    Looking for a brown alligator strap for IWC Mark XVI

    Hi all. I just purchased an IWC Mark XVI, which comes with a very nice black alligator strap with IWC-engraved stainless buckle. I'm looking for a similar strap in medium brown and could go with one from IWC. But the price would be close to $300 and I'm wondering if there is anything that is equally nice for less. One thing I like about the IWC strap, by the way, is that it's slightly raised in the middle, rather than flat.

    Thanks.
    John

    Freda Watch Straps can order you a custom Hadley Roma alligator strap. I got one thru them (6 weeks wait) and I was pretty happy with the quality and price.

    The Watch Boys in Toronto, they do straps in the style of IWC for about one quarter of the price.

    Hello John,
    I too was looking for the same strap a number of months ago to go on an MKII "Kingston". I wanted an attractive alligator strap without having to pay the typical $300+ price for one. I got the exact strap I was looking for at 1/3 that price: "Blackstone Valley" model (slightly padded like you say) from Freda Straps.

    Good luck with your search,
    heb
