Coming up: Vintage sun tanned leather watch strap

I'm working on a new leather watch strap using a piece of veg tanned leather shoulder as a base. The basic characteristic of this leather is that it's full of scars and marks which will add a lot of character to the end result. I really love it!

I have already treated it with neatsfoot oil and some conditioners based on wax. I will leave it in natural color and not dye it at all, since it already got a cool light brown color. I think I will do minimal stitching on this. Here are some sneak peaks!
