    Calf vs alligator watch strap lining

    I've had plenty of straps lined in calf, pigskin, or nubuck and all seemed fine. I now face the very first world dilemma of choosing between calf or alligator lining on my next strap for an 18k Cartier tank. Does anyone have experience with alligator lining on straps? I know these straps came on a few watches by Chopard and Philippe Dufour.

    Re: Calf vs alligator watch strap lining

    It's a beautiful and exotic lining leather that I've seen used on a few exotic straps. I assume they're using the smaller rounded scales from the flank for the lining. Should be soft, durable, and takes a custom strap up a notch in luxury.

    I haven't worn a strap with alligator lining, but Dangerous9 uses it along with other exotics like eel and teju as a liner and haven't seen anything but praise for those.

    Good luck choosing and post a pic once you get it!

    Best,
    Christopher
