Default FYI on a cool way to use old mitts

My wife gave me a great present last year of a watch strap of my favorite PC player because she's honestly pretty great for supporting my madness, lol.

I get a ton of people asking about it, so I thought I would just put the company out there if anyone is interested.

I do not know the owner personally but we did get great service and the strap is aging really well. They create watch straps from vintage mitts and make them to your liking or you can pick from the selection they have. They have also used footballs, basketballs, boxing gloves or I guess anything made of leather will work for a strap.

I again do not have a stake in this fellas business, but I thought some other members might think this was neat too.

That's pretty cool. I haven't worn a watch in years, but I dig it.

I just saw recently that MLB is selling a similar item except it is a game used ball in the face of the watch.

If they could combine these to innovative ideas that would be amazing.
