Looking for a nice blue crocodile strap for my Breguet Marine 5817BA/12/9V8 (or maybe other colours too...)

I am based in Europe.

Any ideas where to look for one?

Thanks.

Panatime has some nice Rios Alligator ones, I got one of them as well for my IWC Ingy laureus. They are a bit stiff at first but very nice and comfy after some wearing.

I would also advise to take a look at the straps made by Peterwatchacc, they are great as well and of the best.

Today, Patek 3919 and Montblanc Voltaire. The Voltaire was the 1995 edition of the Writers Series.

Also check out jacobstraps (spain) and ABP Paris (france). Imo jacobstraps is top notch, especially exotic leathers. Fair pricing as well. He is my go to guy for AP ROO straps, honestly even better than OEM...

Enjoying a new Horween CXL strap. Plump and buttery soft.

+1 to both of these recommendations.

I've personally had good experience with Panatime.



And speaking of straps: mimo, where'd you get that beauty that you're wearing on your Stowa pilot? That's not OEM is it?

My newest TickTocking review video is up. How about a Patek 5074R Minute Repeater Perpetual Calendar ;)

 

post #39848 of 48312

Nice video!  I like the way they almost slip the minute repeater into that one without any hoopla.

Well with the action in CHF/USD today it might be worth buying a couple of pateks just for the arb opportunity

For those who own the Speedy, is 20/18 the best size for a leather strap? Looking to pick up a croc strap but not sure between 20/18 or 20/16.
post #39852 of 48312
20/18.
post #39853 of 48312
The speedy buckle is 18.
post #39854 of 48312

DLjr--That strap looks fantastic.  What padding profile and thickness did you ask for? 

post #39855 of 48312
Flat and 2.5mm (same as Nomos stock cordovan straps) and I did waxed edges per a rec from Newcomer.
