I love my Montblanc, but I wasn't in love with the band it came with. It was very thick and I sweat too much wearing it. So, the hunt began for a replacment band. The size wasn't an issue, but the Montblanc Buckle was more Panerai like and getting the right size with the openings to fit the buckle was a challenge. I looked at Hirsch, Hadley Roma and many others. I then landed on Forum Sponsor Panotime and they had just what I was looking for. But, I was skepticle. How could anyone sell real Louisiana Alligator bands for $99? Everywhere you look, they start much higher. So, I called them and asked and they assured me they were the equal to much more expensive bands and they were extremely helpful in ensuring I was getting the right band for my watch.
That was yesterday. Today it came and I must admit I was a bit fearful opening the package. I shouldn't have been. The band is EVERYTHING they promised. It's beautiful. Well made. The color was exactly as promised. The band looked exactly like the picture online. I couldn't more happy with the band and now I know I've been overpaying for watch bands elsewhere. Sorry if this sounds like a promotion for Panotime. I'm just that happy.
Now some pictures:
