    Thanks a lot guys--I have not showed this JLC much love in the last half a year or so, but I think it is time to bring it back to the front lines.

    Most days just my Speedy Pro. Unfortunately, all of my croc bands are just too large--I have to downsize to a short. And I just have not really wanted to fork out $300 for a new croc strap from CF.

    Beats shelling out $400-$600 from JLC! :)

    My Speedy was my first watch and I still love it to death but the JLC works much better with tailored clothing, IMO.

    Where were you planning to get the strap for speedy from? I need to get a black croc strap for my speedy, Omega straps are around $600 with a deployment clasp, would prefer something cheaper.

    Thanks Betel, I do love my Speedy. It is just so wearable, especially on a strap.


    No ish. Those prices are obscene.


    I adore my Speedy. I would recommend one to anybody. A great first watch.


    Well, I am getting the strap for the JLC, but in the past I have used Camille Fournet, and have left very impressed.

    And thats just for the leather, no buckle. When I replaced my JLC strap I paid $355 and that was straight dealer cost. But, to be fair, it was an exceptionally beautiful strap and I did not regret it at all.

    I don't doubt its beauty at all! I do believe, however, that CF makes straps for JLC, but in my experience, the JLC-branded straps are nicer.

    And I thought it was obscene when Cartier charged me $300 for a caiman strap for my little Must de Cartier from the 1980's - yikes!
