This is the 2nd Rallaye strap that I've bought from Holbens. The 1st was a 20mm I got a few years ago and put on a chrono diver. I've used it surfing, ocean swimming, ocean fishing, fresh water swimming, hiking, yardwork, and daily life and it still looks almost new, besides shrinking 1mm in width. The 2nd is 22mm and I expect it to be as durable as the first.
Both are well made, great quality straps that won't disappoint.
Excellent service, fast delivery. Comfortable, supple leather & quality construction.
It was the look I wanted. Rallye strap on PVD Heuer. Watch originally came with a bracelet, but I think the strap honors the heritage. Quality leather, built to last.
I’ve never used any waterproofed leather and this is a first. It’s pliable and works out of the envelope. I do like the loop that keeps the keeper in place. I wished they came out with more colors/options. I’d buy more for sure!
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.
