Making It Possible, Mission Possible.Admin Gunnystraps
How it started.
Bringing back to 10-20 years ago, where vintage strap (some called ammo straps) was a hot trend but also a problem. people would hunt for a authentic decade years old strap. The problem was that a very old strap would be unsatisfying in some aspects besides the beautiful vintage of the strap. We don’t know where it has been, it might carry fungus, bacteria, it is dirty, so could bring some kind of skin disease, but it is indeed beautiful.
Until in 2009, A gentleman gave us an incomplete, 6 decade old, strap he got from auction, where it is missing it’s 12 o’clock side, and requested that we try to recreate the other side for his Panerai. Minutes, hours, days, weeks, months, with plenty of trials and errors until We perfectly nailed, to create an artificial vintage strap from a fresh brand new leather, matching the 6 o’clock side from our customer. This has been the answer to peoples problem, where a beautiful vintage strap are now enjoyable in all aspects as well. This strap was thought to be impossible, which inspires the name… The Mission Impossible series.
|The original 6 o’clock side||The 12 o’clock side we created|
What’s with this.
You see, The mission impossible series was invented 12-13 years ago, and it was design to fit Panerai and other big watches , it is even a year older than the first iPhone 4. Now what are the problem with iPhone 4? It is old, it doesn’t fit in today’s trend and it doesn’t function as much. The same problem was experienced with a lot of our loyal customers, by a lot, We mean tons and TONS of suggestion was given to us, to do something with their beloved, legendary series.
Wore and from the side, visible thickness
