    High end calf/alligator strap recommendations?

    Hey all,

    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.

    High end calf/alligator strap recommendations?

    If I was going to spend $200-300 on a strap, I’d definitely go custom. In this price range I only have experience with Gunnystraps and Aaron from Combatstraps, and I recommend them.

    This is the way to go if you want a true luxury strap.

    Camille Fournet is the strapmaker for some of the finest OEM straps, and you can specify your exact preferences in most cases for custom builds. They also have dealers if you'd prefer to make use of their knowledge for guidance, etc. I found the custom order process on the CF website to be a little unclear for one or two details . If I recall correctly, forum sponsor Freda is a dealer.

    ABP Paris is also very nice, they offer more material choices and customization than CF although they are priced a little bit more from what I remember. Check out their special tanning alligator.

    ABP can be difficult to communicate with.

    Try Mr. Hanz (shown below on my Rolex). If you want the best of the best look up John Glance of "Dangerous9 straps" but be prepared to push up your budget a little, especially if yo uget into exotic lining leathers and such (lizard shown below on my Enzo Mechana).

    Is Jeremy still making straps? Last time I tried to get a hold of him I didn't get a response. He has made a few of my absolute favorites and his prices were downright reasonable and his work exquisite.
