My husband Lance collects watches. This year, for Christmas, he got a beautiful Steinhart Ocean Green. He saw several sites online that were selling leather watchbands made from vintage leather ammo cases from WWII. He decided to try and make his own. Now Lance has never worked with leather before - but that didn't deter him...he is amazing at figuring out things! he ordered a few tools online and VOILA.
