Hi guys
We are looking at starting to offer replacement watch straps at our shop and I was just wondering if anyone could recommend a reliable supplier?
Thanks in advance 👍

I use several, but condor is best overall for range, price, quality and service.

Either Condor or LBS. 

 

LBS send out the same day if you get the order in before 2pm. Condor take a day or two.

What are the straps from Cousins like?

Also I’m trying to find some decent metal straps, the last few I’ve ordered from LBS have been rejected by my customers as being too flimsy. Does anyone have a recommendation?

They're okay. The one that stands out for me is a padded contrast stitched strap called "Milano". It is Also available from Donald Clarke. ( an important complimentary supplier to my pre dominantly condor range.)

We had some metal bracelets from Cousins before we started using Condor, and found them to be very good. I know what you mean about the LBS bracelets, they are a bit lightweight in comparison.

Do Cousins do a "starter pack" of watch straps? I am unsure what to stock as we don't do any at the mo.

Dont think they do, but if u order 12mm, 18mm, 20,mm in black and brown to begin with then 22, 24 and 16mm get u started,remember straps start from 6mm to 30mm in 2 mm increments and by the time you have ordered all in black brown tan and white you are talking nearly 1000 pound, so i would say start with fast sellers and build your stock
