    For those with experience with alligator straps, assuming daily wear, how long can one reasonably expect a strap to last before replacement?

    there is no real answer to that imo. it depends on how much you sweat/do things that would make you sweat while wearing the watch, and the quality of the leather. not all straps are created equal.
