I am looking to spend between 200-300 dollars on a high quality calf/alligator (brown) strap for my vintage rolex 1500 date. I am trying to find some companies that are known for their higher end straps and I am not coming up with many. Seems that everything in this space is trying to do it the cheapest.. but I am looking to pay for something quality. So far I have been looking at the Hodinkee store, Jean Rousseau, and Hirsch. I would like to know the opinions of these 3, especially hirsch, but i also would like to know if there are any other websites/brands that produce high quality straps for me to look at.
Anyone have a recommendation? Or an opinion on the hirsch straps that are in the ~250$ range or the hodinkee branded straps?
Thank you very much in advance.
