Bought believe it was 20mm came in 22 had to chew down to put on a gucci watch not pretty but the band if it fit was super nice but after u have to carve it out to fit its not so nice. Disappointed that the seller didn't recheck gauge of the width of the band,

I purchased this strap expecting a passable, but lower-end strap: thin padding, cheap and uneven stitching, and durable, but not terribly attractive leather. I was extremely surprised by the high quality of the band I received. I have owned straps by Hirsch, Hadley-Roma, Di Modell, and other big names and this is the best quality strap I own for twice the money.

The leather is top-notch, as fine calfskin as I've seen in this price range. It's soft and supple, with the perfect matte finish for the sporty style. The texture is subtle and attractive. The stitching is well-done and even, with thick, contrast-colored threading; it hasn't unraveled on any of the straps I bought. They didn't take shortcuts where less well-made straps have. The padding is even and generous and extends to the edges of the strap. It is a comfortable strap to wear. After a few months of ownership, they do not show excess wear.

There are some caveats, some minor flaws and quibbles. The 20mm size tapers to an awkward 16mm. For watches on the dressier side, this isn't a problem at all, but for sportier watches (like a full-size Omega Seamaster), the thin taper is awkward. The taper on the 22, 19, and 18mm straps is fine. Additionally, the actual color of the straps seem to be darker than shown in the pictures, particular with the Navy strap, which is a true navy and closer to black than what is shown.

With these issues in mind, this is still my go-to strap. The style is extremely versatile. I've paired one of these straps with a Kemmner Tonneau dress watch to give it a more casual look and a Tissot chronograph to dress it up a touch. I built a custom watch for my uncle with German parts and a nicely decorated Swiss Unitas hand-wind movement and this is the strap I chose. I've bought more than a half-dozen of these in all and I don't plan to stop.

The color is darker than the picture which is perfect. I bought this for the SRN055 along w/ black and blue straps. I really don't think this one is coming off for a while. It looks like it came on it. The weathering makes it look a little older, but very classy. I thought the white stitching would be too sporty, but it really works well. Love this watchband.

Bought my watch 9 years ago. No wonder the strap had to be replaced several time. This one is the most similar to the original strap. Happy

This is a nice watchband and appears to be well made. I am going to return it, only because when I put it on my watch, it looks a little narrow for the style of the watch, which is a medium size chrono. If it weren't for that, I would keep it. I saw the specs on it before ordering but it was hard to visualize how it would look until I received it. The padding between the backing and top layers gives the band a nice look.

Really good value for sporty look. I've bought this strap 3 times for different watches. Thick padding and contrast stitch hold up well. My one dislike is the "grain" of the leather is superficial, looks almost printed rather than tanned.

Great quality, but the stock photo for the blue is very misleading. I ordered both the black and the blue and the blue was so dark I could barely tell the difference between the two.


Pretty good quality. Leather and stitching are nicely done. Picture is not quite accurate as the leather is not shiny.
