Wow ! Very nice work. What exactly is scrimshaw ? Is it like engraving ? Also, who's straps are those on the watches ? The look really nice.
Yes. Scrimshaw is similar to engraving. I create the image by poking thousands of tiny holes in the ivory and rubbing black paint into the holes. The watch maker has the straps made for the watches. I don't know who actually makes them.
