Craftsmanship of this watch band is exactly what I thought it would be, darn near perfect. The leather is tough, but subtle, the stitching matches the second hand dial on my marathon watch just like I planned.
I am very pleased with the overall appearance of my watch, and it's all because of the bands quality.
I will definitely buy another when necessary.
I have not gotten my band wet just yet, but as a wildlife photographer, I'm sure it will happen.
Pictured with the band is my Marathon aviator and paratrooper watch. The watch now looks great and more expensive than it was.
Buy the band, it is well made and worth the extra expense.
I love these straps. This one is my second, and it pairs perfectly with My Hanhart Pioneer One. As always, the service from Holben's was outstanding.
Luxury strap, is very substantial, it's layered like 2 leather straps in one. My complaints are the red stitching almost looks orange, and it's takes some work to get the strap through the first holder. This is the finest leather strap I have gotten my hands on. It seems so over engineered that it could be passes down to my children, even though the documentation that came with it says change it every 6-12 months.
Needed a waterproof leather for my Oris Carl Brashear chrono and the fit and finish of this strap is exactly what I wanted.
