edit: Upon further research, it actually seems that a couple hundred for a rubber strap (mainly OEM replacement) is not uncommon. My bad. Nonetheless, in my opinion, I do not believe a rubber strap should cost upwards of $200. Max I would pay would be $50-$75.

I recently got an Omega watch, and wanted desperate to get the OEM rubber strap. The actual strap was $256 and the deployment buckle was an extra $256. So over $500 total. I got a great deal on the watch itself through a gray dealer and saved a ton on the watch itself so I pulled the trigger on the strap.

 

The buckle you can use on any strap on any omega watch which I guess is cool, but clearly super overpriced.

I think what omega charges for straps is absurd too, but I still paid $$$ for a leather rally strap with an omega deployment clasp because omega was the only brand that makes that strap specifically for my Speedy, and I love it.
Although, having handled an omega nato strap I wouldn't shell out what they ask because it's not worth it. I can get a very similar strap for a fraction of the price.

That said, OEM vs a 3rd party i've never heard of isn't an apples to apples comparison, and when you can get a german made Eulit perlon strap for less than $20 (and eastern made ones for under 10), yeah, I think $30 for a nylon strap from a company I've never heard of is nuts.

as a penance for my thread derailment Leffot is at 50% off sale, although it's pretty picked over at this point.

Mr. Porter usually adds old season stock in a big batch in the last day of sales? Is there any kind of timeslot to pay attention to in particular?

The US Sale is over and the EU sale ends today so... now?

EU ends tomorrow. I wonder if there's a big restock at some point tomorrow.

Not to get too granular with a Sales Alert, but Barney's Warehouse has a Battistoni tux for $650 in multiple sizes and return-able.  Looks like a pretty classic cut, but well worth a look if anyone is in the market or getting an early start on New Year's Eve.

I needed to put back an extra link in a stainless steel band for a Baume & Mercier.  I knew I hadn't thrown it out, but I couldn't find it.  Replacement was over $70, so I lost weight.  In the back of my mind I almost hope I don't find it. Why risk temptation.
