THERE ARE NOTCHES IN THE THIN LEATHER STRAP
THEY ALLOW THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE WATCH LUGS

THE LAST HOLE IS THE 71/4 INCH SIZE.

IMG_6282.JPG (135150 bytes)

THE NOTCHES WERE ALREADY IN THE STRAP
ROCK USED A 10000 RPM FLEX SHAFT WITH
WOOL WHEELS SOAKED IN NEATSFOOT
TO SOFTEN THEM UP
HENCE THE JAGGEDNESS.
TO TRIM THEM  UP RISKS DAMAGE.
THEY SHOULD EVENTUALLY "WEAR-DISAPPEAR"
