Just received an Erika's Original Black Ops Yellow strap for my Tissot Chrono.
Great delivery and service from Holben's. Thanks Mike for your emails.
In my opinion, the yellow accents of the band perfectly highlight the yellow chrono hands on the watch. Has given it a new 'personality' over the black leather band supplied with watch.
Will definitely deal with again.
It's been pointed out by others, and I agree, that this product doesn't really seem like eighty bucks' worth of goods in your hand. But it does work well; it's very comfortable from the get-go; it looks good; and you can tell it will hold up. So its value lies in checking the boxes, IMO, and I'm good with it. I got black with red trim, figuring it should pick up the red accents on my Seamaster dial face. And I think it does that pretty nicely. My Holben's transaction was seamless.
A friend recommended Erika’s Originals, and after trying theirs on I was sold. The quality and craftsmanship began to justify the price, in my mind. I found out the straps were available locally (for me) through Holben’s, and had to jump at the opportunity to support two quality small businesses.
I ordered the 20mm version of this strap and love how it pairs with my Hamilton Field Khaki mechanical. Solid grey color, and the band has just enough stretch. I definitely plan to buy a couple more colors.
