    $100 Alligator or crocodile strap for Visodate

    I am considering purchasing a crocodile or alligator strap for my Tissot Visodate. I would like to spend approximately $100 (I am reluctant to spend more given the price of the watch). I would welcome input re: whether I can find a quality strap for $100; if there are reliable dealers on the internet where one could be purchased; and thoughts on the relative merits of the two materials (again at that price).

    Thank you

    Thank you -- any thoughts on the quality obtainable for $100 or the comparable merits of the two materials at that price?

    You can get a surprisingly nice gator on eBay from Vietnam for around 30 bucks!

    Either material will be durable. Just go for a strap that catches your eye from a known brand and enjoy. If buying from a source outside your country be sure the seller includes any needed CITES documentation.

    I've enjoyed well made straps from Rios1931 for several years. I believe they have straps around your price range.

    Look at the sticky in the "Straps and Bracelets" sub forum.

    It lists a number of strap vendors you can review.

    Thank you for all the input - I’ve selected a mahogany alligator from Rios1931. It’s on backorder and I am eager to see how it looks live.

    I have several of the Barton brand alligator textured cowhide and really really like them. They are $29. Don't know if you have your heart set on real dead reptile, or just the fancy look of gator/croc. I wear mine on a Timex Marlin Auto, and a Seiko SARX white enamel dial.
