    Recommend me a band for my Timewalker

    Hi,

    The 2nd leather band on my Timewalker has unglued itself once again so I can't wear it (actually I haven't been wearing it for over 6 months). And I don't want to buy another genuine one.



    Can someone recommend me a watch band, leather or otherwise that you think is durable and looks good. I know it's a 22mm band.

    I have pretty small wrists too, if that makes a difference.

    I'm in Australia, so will most likely buy online/ebay.

    I get you, I've heard of the the strap edges ungluing itself from normal wear which is disappointing. Mine came on a gator strap that I switched for an OEM rubber and leather strap that normally comes with a TimeWalker dual time watch. I'm a fan, and it was only $135.

    Nice, something like that would be great.

    Where did you get yours from?

    Got it from the Montblanc boutique. It was a newer release and they just ordered it in in December despite my placing the order with them in August.

    I'm in Australia and the Montblanc boutique wanted something crazy like USD$350 for a replacement of the original strap.

    I ended up buying a original strap in the NYC SoHo Montblanc boutique a few years ago for about USD$100 while visiting the USA which was in stock (there wasn't any stock in the Beverly Hills Montblanc boutique). That strap is now broken.

    Maybe I'll ask someone visiting USA to pick me up a strap, I'll just call around to make sure one is in stock.

    BTW, the DLC on the Dual Carbon Timewalker is very nice!

    Thanks again George.

    Oh wow... $350 will get you an OEM gator strap, which is still pricey IMO but much better than just a calf leather strap!

    Thanks for the feedback, I love the watch!

    Yeah we get ripped off badly in Australia.

    Is the OEM rubber and leather strap of the TimeWalker dual time durable?

    Re: Recommend me a band for my Timewalker

    I've only had it since December. I don't think it'll be too durable. The underside of the strap has a small corner that's undone, but the stitching is keeping it in place so it's not going to get bigger. I think the problem with the strap in the picture is that there is no stitching so when the glue unsticks, the strap is basically ruined.

    I do like the all black look of this strap, my gator strap had a standard tan lining which I found a bit out of place for a watch that's black. I prefer the black underside of this strap as it won't show wear as easily. I used protectant spray on my gator strap about once a month to try and preserve it but a spot still got dirty on the underside from wear.

    The issues with my original straps were the glue around the the buckle eventually came unglued.

    No stitching to keep it in place so it's only a matter of time before it comes undone.

    2 straps same issue hence why I want to replace it with something more durable.
