Jules Verne Alternative?

Are there any strap makers who make a 24mm gold nubuck alligator strap similar to the original Jules Verne offered by Panerai? I cannot find one anywhere, and have been lusting after one for quite awhile. I know they come up for sale from time to time, but I'd love to get my hands on a pristine (even a remake) that I can make my own with some wear. Any thoughts are welcome!

Thank you! I'll look into them. It looks like Hirsch has a nubuck alligator strap in gold as well, but I'm not sure if I like it.

Cheers!

I've got a brand new Large Jules Verne strap, too long for me, but alas, it is 26mm.

Couple days after this arrived, I found a regular Jules Verne strap that is a perfect fit….the large strap recently went to a new home.

I'm glad you found one. I'm going to give combat straps a try.

Thank you everyone!
