New Gunny straps for my 233

When I first got my 233 I got a few Toshi straps - http://www.rolexforums.com/showthread.php?t=420370

I wanted something different next time and after a few emails with Pattyb69 decided on a couple of Gunny straps - the Caitlin 2 and Caitlin 4. I took some photos of them today.

The Caitlin 2 (the lighter one) is softer and really comfortable, but I like them both.

Beautiful straps Martin! And those photos are awesome! Its such a pain in the a$$ to get a good photo of the 233 without reflecting yourself on the dome

Nice to see a quality photo of the Caitlin 4. I may have to add this to my strap list

Congrats, both look great!

You're not wrong there! I'm a photographer, but don't have any kit for product shots, so a few chairs with a white sheet and a black sheet carefully placed over them, and lots of trial and error.

I got mine yesterday!!

I asked for a slightly different formula, that's why it looks a little bit different from the regular design.
The quality is really nice and the leather is soft and supple. (Maybe not as supple as the toshi storm grey but I believe it will after few days of wearing)

I recently ordered a Caitlin 1 from Gunny for my 305 (as well as an Amazon)...very impressed with Peter's straps!
