I'm about to purchase my first luxury watch. One of the watches I'm considering is the Vacheron Constantin Fiftysix self-winding (see attachment). I am also considering a similarly styled JLC MUT. These are both dress watches with black leather straps.
My question: If I don't want to keep paying lots of money every 1-2 years for a replacement leather strap, what are my options? I would like a nice rubber strap, for example. Who makes the best rubber straps? Who makes the best bracelets?
