Originally designed for the British army, this strap - typically produced in reinforced nylon - has a long-standing reputation for its unique toughness and flexibility. The J12-G.10 chose its new identity by taking its name from the form used to order this legendary military strap.
In a strikingly novel way, alligator skin with large scales has replaced the original nylon. Resolutely modern, this strap covers its tracks by adopting some feminine charm, without ever losing its sturdiness and comfort, and offers a definitively luxurious allure.

The new J12-G.10 is available in seven different models, with varying degrees of diamonds on the bezel, case and dial. Making the watch exceptionally precious, the buckle is set with brilliant and baguette cut diamonds. The high-tech ceramic cases are offered in white and in black.
