The skin of American Mississippian alligator is rated as the most expensive and luxurious of all Crocodilians, because it’s the most durable, ages nicely and is the most flexible of all three species (alligator, crocodile, and caiman). Another reason why the Mississippian alligator is considered as the most luxurious leather material is due to their processing method, their skins keep their unique colors and patterns and only get a “vintage look” over time. Since they are processed without chemicals, they are suitable for persons with sensitive skin and or those prone to allergic reactions from leather products.

After knowing that the Mississippian alligators are rated the best leather material around, knowing where the best of the leather skin on an alligator is just as important.  The skin from the sides of an alligator is most commonly used as it is less expensive than those cuts from the belly and back (Hornback / Bony).

Alligator skins are limited if you compare with other leather products.  That also means the cost for a quality alligator leather strap would be a lot greater than your average cowhide leather watch Anotherstrap.
