This is a great alternative to leather. The stitching is flawless. I highly recommend.
There aren't many good vegan leather watch straps out there, but this turned out to be the perfect one, even coming in odd sizes like 19mm, and with quick release tabs to boot. If you're a vegan looking for a good watch strap, or even just someone looking for a good strap in general, I'd highly recommend this. Also I was extremely pleased with the customer service from Holben's.
As a vegan who just got into watches, I'm glad that there are so many non-leather straps out there, but this strap is an especially fantastic option. It's smooth and comfortable to wear, and it has a similar texture to real leather. The light brown color pairs well with a wide variety of dials. I bought it specifically for my SNK805, and it complements the green dial nicely. The fact that it's made from a family-owned Italian business is just the cherry on top. Definitely going to get more of these EcoSuede straps!
Absolutely awesome purchase. Arrived to L.A. very quickly, and it looks/feels perfect. HOWEVER, if you have small wrists, this strap will be a problem for you. I'm in my mid 20s, but I have to wear mine on the very 1st hole, and I can easily fit 2 fingers underneath. On cold days it wiggles a lot. But aside from that, I'm satisfied with it, and have already recommended it to my coworker.
I wanted a vegan strap and glad I found this site. I ordered this product assuming that I would get a softer strap but instead received a very thick strap, which was disappointing. I must have returned it but due to other reasons I missed the time limit. I am not sure if softer version is available. I feel good about wearing a vegan strap but not very satisfied.
