^ Camille Fournet is an OEM supplier for several serious brands, including Cartier. I've been very pleased with mine, and they're a pleasure to deal with in my experience. This will give you a price for whatever configuration you like: http://www.camillefournet.com/en/create-your-watch-strap
Something different today: a watch swap with an office buddy. A different kind of blue and denim (plus chambray and wool): Personally, I'm diggin' the old-school Jubilee bracelet on the modern GMT.
