Recommended Posts

Hi all I'm looking to purchase a cartier santos 100 for my first rep but reading quite a few reviews and posts that the leather straps aren't up to scratch , has anyone got the two tone face silver and gold with the brown strap or can tell me how there strap is?

Many thanks

The rep strap sucks. I got a custom strap made but it broke at the replica lugs. I should've gone gen and did. You can find genuine alligator strap for about $200. And gen Cartier strap for about $300 to $350.

the rep santos strap is very uncomfortable, very difficult to adjust and smells weird. My strap broke within about a year of minimal use

Just bought the gen strap. Lines up perfectly on the watch. Easy swap. If the screw gets stuck, use a wooden toothpick to poke it out frm the other side. Gen strap is the way to go.

Did u all mean u all were able to purchase a gen strap from Cartier?!! Don't think they are selling at all right?

Or did u all mean gen strap as in a "gen leather strap"?

 

Pardon me my ignorance, am a newbie. Heh.

Genuine straps are available from the U.S. Cartier Service Center but they are in excess of $400. I found using local authorized Cartier Dealers they will give you a break on price, I bought mine for $325.  I read in another post that a member had a crocodile made by Ziczac Leather for $59.00. Hope this helps.

I think you will find that the original poster has long gone. Can I ask why you have gone back to a topic started in 2014??
