Best quality leather strap for the money. Description is accurate as leather does appear to be calfskin and is embossed with crocodile grain pattern. Sarb033 Approved.
I have to be honest about this one, the color is really tough on my eyes. It's more electric blue that what it it shows on the web page or the video it's featured in. Not super different, but page shows just enough gray in the color to tone down the rather "serious" blue. No go, it's all neon, baby. And it looks like a candy coating rather than a dye. I probably would have exchanged it for something else less aggressive, but I wasn't sure I disliked it as much as I do, so I installed it. I had to bend the spring bars due to the case I was working with having a curve in a bad place, so it really wasn't returnable. I'll try to live with it.
So far, this strap is everything I wanted. It's classy, and makes my Orient watch look amazing. Will be looking at Holbert again in the future!
Great color and alligator grain. A bit stiff but with wear it should soften. Fits very well-be exact when measuring!
Bought the hubby a watch for Christmas which had a metal links band. He doesn't care for those, so I went on the hunt for another band. The watch is a gorgeous sapphire blue with rose gold. This band matches the watch color perfectly and having the available option of the rose gold buckle sold me.
