Short strap fits 6.25" wrist very well

The fluco strap has a nice, soft feel to it and bears a resemblance(somewhat) to the original Junghans strap. It comes with one set of spring bars. Bergeon 6767-F is what I use to replace the strap.
It seems that the strap length is slightly shorter than what was indicated on the website. My measurement is 103/68mm. The lug to lug length of my Junghans Max Bill 34mm Handaufzug is only 37mm (The lug to lug span of most watches is around 44-48mm). I used the third or second shortest hole on the strap. I like that the pointed end of the strap doesn't wrap around the side of my wrist.
btw, I can't seem to find this model, FLUCO CHICAGO HORWEEN SHELL CORDOVAN on Fluco website. Well, as long as it works, I don't mind.
Thank you Mike :)

Watch Strap Nirvana

Beautiful strap, perfectly complements my new Seiko Prospex. I am so grateful for Holben's and their extensive collection of short straps -- in this case a 20mm short.

What a difference

I recently purchased a Sternglas Naos when my Oris unexpectedly stopped working. I wasn’t happy with the strap that came with the new watch, so after shopping around and reading dozens of reviews I found this one. I’m super 😃. What a difference a quality strap can make. It turned a couple of hundred dollar watch into something that’s looks like it costs thousands. I’m very impressed with the quality will buy again. Thinking of putting one on my Artelier when I get it back.

Excellent Quality

Excellent quality Cordovan strap at a good price. Comfortable on the wrist. I'll be ordering more.

Comfortable strap but…

Overall these are very comfortable and look great but I ran into some issues with the edge coating. I ordered the black, whiskey and dark brown straps and the edge coating is kind of tacky on all of them but was worse on the dark brown. It would stick to my finger if it touched it and would peel off. I left it out on a shelf for a couple of days to see if it would dry out but that was unsuccessful. The black strap was a little sticky at first but now it’s flaking off. The whiskey seems ok for now. I don’t know if it’s from the humidity where I live or if the straps have been sitting around for a while or what. It’s not a huge deal because I had some brown and black “Edge Kote” and mixed them together to get the right color and redid the edge on the brown one and looks like I’ll need to do the black one too. Anyways that’s my experience, other than that they seem like good straps. The photo of the black strap shows an are that has flaked off, the photo of the brown one is after I redid the edge.
