If you need your leather and/or suede items cleaned or repaired; or, if you have an leather project you would like to have designed and effectuated, check out Daniel at Frank’s Shoe Repair in San Francisco, CA.

Daniel, not only cleans and repairs leather and suede items, but he is also an expert leather craftsman; and, he made modifications to my 1960/1970s Vintage Wristwatch Leather Cuffs (Bundesrepublik (Bunds)).

I surrendered my three 1960/1970’s Wristwatch Leather Cuffs for Daniel.

I wanted him to remove the snaps, which came with the three 1960/1970’s Wristwatch Leather Cuffs (Bunds).

The snaps, with little pressure, can easily come undone, thus releasing my wrist timepiece off the leather cuff and onto the ground. I was always worried that I would lose my wrist timepieces when wearing my 1960/1970s Vintage Wristwatch Leather Cuffs (Bundesrepublik (Bunds)).

So, I spoke to Daniel, and he recommended removing those snaps from my 1960/1970’s Wristwatch Leather Cuffs and replacing those snaps with screw-down rivets.

Excellent solution!

In normal circumstances, the only way the leather straps, holding my wrist timepiece to the 1960/1970’s Wristwatch Leather Cuffs (Bunds), would come undone is by use of a screwdriver.

Now, I can freely move my wrist in any direction, with reasonable exertion to any direction, while running, walking, reaching in my pockets or backpacks, and not worry about the straps, holding my wrist timepieces to my 1960/1970’s Wristwatch Leather Cuffs (Bunds), coming undone.

Sure, it takes extra time to screw in and screw out my wrist timepieces to and from my leather cuffs (bunds), but it’s well worth the safety and prevention of my wrist timepiece falling to the ground.

I also like the rivet-look to my leather cuffs (bunds).

I’m truly grateful to have serendipitously find Daniel, owner of Frank’s Shoe Repair in San Francisco, CA, on my way to the UPS drop-off one sunny day after a game of tennis with my buddies.

I’m so happy with Daniel’s work with my 1960/1970s Vintage Wristwatch Leather Cuffs (Bundesrepublik (Bunds)).

A blast from my 1974 past! My Seiko Pogue united with my 1960/1970s Vintage Wristwatch Leather Cuff (Bund), which is similar to the leather cuff (Bund) I had when I was 10 years old in 1974. Seeing and feeling my Seiko Pogue with this leather cuff (Bund) brings back so many wonderful memories of my childhood with this Seiko Pogue and leather cuff (Bund). I’m so happy!

Of course, he also does excellent work with all my leather shoes, my suede jackets, and leather jackets.

If you’re looking for a great leather-smith, give Daniel, Owner of Frank’s Shoe Repair in San Francisco, CA, a ring. You won’t be disappointed.
