Thread: Strap price inflation!

  1. #1

    Strap price inflation!

    On my late father's watch, I have a Hirsch Capitano, alligator, black that I bought just less than 3 years ago for 190 (less a chunky promotional discount).

    Thinking that the watch might look nicer on a lighter strap I went to see what was available and the price has rocketed to 269!

    Thank goodness none of the colors were what I had in mind.

    The Isofrane that I bought at the same time for 72 (less discount) is now an eye watering 140.

    What's happened? Has the world gone mad?

    I think the most I've ever paid for a strap is 65 (Hirsch performance).

    I'm telling a slight lie as I paid 230 for a replacement leather Cartier strap for my ex.

    This is probably going to sound stupid but I've actually bought whole watches just for the Stainless steel straps then sold the watches afterwards. I don't think I've ever lost money doing it
    But on purchasing my most expensive strap I paid 95.00 plus a fiver postage for a Christopher Ward C65 SS strap.

    Doesn't sound daft at all - I've bought a couple of Eddie's 2-piece nylons simply for the deployants
