Custom Watch Strap (Alligator)

Size Guide
  • Looking to customise an Alligator leather watch strap from scratch? You've come to the right place! Choose the style, leather colour, stitch colour that you like, let us know the sizing in your checkout notes (both lug width and strap length) and we will do the rest! If you have any additional requests (for example, lining leather colour or even stitch spacing) let us know and we will be glad to transform your vision into a reality.

    As always, all our watch straps will come with a silver tang buckle and quick release bars, so that you can easily swap out between your favourite watch straps and not have to fuss about scratching your watch lugs. No one will judge you for changing straps every day!

    Note: These straps will be made to order and thus require a lead time of a month before it is shipped out to you. We hope you understand - good work takes good time!

  • The following styles are available for Alligator watch straps:

    Signature: Stitched, padded and lined. Our signature straps are the full package. See the Signature Shell Cordovan straps as an example.

    Slim: Stitched, non-padded and lined. Only difference from the Signature is the lack of padding, which keeps the strap thickness the same throughout.

    Side-Stitch: Stitched on the outer edge at the lugs and watch buckle, non-padded, lined (for Alligator). Keeps the watch looking casual.

    Single Pass: One continuous piece of leather that runs behind the watch. Only stitched on the outer edge buckle, non-padded and lined (for Alligator). Easy-on, easy-off type of strap.

  • Alligator: A crowd favourite. A gator watch strap immediately classes up any watch. Perfectly suited for a Signature strap. Feeling a little bolder? Go with a side-stitch gator!

  • There are a total of 4 layers of various material that goes into each strap, with each layer serving a specific purpose. From top to bottom, they are: (1) exterior leather, (2) padding, (3) synthetic strengthener, (4) lining leather.

    All layers are firstly glued and pressed together, before they are stitched. Finally, the edges are finished with edge paint, which adds an additional layer along the exposed edges of leather and protects it from wear and tear, and water damage, over time. This also prevents the different layers from separating - an additional layer of prevention on top of the stitching.

Impeccable and bespoke straps

Always a true pleasure ordering from Delugs Strap.
The customisation process is both pleasant and easy. And the final product is always equally great.

Repeat customer

Delugs is my go to place. There is a good selection. The service is patience and helpful. I look forward to more straps from them. Thank you


Promised lead time was 4 weeks, received 8 weeks later. I showed a sample picture of how i want the strap to be, but the strap came in a much brighter shade of navy. On a fair note, seller did imply that he's willing to change to a darker shade but considering the uncertain wait time, i did not proceed with it. Also requested not to have logo stamped on the underside of the strap, but the strap came stamped with the logo anyway. On quality, decent but not fantastic. Definitely a disappointing "made to order" experience since the strap did not turn out the way i want and specified.

Good strap

Comfortable, well made

Exceptional quality

Purchased several alligator straps from Delugs and the repeat purchases speak a lot about my level of satisfaction. The default alligator belly straps are super of exceptional quality and totally uplift the level of class in my watches. Suddenly they feel like million-dollar worth.

Subsequently, I tried to be creative with Delugs and did some patterns from Alligator flanks. Voila.. it completely swept me off my feet and it brought a whole new level of game and style to my watches.

This is the level of quality and class as good as bespoke but a fraction of the price.

I couldn't have given more praises in my review and certainly would continue to purchase again.
