My wife has an old cartier watch and she wants to replace the strap with a new burgundy or navy colored crocodile strap. I've gone to half a dozen local watch repair stores (including Cartier) but I'm getting the run around and no one seems to have these in stock (especially in the color she wants). I got a hold of Cartier's repair shop in Texas but they want me to mail them the watch to even give me an estimate, which I'm not too excited about.
As you can see, the straps are wider at the lugs then where they attach to the clasp, and one strap is approximately 65mm long while the other is about 60mm. Here are some picks:
Does anyone know where I might be able to find these strap in LA? Southern CA?
