Leather Nato Like a Pontos S Diver

Recommended Posts

Hey guys--its been awhile since I've checked in. Hope everyone is well.

Awhile ago I had a Maurice LaCroix Pontos S Diver (that I traded here on RWG for LLD on my wrist now!). The leather nato on the Pontos was incredible. Very soft and thin with leather keepers and cool stitching. I believe I read somewhere that it was kangaroo leather, but I cannot find that reference anymore. This is what it looked like.

Does anyone know if indeed that strap would have been from a kangaroo? 

Regardless of the animal, what is the softest, nicest leather nato you can recommend to me for this thing i just picked up:

Speaking purely from my perspective, koalas are a lot softer than kangaroos.

But I've never seen a strap made out of koala.....................

Perhaps ask @Cubic Hare for his advice. He's had a wide range of experience with different hides.

Best of luck with your search, Tyler.

There are millions of Kangaroo natos. JFGI as they say.

They look decent though; thin, hard wearing - lovely!
