    Crocodile strap suggestion

    I am going to purchase a stowa antea creme and really like the crocostrap that stowa offers but they will not ship to US without adding an additional $50 bringing the cost to almost $200 for the strap. It looks so good that it is still tempting but I was seeing if anyone knew of a cheaper alternative. Here is a pic of the strap

    Any ideas?

    Not Genuine Alligator but Leather with a Gator Grain, this is a Hirsch Grand Duke, well under budget and waterproof too as an added bonus, available in 20mm

    IMHO, the finest croc and gator straps are made by Sirtoli. Google Sirtoli and you will find their website. They ship from within the US. Although they are fairly expensive, around $200 with a tang buckle, they are as nice as any strap you will find anywhere.

    TWB of Canada sells an IWC-style gator strap. I think I have this exact strap in a 20mm size. Bought it for another watch that I've since sold. PM me for details.

    EDIT: I just noticed you're also in VA. If you're close enough, we could meet up and you could try the strap out. It's very dark brown, almost black.

    Picture is TWB's

    Thanks for the offer carman, but I live on the other side of the state. That strap is the closest I have seen, and I should have waited until the watch got here, but I ordered the freda strap.

    Here are the nicest croc straps I’ve ever seen, pretty damn expensive as well. Ted Su’s big hornback croc straps. I'll be saving up for a while.
