The cost of breeding is very high, and there are very few usable parts of a crocodile skin. It is used for cutting. The parts of the crocodile are only the belly and both sides of the abdomen where the leather is very soft, and the cutting principle of symmetrical patterns is followed, so that less high-quality leather can be cut; things are rare and valuable, so the crocodile is created the rarity of leather straps;

On the premise of meeting the different needs of customers, it can be customized according to the customer’s wrist thickness, leather material selection, and color selection. It can be said that it provides a better match for high-end watches. Many options;

Although the strap is an accessory of the watch, without a good crocodile leather strap to match it, no matter how expensive the watch is, it will be overshadowed and lifeless. Only when you choose the right strap, a high-end watch can be called truly high-end. .
