Dodo Leather Handmade Watch Straps Review

I’ve recently reviewed a Ukrainian Dodo strap for Panerai watches on Paneraisource, but I also picked up a couple of their general straps for use on all sorts of other watches that don’t necessary follow the Panerai style. These straps are more cost effective and use much simpler assembly techniques and follow the trend of […]

Dassari Bell & Ross Cayenne Saffiano Black with White Stitch Review

Dassari has been making mid-priced straps for some time, and is quite known among watch buyers.
