    Alligator straps made in Europe?

    Hello, could anyone recommend a particularly excellent maker of alligator straps in Europe? Of course, I want the finest quality but at a cheap price (don’t we all). I’m not rich, yet I want exceptional quality. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Gerard Bouvret might suit your budget, avoid Hirsh and Sirtoli poor quality over the long run

    Thanks for the suggestion. Those look great but are a little more than I was hoping to spend. Do you know if it’s possible to get say 95% of the excellence for 60% of the price?

    Go with a Hirsch, they are excellent quality and come with a one year warranty. If you want to wear your watch in Summer, then take a look at Hirsch's Paul line of straps.

    Sounds like our friend from Croissy sur Seine is trying to push French products, rather than Austrian ones.

    If you want peace of mind and able to use in the hot summer months ahead, hopefully, take a look at the Hirsch Ian, backed with a 30 month Warranty
