If you are looking for a way to customize your watch, a firehose strap is what you should go for! These straps are made from decommissioned firehose, which makes them a unique feature to add to your watch. Do you want a sturdy strap? Look no further, because this material went to hell and back and is still begging for more.
The creation of a firehose strap
When firehoses spring too many holes or are cut shorter for use in the fire line, they get decommissioned and used for other purposes. Zoos sometimes use them as a rope for gorillas, because a regular rope is not strong enough. This indicates how strong a firehose strap really is, which makes it perfectly suitable as a durable addition to your watch.
A watch strap with character
The character of firehoses after serving a lifetime of service adds to a great aesthetic of your watch. The red straps are cut and sewn in a way that still shows the scuffs, scars and tarring of intense use. Each pair of straps will therefore be different, but the straps that come in one pair are as closely matched as possible. The pictures show the extreme in color variation; a pair will be randomly picked when you order them through our online watch shop. You do get to choose between a strap of blue or red firehose; the blue hoses were used for potable water and have therefore seen less hazardous action.
Place your order and customize your watch
Are you interested in adding a firehose strap to your Aevig watch? Then place your order directly through our website. Please mind that the straps may initially be a little stiff. Bending them before use or leaving them curled up in a small cup overnight will help to form them around your wrist for comfortable wearing.
