Breitling Navitimer on Custom Alligator watch strap:
Hi strap lovers. I’m very excited to share some wonderful photos from my good customer Ian of his tasty Breitling Montbrillant Navitimer on his newly arrived Vintage Cognac Alligator strap watch strap. This Vintage Cognac Alligator is from our premium France Croco Alligator Collection. We are lucky enough to be able to make personal visits to the France Croco Warehouse in Milan a couple of times per year in order to hand pick the Alligator hides we’ll be offering. Never knowing what we are going to find, we nearly always over spend because invariably, we find some incredible and often one-of-a kind hides that we simply can’t pass up! The Vintage Cognac was on such offering. This hide just exudes old school masculine class (think paneled walls, leather club chairs, cigar smoke and a good whisky or think vintage sports cars and driving gloves). It’s hard to believe that after all these years in the business that an Alligator hide can conjure up so many associations, but there you are. Needless to say, I had to have it!
In any case these beautiful photos from Ian have captured his watch and new Custom Alligator strap to best advantage and highlighted the beauty of both. The Vintage Cognac Alligator has a very subtle grey Antiquing at the edge of the scales that matches well with the bronze dial of the Breitling.
This strap features high domed padding at the lugs and our ‘Thick Curved Lug System’ (TCLS) to give the strap an integrated fit between the lugs.
Thanks to Ian for these lovely photos, yours is most certainly our new ‘Watch of the Week’!!
