The lizard, was the first leather of reptile that have been used in watchstraps industry. Indeed, previously, only bovine, goat and porcine leathers were used. The fanatics of Rolex collection watches know that very well : the original straps in reptile put up on prestigious Oyster manufactured after the Second World War were systematically made in lizard.

This material was used by the great Genevan brand up until the 70s; until the crocodile advent, then the alligator advent. If originally, straps in lizard leather intended to men as well as women, with the time being, it became almost exclusively "reserved" for ladies … However, some forewarned amateurs (male) always prefer this material rather than any conventional skin such as alligator when it’s about to fit an old watch or a vintage model.

As regards our customer ladies, they understood very well the several advantages they could pull off using the lizard to re-do their straps.

First of all, the lizard remains the cheapest reptile leather : they can thus offer themselves few straps for the same watch and enjoy the benefit of straps interchangeability using the flash pins system.
