Cartier Santos-Dumont line is extremely well-received and very versatile with leather straps given the dressy nature of the watch. However, there is a lack of 3rd-party strap options as a special insert is needed to ensure that the straps fit flush with the watch.

If you want to instantly class up your timepiece and get it ready for a dressed up occasion, pair it with an Alligator strap and you are ready. Go with a handcrafted, Alligator strap and not some embossed pattern, because it isn't the same and you know it.
