Post a comment on your favorite makers and I'll add them to the list. Post shots of your favorite watch/strap combo. List the name of the maker and strap model in the post. Remember, the focus here is on QUALITY, QUALITY, QUALITY.

I've dealt with Brian at BJ straps for a few years. The straps are always nice, but the lead times are all over the place. I just ordered another strap last month and sent him an email about a new one but I found several threads on watchuseek about him being months behind. We shall see what happens. Haven't heard back about the new strap yet.

My vote is for Micah straps. Extremely popular with the Paneristi.

Vintager watch Straps by Micah: custom handmade Panerai straps

Have to agree here... Micah straps are extremely well built and the guy is awesome to deal with. Greg Stevens are also quite nice and comparable to Micah. BJ Straps are excellent for the money, hands down the cheapest custom straps out there I think. I pretty much have every leather he offers, can't beat his prices.

As far as Panerai goes, Leather Works by Emre and Bosphorus Straps both make quality products for their price, IMO.

My custom Lambarri Leather Craft gets the most wrist time from any aftermarket strap I have, by FAR.

Rob Montana makes a damn fine strap too, but the LV leather is about as uncomfortable as a strap can get. Looks cool though.

Greg Stevens, I've had first hand experience dealing with him and he took care of me. He has exceptional customer service and you can't go wrong with their quality.

Italian maker Altamarea is one of the best. They have excellent gators. The other maker I can really highly recommend is Peter.watchacc. He can be found on FB and that Panerai enthusiast website. He makes oem quality but for half the price.

Great. Thanks for the input. They are now added to the list. I've been searching high and low for a nubuck gator/croc strap that is not a JV. Looks like Alta has the goods at a reasonable price. Much obliged.

Wow! So after cleaning and doing some ironing I decided to dig a little deeper with these makers. They've got some sick stuff!! Peter.watchacc is wonderfully priced too. Thanks for sharing!
