    It's been awhile, OEM, think 300 USD.

    Honestly, you have the clasp which is the jewel of the strap, I'd go aftermarket and only you will know.

    Is it breaking? In the pic it just looks like it's showing wear.

    But, yeah, there are plenty of aftermarket options that are very nice quality. Those are something like $250 straight from Tag.

    I'm back.........................

    As much as I like my Tag watches I am more than a wee bit put off by the high cost of replacement straps. I took the stretch and ordered a 'genuine Crocodile' from the eBay seller out of Viet Nam, I am totally pleased with the strap seen here after 2 month wear.





    I'm aware that the photos could be better but you have my word the straps are a bargain. I had one made in blue for another watch also. Both for 88.00 delivered. They were made long so took a while and cost a few dollars more. Frankly I need to say I am miffed at the fact that I have worn a truly great belt sized 36" X 1 1/4" around my waist for over 20 years. It is a Filson and although not fancy it is the best belt I ever owned longevity wise, it cost 39 dollars back then. The idea that a watch strap which will be due for replacement in a year if I use it often should cost 250 to 300 irks me. I buy expensive items frequently but I do not like to feel taken advantage of. My advice, check the guy out, you can get a size 36 Croc belt for under a hundred and yes there are croc's in Asia :)

    Grab the occasion and get yourself a custom made strap.
    Plenty of craftsmen online, costing less than OEM.

    "wholesaleoutlet990" on Ebay sells a lot of straps for the various TH models for around 40-50 bucks, I've been impressed with the quality of the ones I've gotten from them. They offer a generic TH clone clasp, as well as straps without, given that you've got the original clasp, I'd look that way.

    Both straps are showing cracks, but I think they've served me well. 2 years of use as my daily driver in a tropical country.

    I might go aftermarket, $300 for a strap is ridiculous!

    Well, that's pretty much every higher-end watch brand -- it's not like Tag is charging more than the rest. Considering the enormous selection when it comes to watch straps (including ones for Tag deployants), certainly no one is forced to buy the OEM options. And in fact, the markup over genuine alligator straps from the major third-party makers isn't very much. You can easily spend $200+ on a nice strap from Hadley-Roma, for example.
