    alligator (honey, tan, light brown) similar to IWC / Cartier in the $100 range?

    I'm looking for an alligator strap in a lighter shade (honey, tan, light brown, chestnut, cognac) to wear on an IWC Portuguese (3714) and also a cartier tank with white dial. Similar to this:Name:  IMG_4468 (1).jpg

    To buy new I am looking at $350 and up. Sellers on ebay seem to not be much cheaper.

    I've tried ordering these straps from makers in Vietnam and they cannot seem to get the color right. The few I have ordered come out way too orange / red. I am looking for one that is more brown than red / orange.

    Any recommendations?

    Hirsch does honey coloured alligator straps. Look at their, Voyager, Earl, London, and Navigator straps for example. Prices between 230-300.

    Picture of their London strap (pic not mine)

    Edit: Based on your picture that strap looks more like a gold brown. Hirsch also carries that.

    Check with peter at @peter.watchacc on IG. Most of his gator watches are less than $200 and beautifully made.

    In Canada, check with Aaron at Combat Straps - top notch straps ... easy to work with and great turnaround time.

    Rios1931 has German made alligator straps ranging from $100 to $240. They make one specifically for IWC watches but it is a pilot style. The link is for the generic styles.

    I have several Rios straps (none alligator) and they are superb, especially the shell cordovan straps. If you have a large wrist (+7.5" or so) they may be a bit short. They fit my 7.25" wrist perfectly.
