I'm thinking of purchasing a Cartier Tank Solo XL with a metal bracelet, and changing that to a custom strap + deployant from Hirsch or one of the other recommended third-party strap makers. I'm not inclined to purchase the watch with the leather strap from Cartier because I don't like the leather that it comes with.
I've never changed the strap of a watch before, and certainly not the strap of a Cartier Tank. Does anyone have any experience with doing so? Are there any particular tools / strap makers I should be aware of for this task?
Many thanks in advance.
