    New Jabba Strap for the 02

    My first order of business when getting my 02 Carbon Fiber was to contact Cristian of Jabba Straps after seeing the custom "swan series" grey color 02 straps he made for others on BR-AVO. I wanted something in black and he had exactly what I was looking for. It took a while to get here since he had a long queue but it was worth the wait.

    Here's the top and bottom of the strap unmounted. Great texture to the leather a bit glossy and a bit distressed at the same time.




    The profile of the strap is what makes it so great. The thick padding of the at the lugs matches the OEM rubber almost perfectly. Where other aftermarket straps might leave a gap at the thick lugs, this guy fits perfectly.



    Here's some wrist shots:




    And a side by side with the OEM black heritage:


    Don't hesitate to grab one of these straps if you're looking to dress up your 02 a bit. The quality is top notch and the price at ~$125 is such a deal for a custom strap.

    Cheers,
    Sean

    Congratulations on your new Jabba strap it looks fantastic.

    I think his prices considering the amount of work are excellent.

    Here is my Jabba I had made a while ago for my 02:

    The black swan is definitely on my list now as well. Would go perfect with the carbon fiber dial.

    My Jabba in my link above has considerably darkened further since I posted my photos.

    With mine behaving the burnishing treatment it was much darker than the original ‘black swan’ and the strap seems to have self burnished since somehow or perhaps darkened with general wear. Therefore has lost its blue/grey hue and appears black to me. Which is good as it matches my PVD much better.

    Nice, clean and simple. Padding looks like a perfect match as well.

    In anything at all, perfection is finally attained not when there is no longer anything to add, but when there is no longer anything to take away.
