Where Is The Best Place To Buy Real Alligator Leather Watch Straps?
A good wristwatch normally has a much longer life span than its appearance might be. It can work from 20 to 30 years, even hundreds of years.

You can buy leather straps at well-known and trustworthy leather shops that are trusted by many people such as Babu Handmade Leather, LaForce. However, seeing is believing. What we should believe in is what we can see and experience by ourselves.
For example, to distinguish natural alligator leather with a fake one, you can follow one of these methods:
- The first method is that you can drop a Drop a small drop of water onto the surface of the leather. If the water is absorbed and spread evenly around, it is real alligator leather. However, on the surface of fake alligator leather, the drop of water will roll off its surface due to the fact that fake Simili and PU leathers are unlikely to absorb water.
- Or you can press onto the surface of alligator leather strap. Due to the high resilience of alligator leather watch straps, when being pressed hard, if alligator leather is real, your finger will leave a dent where you press and gradually fade away.
