Wears smooth, on close up grains of leather texture. Quite the statement kind of strap. On an overcast day the red appears to be slightly darker, photos on 19mm lug width Dan Henry 1964
After making a recent blue-leather-strap purchase on watchbandsonline.com, only to find it was a dud of a strap (started fraying apart at the edges within weeks), I decided to try this out on my Seiko Presage srpb77. Seriously—what a stunning watch band did I find! This blue is like a slightly-sun-dried cerulean hue that echoes of a wonderful beach day, helping to frame my watch's blue dauphin hands against the steel case and dial. First ColaReb watch strap, but consider me a future customer.
