Bought this to replace the broken mesh bracelet on my eBay-find '79 Omega quartz. The texture on the leather is just enough to give it a vintage look, and the buckle matches the gold case really well. The leather is well-stitched and feels like quality, is fairly thin and flexible, and didn't require any break-in. It wears comfortably and unobtrusively as well, not bulky at all. A nice subtle strap that pairs well with old school watches, and another solid Fluco!
I change straps on a regular basis, and have purchased very expensive ones over the years. The problem today is you have so many options that choosing a good quality strap is not particularly difficult, however, finding a great quality strap at an affordable price has become very difficult. That's where Holben's comes in, and particularly this Fluco leather strap. The quality, fit and finish is absolutely incredible, this is one of the most comfortable straps I've tried on in a long time. It requires no time to break in, and the pebble grain is absolutely beautiful. I love the final look of the watch on this strap.
This is my 2nd Deauville strap from Fluco. The graining of the leather is fantastic and keeps the strap—even in dark colors—from looking dull. Color on the dark brown is pretty accurate to the photo. This is a very dark, deep shade of brown. I love the 2mm taper and availability of 19mm sizing. This is great option for vintage or vintage style watches. No negatives except that this will require a springbar tool to change out.
Note: wrist size is 7.5”, 19cm.
I like the unique texture & appearance of this Deauville straps, it’s really compliments my vintage Universal Geneve Compax watch. The brown color looks really good on lighter colors dials. It needs little time to break in. The straps is really high quality & shipping from Holben’s is lighting fast.
