After wearing the strap on my Orient Ray II for a week, I like it better everyday. I’ve read reviews saying it is suede, but it’s not. It’s not a polished leather either. The best thing to compare it to is nubuck...it’s velvety. Leather is pretty thick, but not stiff, and very comfortable to wear. The buckle is a bit too thin for the thickness of the leather, but it’s ok and gets the job done. I usually change my watch buckles to deployant clasps anyway. Bottom line, it’s a lovely strap that can be worn casual or a bit dressy; leather is very good quality; long length option is a plus. I highly recommend this strap, especially for the price
Bought this as an alternative strap for my Dan Henry 1970 watch, having seen ColaReb recommended on the Urban Gentry You Tube channel. Very impressed with the quality of the strap - it looks great and complements the 1970 perfectly. I've been wearing it for a few months and I'm definitely more inclined to wear my 1970 now with the Venezia strap than I was with the original rubber strap (nice though that is). Will be considering ColaReb again in the future on the back of buying this strap.
Bought this for my new blue omega seamaster and couldn’t be happier. Looks amazing and feels very secure & high-end while still flying under the radar
The Colareb Venezia strap collection is, in my view, the best in the lineup, offering high quality and great value. I have a black Venezia for the watch pictured--Glycine Combat Sub model GL0244--but the recent ocher strap with pvd buckle purchase has become my favorite daily wearer. The strap is far more comfortable than a rubber strap--kept on hand for wet use--and the ocher color adds a certain pop to the watch. Admittedly, it took a couple of weeks to get accustomed to the unique color--one morning I strapped on my watch and it hit me, "This really works well. It's beautifully different." For the money, and Holben's fine customer service, this is a great choice. The Venezia line overall is very worthy of your consideration.
