    Really Pleased: New Panotime Band For My Montblanc Star GMT Chrono

    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:

    I have a number of their straps including a number of alligator and other exotics, and you can't beat their quality for the price.

    They have excellent straps and outstanding customer service, so you chose wisely. Enjoy!

    Congrats!!! It looks great, I just ordered 3 new straps and a strap changing tool from panatime 2 days ago. They really do have great prices, my full order cost about as much as one similar strap from most of the independent strap makers. I can't wait, I'll try and remember to post pics of the new straps in this thread when they arrive.

    2 of them are the same as you can see but they are different sizes(22mm and 24mm). I'm pretty happy with the quality, especially for the price.

    Re: Really Pleased: New Panotime Band For My Montblanc Star GMT Chrono

    Back in February I was in New York and had read somewhere that Panatime had a showroom in Manhattan. I emailed ahead of time and although they no longer maintained a storefront, they invited me to visit their offices in Tuckahoe. I went out there one morning, 30 minutes away from the city via a Metro North train, and how graciously I was treated. I had a several week old Panerai 425 and didn't really know exactly what I wanted so as we talked, they kept bringing different things out to look at. I ended up buying 3 straps that day and they helped me put one of them on in the shop. Not only that, they treated me to discount on the total and threw in a couple of tool items I might need down the road. I have since bought from them several more times, always pleased. Here's the newest from them I got just last week for my new Kaventsmann, vintage look "rough" leather with green stitching.

    I put one of the black and white straps on my breitling super avenger. Here's a couple pics.
