I'm getting mine shipped without the band since they can't ship croc through customs. I've been thinking about putting a navy croc on it to alternate with the mahogany croc I already picked up.

I agree, I'm not a fan of the OEM napa leather band. May I ask where you purchased your navy gator band?

check the sales forum at watchzone. seller fredaswatchstraps has a good assortment.

The whole not being able to import exotic skins is a PIA. I was in a paris a few months back and wanted to have a few custom straps made at ABP but didn't see the store until the end of my trip and couldnt have them mailed to the states. bummer

Any recommendations on a Gator/Croc grained leather band?





Nice one! For strap check out Sirtoli.com some really nice Gator there.

Omega identifies it as the "Tresor". It's from 1949 and has the 265 calibre movement.
