The Fluco strap is a great accompaniment to my new Mido watch. The manufacturer's all-steel band is just too shiny for my likes, but I really love how it looks with this fine leather. The comfort and appearance are simply top-notch!
I also appreciate how nice and friendly Holben's was to work with. I bought a regular strap but realized it was really too large for me. The exchange process was a snap, and the smaller size is a perfect fit for my 7" wrist!
I couldn’t find a Max Bill with a dark brown strap, but was so happy to find the Fluco strap I needed here. Not needed at all, but applied a dab of Saphir Renovateur and it’s ready for daily duty. Thanks!
Purchased this strap to replace the stock strap on my Hamilton Jazzmaster. Strap that came with the watch looked fine but was very stiff and not breaking in after two weeks of wear. The Fluco strap is very flexible and conformed to my wrist almost immediately, providing a better fit on the wrist for the watch.Also the strap is a beautiful smooth leather that enhances the look of the watch.
As always shipping from Holben’s was very fast and arrived a day ahead of schedule.
Will continue to purchase all my straps from Holben’s.
Ok here's the deal, this strap is really luxurious yes durable. A great middle ground between dressy and casual. Stop contemplating and buy it!
I have a little collection going on of leather, nylon, and metal watch straps that I swap in and out of my watch. This is by far my favorite leather strap I've come across. Big plus that they sell both regular and short sizings.
The leather immediately adapted to my wrist and felt comfortable. Other straps have felt stiff even after I spent some initial time trying to break them in.
I also think the leather has the right level of shine and a classic stitching pattern that my casual to business casual needs, but I'd feel comfortable dressing up with it too. I switch this strap between a dress watch and a field watch. Looks great on both.
It feels durable when I flex and pull at it, but time will tell on long term durability. Shell cordovan leather certainly has a strongly positive reputation in this arena.
