UPDATE: It's been about 9 months of beating on two of these watch bands, and they've both held up very well. Really quick to put on and take off, and almost no pinching. If the colors match your watch case, this one is a great buy.
ORIGINAL REVIEW: I decided to save my nice leather strap for nicer outings, and get something metal for my daily driver. I like magnetic mesh straps for the comfort, but I work in a hospital and am around a lot of equipment, so the magnet tends to grab things. This strap makes the whole watch feel more hefty, but you can tell that this strap isn’t made from the heaviest metal. The latch is well designed, and does not feel like it will come undone by accident. I was hoping the black would be more on the gunmetal side of things, and it sorta is, but doesn’t exactly match my watch case. Personally, I don’t care about that, and I actually appreciate the contrast. I also tried this black strap on a silver case that I have, and it looks fantastic. I think I’ll get another one. To match that watch, or to mix and match with my daily gray watch.
All of the necessary tools, spring bars, and instructions are useful, and I had this thing sized pretty quickly. I plan on abusing this watch band at the workplace, so time will tell how durable it is. But initially, I am quite happy with this purchase.
