I'MHO, nothing beats a Breitling strap. Yes, independents do make some lovely pieces of leather, croc', canvas, rubber, NATO, Perlon, etc., etc., but nobody does it like Breitling. My camel croc' (now discontinued) is sublime.

And I have the ProII, III, & Aviator classic rubberwise, so comfortable on the deployant clasp.

While I will agree with Breitling straps being some of the best straps on the market, I personally cannot stand their deployant clasp. I find them to be very uncomfortable and mine would loosen during a day of wearing it requiring me readjust it. With all that being said, I ended up by a Breitling deployant micro adjustable clasp (the one for the rubber straps) and I had Jean Rousseau make me both a Croc and Calf strap for it. I would put both of those straps up against a Breitling strap all day long from both a quality and comfort stand point. My only complaint is that JR's customer service is awful but the end product is top notch. Just my 2 cents if you are looking for some other suggestions.

This would be a good opportunity to look into a custom strap tailored specifically for you.
Some ideas to get you going:

But I do have to agree, the craftmanship of an original breitling strap is second to none.
