Finally sorted a budget real croc strap for my Santos xl100

I ordered this Santos xl100 from Mary (brilliant as ever) but everyone knows the imitation croc straps aren't great. Not wanting to shell out ~$$$ for a new gen strap or a tired second hand one I managed to persuade the good people at ZicZac leather to make me a croc strap for it (they don't usually list Santos straps) and they did it for $59 delivered.

Pleased with the quality, the resin on the strap edges was a little thick to fit the lugs so I used scotchbrite to file a bit off it off to fit.

Thinking about ordering a brown or tan one

Nice one, did you send your rep strap to them to use the inserts?

That looks good.  

Replacing the strap on reps is well worth it.

Nope, they said they'd made one once before. It was simple, took a while, but their custom jobs always do.

Great, good to know. I hope they got less messy with the order management from last time I've used them :)

Nope still a mess, they really need better QC as they have a 50% hit rate, but they are always happy to remake it to the original spec.

20b13582d8c8c3953ce01113e0c462cf.png I just convinced my friend to order this in advance of receipt of his watch, so that the lead time for a decent strap isn’t prohibitive. I think it’s fantastic. Has Zic-Zac upped its straps / target market to be more competitive with Vic et al?

I think so, I did tell them there is a big market for a cheaper real croc Santos strap.

Zic-Zac did a Santos 100 (medium) strap for me one year ago. It was perfect. They do not need the plastic end-pieces of your rep strap any more. They said that now they had sourced them. You can buy with confidence.
