    Where to buy Kaufmann watch straps?

    I would like to buy an alligator strap from Kaufmann but I cannot find a retailer that sells them. Are there other brands that stock elegant hand stitched alligator straps? For ABP and CF hand stitched is custom order only.

    Look at the sticky at the top of this forum. It has a list of on line strap vendors you can review for ideas.

    I can't find anyone that sells Kaufmann (apparently Wempe in NYC is a dealer). All the major brands seems to use an ugly machine stitch. RIOS 1931 Art manual seems to the only option for stock hand stitch.

    Check out the dealer map on their website. Bulk of the dealers appear to be in mainland Europe.

    I may have to email them and ask for what I am looking for...not worth it.

    I am just going to buy a RIOS Art Manual saddle stitch strap. They seem to be the only strap manufacturer with already made hand stitched straps.

    I bought a strap from mychrono on Chrono24.

    bought a Nomos from them and it went well, bought a strap later.

    wempe wanted $200 and mychrono was $115 all in.
