Changeable parts are great for customization -- just look at high-end bicycles, for which there are thousands of components that will help it reach the perfect balance for your needs/price of a car. Breath some new life into your standby watch with a custom band from Bas & Lokes. From two dudes in Sydney with a passion for "strapmaking", B&L hand-makes rugged leather bands that're "highly unique and stand out from the crowd", each designed to pair with Omega's, Breitlings, Panerai's, and other "larger" models, so...Mia Tyler? The recent Summer drop's highlighted by the Militaire, made from chocolate brown textured brushed leather and distressed to induce a subtle black marbling; the dark black Sergeant, decoratively stitched along the edges and down the center with olive green thread; and a furry, medium tan pure suede piece called the Exeter, which is perfect for anyone without enough of their parents money to buy the Lawrenceville model. Those perusing classic stock'll find everything from a waxy brown joint cut to two widths (referred to as "sexy curves") to a bumpy swath of walnut-colored buffalo leather, but no matter your choice the final result's customizable via options like stitching color, width/length, and number of holes, which unlike in real life has nothing to do with width/length. To cap it off, you can opt to dud your new strap with either a shiny polished or brushed metal version of one of two buckle styles: the traditional spring bar-loaded Thumbnail, and the blocky, angular Pre-V screw job, which you'll realize is what you got when you're in 17th gear getting passed by a Passat.
