FACT: I love exotic leathers on my wrist.
Gator, yes please. Ostrich, Yup! Shark skin, bring it on. If they made a platypus band and it looked good, I'd be all over it. I don't know if these forums have awakened a touch of watch snob in me or that I feel that a watch that's off the beaten path deserves a strap an equal measure of being different but I know this, I love nice leather bands and if the animal was obscure, it gets extra points.
Am I alone in this one?
P.S. Gun holster leather, old baseball gloves and other unique leathers might not have come from an obscure animal but they get the points still for being exotic in their own right. Keep that in mind in the poll.
