I was looking for a specific Vintage WWII Leather Bundesrepublik for one of my wrist timepieces.
I needed a specific shade of blue to match the two-tone (noir and azul) ceramic bezel of my wrist timepiece (reference 116710BLNR). I searched Amazon, and I couldn’t find the specific shade of blue I wanted.
I decided to open my Etsy application to see if I would have better luck in finding a Vintage WWII Leather Bundesrepublik in the shade of blue that matched my wrist timepiece’s (reference 116710BLNR) two-tone ceramic bezel, as show, below — do you see the blue on the black and blue ceramic bezel?
After half an hour or so, I came across ETERNITIZZZ. I saw their product-line, and I was impressed with the leather-work of their leather Bunds; but, they didn’t have my shade of blue that matched the blue in my wrist timepiece’s two-tone ceramic bezel.
I sent ETERNITIZZZ a Private Message, and I spoke to Dickson. I told him I liked a product he designed, but the blue Vintage WWII Leather Bundesrepublik, in the picture below, doesn’t match my wrist timepiece (reference 116710BLNR).
He asked for a picture of my wrist timepiece, and he concluded he could make a special Bund for me matching my specifications. He gave me his price, and I agreed and made payment.
Dickson mentioned he needed time to create the leather dye to match my wrist timepiece.
After about 1.5 months, I finally took possession and custody of my Special Blue Leather Bund from Dickson, and he exceeded my expectations. It is absolutely stunning in the real world — the pictures don’t do my Special Blue Leather Bund justice.
I got my Bergeron spring bar tool and watch clamp out and began the installation process; and, wo-la — done!
My Vintage WWII Special Blue Leather Bund Dickson made just for me matches my wrist timepiece (reference 116710BLNR) two-tone ceramic bezel, and the leather is soft, comfortable, and durable. As you know, I like having things that no one else has nor can get. I like businesses making me one-offs.
The special blue stitching also matches the color of my wrist timepiece’s (reference 116710BLNR) two-tone ceramic bezel, and the buckle and pin are polished stainless steel.
Everything compliments each other, and my Special Blue Leather Bund creates a striking contrast to my wrist timepiece (reference 116710BLNR), highlighting my wrist timepiece’s characteristics of its polished and brushed stainless steel, polished two-tone ceramic bezel, the striking face, hands, and indices, and the sapphire crystal.
If you’re interested in a Vintage WWII Leather Bundesrepublik, check out ETERNITIZZZ, and ask for Dickson.
Tonight, 8-May-2021, I just ordered the Paul Newman-style black Vintage WWII Leather Bund for my other wrist timepiece (reference #116610LN Ceramic Bezel Model), which has an all-black ceramic bezel, shown below — do you see the all-black ceramic bezel?
Of course, I purchased it from ETERNITIZZZ, shown below.
I can’t wait to receive it; once I do, I will post pictures of it with my aforementioned other wrist timepiece (reference #116610LN Ceramic Bezel Model), shown above and shown below.
Presently, I use NATO straps, which matches the colors of all my adidas tennis shirts; so, I’m looking forward to getting the Paul Newman Alligator Leather Bund for my aforementioned other wrist timepiece (reference #116610LN Ceramic Bezel Model), shown supra and below.
This aforementioned other wrist timepiece (reference #116610LN Ceramic Bezel Model) will have access to two different leather Bunds: the Paul Newman Leather Bund, which, as I just mentioned, I ordered just now, and my 1960s/1970s Vintage Black Leather Bund, shown below, which has been modified by Daniel, Owner of Frank’s Shoe Repair in San Francisco, CA.
I really dig my new Vintage WWII Special Blue Leather Bundesrepublik, by ETERNITIZZZ.
Thank you, Dickson! Since mine is a one-off just for me, you can name it, Alfonso Faustino Azul Speciale. 😉 If you want to — just sayin’.
