I was hoping to add a fun complimentary color to this gold-plated Omega and this DeBeer blue lizard grain did the trick. It's very comfortable, is a perfect 18mm fit on the watch, and it came with a very attractive gold clasp, but I had the original Omega clasp so I swapped it out. Not too thin, not too thick, just right.
I have a Cartier watch and found a strap through Amazon. Although all reviews pointed to an outstanding strap, I disliked it a great deal. It was too thick, it hurt my wrist, and it was not sophisticated enough for a Cartier watch. Luckily, this strap was sophisticated and did not break the bank. I absolutely live it! Thank you to whoever posted the picture of the strap on a Cartier. Very helpful...
This is my second time buying the lizard grain deBeer strap. This time, I went with the blue 19mm with a gold buckle. The craftsmanship is top notch and the thickness and taper is perfect. Holben’s is the best place to buy watch straps on the internet, period.
The leather is fine and soft but stiff enough to keep a sharp look. The grain is beautiful and does add to your watch. Once it is broken in it looks and feels similar to high end leather straps. Remember to conserve and purchase skins from animals that are not in danger. This is cow/lamb hide with a lizard embossed grain. French design.
The band looks beautiful on my recently restored 1960 Hamilton K-416 watch. This was a very good value... a quality band at a reasonable price with fast shipping.
