Another picture of my JLC Grande GMT, this time on a black buffalo with contrasted stitching.




Someone in this thread mentioned that he was getting a bit tired of croc / alligator straps. I would highly recommend a good quality buffalo as a sportier alternative. It's a fraction of the cost, extremely sturdy, and looks good too.

I agree regarding the hands... are they simply pulled form the 36mm model?

Where does one buy a strap like this?

Thanks! I've only recently discovered them and have enjoyed them on a few of my watches.

Any suggestions where to get such straps in NY?

I had this one custom made at Atelier Jean-Rousseau in Paris.

http://www.jean-rousseau.com/jeanrousseau_us.html

Their work is of very good quality, and they are a bit easier on the wallet than Atelier du Bracelet Parisien. They don't have the incredible variety of leathers of the ABP, but the selection they have is nice.

Playing around with a friend's Seadweller. Any SD love here?
