    I know you like the strap, but would you recommend it? I am looking at a strap for my Speedy, but I was just wondering if you thought that $140.00 was fair for the quality that you are receiving. I think the natural would look really cool with the Speedy.

    It was a gift, so it has a bit of a special place in my heart now, so I am definitely biased. :) That being said, I think they are probably a bit overpriced (I mean... 4 straps = 1 pair of shoes at this rate, right? :lol: ) but the quality is there. And the Horween stamp is worth at least $20, right?

    Come on man, you know this isn't even close to true.



    Yeah, I know it's mind boggling. Don't worry, not long till you're ordering 200 euro custom watch straps and thinking to yourself - what a bargain! It's all downhill from here on, heh. :devil:

    Don't the manufacturers themselves charge a lot more than 200 euro for an alligator strap? It's been years, but the last one I got from IWC was something like $400. Ludicrous. I'm using an ABP one now. Half the price, but probably about half the quality, too.

    :fu: you're probably right... I am looking at a custom option for my H. Moser & Cie as we speak. No luck finding someone who can make/find me an open end genuine tan/honey gator strap.

    I know. I assumed it was an obvious exaggeration.

    and referring to straps...its a VERY slippery slope. I remember adding up the 20-30 straps i had in a box for my panerais and realizing i could EASILY sell them all and fund a whole watch. :embar:

    Why not Camille Fournet? Do not have the variety of ABP, but I heard the quality is a little better.
