    Water resistant croc/alligator strap?

    Hi guys!

    Is there such a thing as a genuine croc/alligator strap with some form of water tolerance?.
    I have seen a few water resistant calf straps but i dont recall seeing any croc/gator strap with such properties.
    If you've seen such a thing let me know please 😁

    I think that it's all about the lining. Here's some from Di-Modell

    The only one that comes to mind is the Hirsch Viscount. It's $300+.

    JeanRichard actually makes a "Rubber Gator" strap. They claim even though it is made of rubber it has the actual look and feel of being genuine alligator ...

    I think the best you will find is a faux exotic with some rubber components as most natural skin exotics in watch band form just don't tolerate moisture well in my experience.

    I have heard good things about the JR strap so it might be worth a look.

    I know it's not croc or alligator, but yes there are some waterproof shark straps out there. I've got a Hirsch shark strap that is water resistant to 100m I think.

    I'm going to try the Di-Modell strap. I am not going to dive with it but in my profession I wash my hands a lot therefore I usually buy my watches on bracelets.
    I have a chrono that is just too freaking heavy on bracelet therefore the quest for a water resistant croc strap.

    I wonder if these lined Di-Modell straps, including the Chronissimo, are more resistant to turning sweaty wrists into an unpleasant smell.
