Although not directed at me--it depends on the style, how much you want to pay, etc.

Camille Fournet, ABP, and a craftsman I saw an article on recently, Hughes Handcrafted, all make excellent straps. I only have experience with the first two, but the latter I have heard good things about!

If you want some less expensive options, check out Hirsch. They make straps at various price-points.

I have been looking into getting a black face daytona with the zenith movement. Possibly the patrizzi dial. Any recommendations?

im not stitch, but ABP in paris makes the best custom gator straps for dress. ifyou want something more rugged for a larger watch (ie Panerai) Simona does some great gator and croc straps.
