New Kaktus straps contemporary line

Kaktus straps - well known for their vintage styled Panerai straps - recently introduced a completely new line of contemporary straps to "dress up" your Panerai watch. The new line uses exotic skins like alligator and ostrich. The line also includes nubuck straps in different colors.

By collaborating with some of the most skillful craftsmen in the business Tomas (owner of Kaktus straps) has created a very nice new collection. Only the highest quality alligator, ostrich and nubuck skins are used. The straps are available in 26 or 24mm widths and most of the straps taper down to 22mm for a more classy look. The straps come with a brushed or polished Kaktus buckle or deployant, but the original Panerai tang buckle will of course fit as well. The buckles have a Kaktus signature engraving which is done by a Swiss company that works for many high end watch manufacturers.

Tomas asked me to take some pictures of the new line for his website. The idea was to shoot pictures in a slightly different, more contemporary style. This entry shows a small selection of the photos and straps. You can view a gallery with all 66 photos of the new Kaktus straps here on
