I have to second the Maikes buckles, I’ve got 3 of them (sorry, I was just thinking clasps!). The tang fits its slot in the buckle perfectly, very solid and secure units.I've bought these which are pretty good.

I bought the croc from the link in the OP. I am happy with it. You can get entry-level croc for about $15-20. I'm confident it's genuine croc. I've seen a bunch of sellers that sell similar ones, probably using the same supplier. All have the 'circular' croc pattern (cheaper than bamboo), and aren't particularly thick. Nothing outstanding about the strap quality, but it's well made and feels good.Any experience on genuine croc straps on Ali? Looking for 19mm... A few are there, for example the Mailed, but I have no idea on the quality or if they are really real.

Thanks John! This one was already in my wish list. Great to read you have experience with it. Definitely worth a shot for twenty bucks.I bought the croc from the link in the OP. I am happy with it.

There are sellers that sell faux croc. If it's 'genuine leather' in stead of genuine croc/alligator, I'd be suspicious. Also anything sub-$15 is prob faux. I've seen a couple real croc for £11 but anything below that is surely faux.
I've been interested in some 'bamboo' croc straps. But they tend to be $40+.
Looks amazing. But can't find this on amazon. Do you have a link?
Just bought an 18mm wocci with the same style of clasp for 6GBP (after sale + 4gbp coupon currently active on amazon) because of how nice it looks in this post.WOCCI Watch Band 18mm 20mm 22mm Full Grain Leather Strap

This strap is the best I've found on Ali so far. For $25 I think you'd have a hard time beating this one anywhere. It's obviously hand stitched and the leather is decent quality and definitely appears to be full grain as advertised. There's quite a bit of hand detailing on this strap you just won't find on anything comparable in price. Doesn't look or feel cheap. Whatever mid-layer material they are using provides the right amount of flex and stiffness. The backing material appears to be leather as well, but looks and feels like decent quality whatever it's made from. I have a 7" wrist and I'm on the 3rd hole with 5 to go, so it should fit a pretty wide range of wrist sizes. It measures somewhere close to 75/115mm. Thickness is about 3.25mm which suits my Tisell Explorer perfectly. Should work fine for a dress watch as well. I wouldn't put it up against some of the $100 straps I've bought, but I think it's considerably better than the $50 ones you get from Hirch and other mass produced ones. It came well packaged in a decent little box with 4 springbars and a tool.
I ordered this back on April 17 and just got it today, so shipping is about par for the course for Ali stuff going by way of China post.
