Funnily enough I only just mentioned to someone via PM the other day about how we could do with a new project on here. :D

I've got to be honest, but I think that anything other than a watch (or maybe perhaps an office/home clock) would be a missed opportunity. It's been such a long time since we ran a project - 8 years in fact - that I just think that a custom strap or similar just wouldn't be a worthy enough project.

A humidor wouldn't be my thing I'm afraid as I'm not a smoker. A watch winder might be cool if we could get someone like Orbita, Rapport or Wolf, etc on board.... but then again I feel the utility we'd get for the price probably wouldn't be that great.

Personally, I love us to do another Steinhart! I've actually remained an avid follower of Steinhart ever since we did our first project here, and I've owned several over the years since, simply because they offer so much for such a decent price. As a daily driver they're hard to beat. In actual fact, I picked up a new one just a few weeks ago, and I have to say they have improved even more over the years. I had a close look at the dial under both my x5 and x10 loupes and the application of the markers and the printing on mine is absolutely flawless. And I mean genuinely flawless. Plus the ETA 2893 is running within COSC specs.......... and all for £450. They've also gained quite a following over the last 17 years, and our very own Mark II model has become one of the most desired LE's out there, partly because we secured such a low run number - just 20 pieces.

Anyway, I won't ramble on too much, but another Steinhart would be my choice by a country mile.
I'm on board for this. Sorry for the late notice.

Sorry, should say I'm on board for the Steinhart for sure. Other might take more consideration. I did smoke cigars. Have all the expensive paraphernalia minus a humidor but I don't smoke anymore.

Just putting this out there. My younger brother has a side business making custom Horween leather straps, watch rolls, wallets, etc. He has leather for days. I know projects have been much bigger than that in the past, but a custom cardovan strap would be nice to complement a watch--if the project ends up being a watch.

I'm up for a cordovan roll up as well as a Steinhart. True cordovan? We are all on the same page here? Meaning cordovan is a certain leather of a specific animal.

Breitling dealers have a nice leather folding case that holds different straps for when a customer asks, “Does it come on leather/rubber/etc.?” That might serve as a nice model. I’ll search for an example pic.

Edit: here is one on eBay: [url]https://www.ebay.com/itm/BREITLING-DEALER-JEWELER-FACTORY-SPIFF-SALES-AID-ACCESSORY-WATCH-STRAP-STORAGE-2-/232114673257[url]

Evening,
I would be interested if it turns out to be a watch.

Relatively new to the forum - seems like a great idea... I would be interested in most of the above.
