That flyback is pretty much perfect.

I'm thinking of a black or brown alligator strap, relatively thin and sleek. It's a black face so I'm not sure if the brown would clash? I thought alligator would be nice, but do you think some other kind of material or style would be better? 3. I ideally would like to keep my TAG deployment buckle, so does that mean I need a strap with square ends on both sides? Is that called an "open ended" strap or is there some technical name for it I can use to search?
1) There are tons of good strap makers and sellers. I like the DiModell Louisiana Alligator that I got from mywatchmaker.net. If you look Bob up on TZ he offers good discounts for members. 2) I like honey brown with black. Its a sharp contrast you don't see often. 3) As long as the new strap has the same width at the end as your Tag strap does you'll be able to use the deployant. Most straps come with lug and tip measurements.

I'm loving the new Patek 5205 (pic credits: watchprosite.com). The white seconds hand bugs me though.

+1. The grey kills it in the pics.

That new Patek looks too much like an Omega DeVille. IMO, the Omega actually looks better though.

That's mostly, but not entirely true. He's got to consider thickness as well as width. The band has to taper down enough at the end - too thick and it won't thread through the deployant buckle.

True, but outside of those massive Panerai custom jobs, I've never actually seen a strap too thick to make it through a deployant end.
