each gasgasbones strap is made to your wrist size. I incorporate around 10-15mm of adjustment in each strap for use between warmer and cooler days.


'Chocks away'

This strap initially came about due to a request from 29 Sqn aircrew for a custom strap to go with their Limited Edition Helgray Typhoon watches. The strap is essentially my Black Cat strap but stitched in red white and blue highlight stitch, a union flag fitted and the RAF roundel engraved on the buckle. At the right we can then place your call sign or Sqn emblem.The strap can be configured for 20, 22 and 24mm lug widths.

If you are a Sqn member and think this is something you would like for you or your Squadron watches just give me a shout and we can have a chat.

The strap is priced at £55 for general purchasers. For military personal there is a discount if shipped to a military address. There is also a discount on this strap for either 6B MK1 or MK2 owners.  If there is a single order of ten or more then a further discount will apply. Please contact me at carl@gasgasbones.com to discuss your requirements.

Are you serving in the US airforce ? the strap can also be tweaked to represent your own squadron for my friends across the pond.

This strap / concept is a new idea so at the moment I have just a couple of samples in the gallery. I will add to these as I go along. Initially I have 29 Sqn 3 Xs and a callsign version. I have added a couple of sample renders to give you some inspiration and along with the photos will give you an idea of what the finished look will be like and what I can achieve.
