I'm looking for a brown crocodile-like strap, but I don't want to spend a lot of $$$.

I saw this:
http://cgi.ebay.com/22MM-BROWN-CROC...ryZ98624QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

What do you guys think? I don't know much about these types of things. I'm not expecting to get real croc but do you think this is decent quality for the money?

Are there sites that have straps like that?
I have heard good things about Interantional Watchman and belive that he has some of the lowest prices around. I've been very happy with The Watch Prince (A WUS Sponsor I believe) and their service. If you need unusual length straps then there is a German site that has the most Short and XL straps of anywhere I've been able to find on the internet but they are not the cheapest.

Doc.........I 2nd that. The site referred to below is for a Crocodile GRAIN leather strap. IWI carries real croc for $27.

Watch Prince and Lonestar.com are also excellent!

Ken,

You know me, recommending a German company was a stretch ;-) Seriously, IWI has the lowest prices I have found, appears to carry loads of XL straps, and is the only one I have ever seen with quick change straps in XL. As for the German Company - great service, superior selection, and descent prices - so if you are looking for an odd-ball strap in XL try them.

IWI also has great push button deployants at a very low price!

I agree with the postings about the good service at the Watch Prince. This leather strap was $21.95 from Watch Prince. I will be checking out the IWI re: $27 for genuine croc.
