 BESPOKE NYLON WATCH STRAPS

This category brings together a great selection of bespoke made nylon watch straps all made by myself here at GGB HQ. There is a large range here and surely something for everyone and every watch, from Panerai to Omega, IWC to Seiko.  Many of the straps can have a custom engraved buckle fitted as a 'hop up' option (made in house) too making your chosen watch strap even more unique.

 

Please have a good look around and fingers crossed you will find something you like.

  

IMPORTANT INFO PLEASE READ - GGB is a one man operation and from time to time I need to throttle the amount of bespoke orders that come through the site. This is to allow me some catch up time and also keep lead times to an acceptable level. If your chosen item is unavailable during this visit then please use the 'notify me' function under any strap price, alternatively look and remember the date in the shop status above. Thank you.

  1. My Time

    My Time

    £10.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    This 'product' is for exactly as it says, you are purchasing my time or slots of time to do your work.

    In the past I have been too generous with my time doing one off jobs and not charging for the time its taken. I have even been known to do jobs for free ! I enjoy doing favours and one offs for people but its just not good business sense for me to do stuff for free ! For example, some time ago I made some clock stands which I have to design and CAD draw from scratch, this turned out to be a 2 and 1/2 to 3 hour job of which I just charged £12 of the normal clock stand ! Ive done other jobs too, repair work, engravings etc and barely charged, so this year Im determined to get a grip on of the situation!   Not only am I under selling myself, time taken has a knock on effect with all other jobs I need to do that comes through the books. I hope this makes sense and you understand my action taken to address this. 

    So from now on any 'off piste' jobs that require me to down tools and work solely on your project will incur the My Time fee.

    Time is broken down in to half hour slots of 10 GBP each, making my hourly rate just 20 GBP.  

    My Time is charged for time. It does not include materials or shipping, these are additional costs to be added to the total.

    What would you use this for ? Well, for example you may want a watch stand making and engraving similar to my LE Speedy stands. You may want me to design a strap for you that doesn't already exist or you may want a wall plaque manufactured. Maybe you want an aircraft clock stand making or a bespoke mouse mat, or even engraved brass plaques for your door or desk. These are all things I have custom made for people in the past and barely charged !!

    If you want to use this service then the first thing to do is to contact me with your requirements. I will assess the job and give you a quote. I will never over quote for a job and if I find the job takes longer than expected then I will not charge for the extra time its taken. You will never pay more than the initial quote.

    Q) what can I use this service for?

    A) Anything that you think I can make for you. A quick look on my website here, 6B watches.com and on my instagram feed will give you an idea of my work.  In my inventory I have a laser cutter/engraver, lathe, milling machine, usual hand tools, a vinyl cutter etc as well as a dedicated engraving machine. I can work with wood, laminates, plastics, aluminium and brass, nylons and leather and do lathe and milling work within the capacity of my machine.

    Q) How do you take payment for one offs?

    A) An initial quote is given and if you accept you will then pay half up front using this page. On completion of the job images will be sent to you and if you are happy then second half of My Time is to be payed before the job ships.  If you dont like the finshed job or you simply change your mind then the initial half payment is not refundable.

  2. ROCKET

    ROCKET

    £75.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    SOLD OUT

    ROCKET 

    Some time ago I made a proto version of ROCKET and posted it on my instagram feed. It gained a lot of interest and thoughts turned to producing more of these cool desk top ornaments. 

    From that initial proto discussions then started about making a small run of these. The proto was made on my manual lathe and milling machine and I could carry on doing this. However, this method is very labour intensive and with all the best will in the world it would be hard for me to get every single one exactly the same !

    So I have had some CAD drawings and renders made and from there have taken my design  and found a machine shop willing to part make these in small numbers. 

    ROCKET is manufactured from solid aluminium and stands 145mm high. It will come to you boxed as shown. Its not based on any rocket design in particular, I just wanted a retro look and feel, hopefully I have achieved this. 

    Please look at the images I have supplied here, I think you will agree that it looks ever so cool and of course, GGB unique !

    YOU ARE BUYING A BATCH 2 ROCKET - SMALL LEAD TIME OF AROUND 2 WEEKS 

    Remember, this is all my own work and all made in the United Kingdom 

    Q) What is ROCKET ?

    A) Good question. Id just say its a super cool desk top ornament or metal art. It could be a paperweight in your office or imagine it as a bonnet ornament for your classic car :-) 

    ~

    Q) What does it do

    A) Sits on your desk looking super cool.

    ~

    Q) Its a lot of money, isn't it?

    A ) Not really. I've built it from proto to finished product. Its a unique product and in small numbers. You're paying for CAD drawing, CNC work, fees I incur from my payment gateways, tax mans cut, oh, and after all that I have to make a few quid. Price is based on all these factors. 

    ~

    Q) How many are you making 

    A) I would love to sell a 1000 :-) However, I would imagine initial batches of 10 and see how they go. 

    ~

    Q) What surface finish will ROCKET have ?

    A) As shown

    ~

    Q) Whats the lead time ?

    A) Batch 2 - around 2 weeks from 28th 02 19 

    ~

    Q) Where is ROCKET made?

    A) ROCKET is designed and manufactured here in Great Britain. 

    ~

    Q) Do you make them ?

    A) ROCKET body and fins are CNC made. They will come to me in rough format which I then do some post proccess work like polish and grain and box work.

    SPV1.5 Personalisable patches ~ available for purchase

    £33.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    The exact same strap as the SPV1 but with an engraved waxed leather patch instead of the black cloth version.

    Designed originally after I bought my first Speedmaster many 'moons' ago. After a few tweaks along the way and webbing upgrades it has become a firm favourite for Speedy owners. Have a change from the usual Steel or Leather, I'm sure you will love it! Stainless steel loop as standard fit and Im sure you would struggle to find a more comfortable strap.

    On the SPV1.5 the Loop Velcro runs along the full length of the strap and is sewn into the fold area around the steel loop.The keeper tabs, either 20-22mm are sewn on top of the Velcro. The end of the strap is squared off with a double fold and sewn so the fold is visible on the outside. The SPV1 is one of my most popular straps and will suit many tool watches giving them a much more tactical look to Leather or steel.

    LEATHER PATCHES - Please look HERE for your leather patch choice for this strap, they are now a darker leather as shown in the gallery. If choosing personalised please email before ordering to confirm I can fit on your text or design.

    BULOVA. This strap can be made to fit the Bulova. When the Bulova Hz patch is selected I will adjust the strap accordingly to fit the larger Lug-to-Lug

    *** IMPORTANT ****  BUCKLES ARE NOW ALUMINIUM AND ARE THE SHAPE AS SHOWN IN THE GALLERY.

  7. SPV4 ~Earth bound NASA strap

    SPV4 ~Earth bound NASA strap

    £28.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    The main body of this strap is made from 25mm loop Velcro. On top of that is sewn either 20 or 22mm nylon keeper tabs for the black but is only available for 20mm lug widths in the Tan and green.  The end of the strap is squared off by folding over the Velcro so that the fold is visible as worn.

    This strap is a scaled down version of the NASA blueprint strap V207 but with a rectangular loop instead of the D. If you dig the NASA look but don't have the space suit to go with a V207 then this strap is the perfect solution.

    Be sure to try out the 360 view mode to look around the strap.

  10. Identity buckle for NATO G10s

    Identity buckle for NATO G10s

    £25.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    Strap identity buckle.

    Designed and conceived to be use with NATO G10 straps the identity buckle fits standard G10 straps of 20 and 22mm. Perfect as supplementary Identity for Military, fire service, pilots, Po-Po etc

    Design here can be re-jigged a little but I only have limited space, character count is around 10 to 12 depending on letters used. Please enquire before any special request. Once confirmed put in your special request in the box below and If I have any problems I will let you know and we can work something out.

    Buckle simply threads through as shown in pics and locks in place. This buckle will also fit nylon and leather NATOs from other manufacturers but you may not be able to lock the buckle depending on the design of the strap. I always fit 22mm Natos to my 20mm lug width watches as I prefer a wider strap, so please be aware when looking over the images here that its a 22mm NATO pictured on the Chronograph.

    The strap on the CWC dive watch is 20mm. The 22mm NATO loop fits nicely in the slot in the identity buckle, 20mm will fit just as well but there will be more of a gap within the ident buckle loops. It goes without saying that any private information engraved on these buckles WILL NOT be photographed and posted on social media etc.

    IMPORTANT - Since taking these images I have changed machine on which I engrave them. ( I will update images when I get a moment)  Engraving will be slightly differant to as shown here as they are now engraved on a dedicated engraving machine. You can request fonts, if I have them and they fit well I will certainly try my best to fit any engraving you want on the buckle neatly.

    Tudor Rose ~ Dedicated strap for your Black Bay

    £49.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    Ive been asked a few times if I can do a dedicated strap for the Black Bay and here is the result.

    My Zero Zero strap is a best seller and I just knew that marrying up a black ZZ with maroon or blue stitch and engraved buckle would look amazing. I hope you agree this combo looks spot on ! Identical to the Zero Zero the strap features the Tudor rose engraved on the buckle and painted in either maroon or blue. 25mm wide webbing with 22mm black keepers finished with a colour coded highlight stitch.

    This strap will look just as amazing on the Pelagos too so I have added an option in the dropdown. This strap for the Pelagos will come with black engraving on the buckle and white stitch.

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    The mid size BRV in the range is this 30mm wide strap and available for 20 and 22mm lug widths. Personally I would recommend that you order this strap for 22mm lug widths as the 20mm can look a bit narrow. Visually the same as the other two BRV straps it has a slightly different webbing with a larger looser weave. Like the other two in the range, the 30mm wide pad can have the option of a coloured border stitch sewn in to match colour detail in your watch. The BRV2 comes in black only. Be sure to try out the 360 view mode to look around the strap. Learn More

  16. BRV3

    BRV3

    £27.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    Visually the same as the other two in the range, the BRV3 is only available for 20mm lug widths.The keeper webbing sits on the pad which is 25mm wide. Coloured border is an option and the strap is fitted with the standard loop. Four core colours here ( Black, Tan, NATO Green and Light Olive) are supplied from MOD contract suppliers and is mil spec - mil issue. The webbing here are used to make the UKs military PLCE ( Personal Load Carrying Equipment) I particularly like the look of the Light Olive and for extra geek points the Light Olive is infrared reflective. Now I don't know about you buy I find this feature extremely handy as I know my watch strap wont give my position away to the baddies (Wife) when im in the garden or fixing the car etc :-) Tons of colour options here so plenty for everyone. The Light Olive webbing looks equally good with green or the Tan stitch but is separate from the border stitch option. Be sure to try out the 360 view mode to look around the strap. Learn More
  17. Aquatimer

    Aquatimer

    £17.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    No need to pay IWC prices for that replacement Aquatimer strap, the GGB Aquatimer is pretty much exactly the same and I would dare to say better made! It will of course suit many dive watches as well as other none dive tool watches. Simply attach one end via the spring bar and thread the loose end through the other end, around and attach. Available in 20,22,24mm widths and in any length for possible use over dive suit etc. Important note : If you select 24mm I will actually use 25mm, this is because 24mm is a none standard size from my suppliers. (and also hard to find consistently anywhere else) Customers note that they have no problem squishing the 25mm into 24mm but I will happily refund anyone that is not happy with the fit once tried on the watch. You will need to make sure there is a couple of MM gap between the watch case and the spring bar or tube. Be sure to try out the 360 view mode to look around the strap. IMPORTANT : I can only make a 22mm version in black Learn More

  20. V207 NASA strap.

    V207 NASA strap.

    £29.00

    Sorry, unavailable at this time. Check inside to be notified of availability.

    One for true Speedmaster fans!

    Without having the actual materials to hand that NASA had back in the day, this is the most accurate NASA strap I can build. Made directly using the NASA blueprints, this strap is the 207 as shown in the galley here. The blueprints for this strap are posted up on the late, great Chuck Maddox's Speedmaster resource site. What that guy didn't know about Speedmasters wasn't worth knowing!

    The strap is 19" long and was designed to go around the suits worn by the Apollo crews, safely holding their Speedmaster in place.

    If you are a collector of Speedmasters and NASA memorabilia then the V207 is a worthy addition to the collection. Of course, if you happen to have space suit to hand then all the better!
