From the moment I put it on I knew that it would exceed even my most optimistic expectations.
I bought if for my vintage Wenger, but frankly, this high-quality band deserves a much better watch. How can a 4mm thick calfskin watch strap be so soft, so comfortable, yet so durable and so robust?
I waited before I submitted this review because I wanted to see how it broke in. Simply better than expected. Already it is so comfortable I keep forgetting I have a watch on at all. I was out all day yesterday in mid-90 degree heat and it did breathe better than anything I have ever had and as a "waterproof" band, it did not absorb perspiration like other quality leather bands. Just perfect.
It didn't take me long to appreciate the double-pronged buckle and the keeper anchor.
Holbens always has the best selection across the board, best prices, easy to navigate website, immediate shipping, and sincere customer service.
Very comfortable and stylish strap. Perfect for my Zenith. Fast shipping. Highly recommended
This is a very nice band. It is very comfortable. I’m using it on a Certina automatic chronograph with a black dial and red hour and minute hands on the chronograph sundials as well as the red hand marking the chronograph seconds. It gives the watch a very sporty look. I’ve ordered other bands from Holben’s and have never been disappointed.
Perfect match for my vintage-inspired Seiko Chrono. Seems to be of good quality.
