    Find a very glossy black strap - How hard can it be

    I got my wife a vintage watch by Edele. It is a very tiny watch.
    The watch has a super glossy black lacquered strap. Not padded. But it's broken.
    Well, she insists on such same strap.
    I have been googling all day: no result. I also tried the sticky topic addresses.

    Can you help me find a strap:
    10mm
    Ultra glossy black (slightly crocy/cayman)
    Not padded but totally flat.
    Silver colored buckle prefered.
    Normal prices please: genuine luxury materials are not needed.

    There's a list of online sellers in this forum. One of those with smaller straps is watchbandcenter.com, but there are others, too. If you see lizard or croc, more often than not, they are shiny.

    Panatime.com has some very high gloss aligator straps as another suggestion.

    Just a tip for you. When you find one, don't put leather conditioner on it. That will remove 50% of the gloss and you can try all kinds of products, but the shine won't come back.
