Originally i was very excited about this strap. I ordered it 1yr 10m ago and only wear it for nicer events (1-2x a month). Within a few wears the internal leather had discolored significantly, i assumed this was normal.

The stitching began coming loose 1yr 9months into owning the watch. I noticed that the loop that goes around the spring bar had completely come apart while taking my watch off at night. I got VERY lucky that the watch did not fall while I was wearing it.

I reached out to Holben's support about this, and was told that the warranty is only valid for 1 year and no accommodations will be made. In my opinion, this is not nearly enough time to see any issues in something that is worn infrequently.

It is unclear if this is a quality control issue, but know that most likely the warranty will not be extended for you when you run into any issues.
Be careful if you are looking to buy any strap from Holben's. In the future I will be buying from another retailer. I'm not mad, I'm just disappointed.

Great quality for a fair price

This is an excellent strap for its price. A nice addition to my seiko alpinist.

Great quality, great price

Padded at the lugs, thin at the buckle which is smart. Just the thing for a change of pace for my Seiko Presage. I realized after I wore it for a day on the butterfly deployant that because of how thin the strap is at the buckle, it actually is more comfortable on the supplied buckle.

Love it!

Purchased this strap 3 weeks ago to switch out the steel bracelet on my Speedy. So far I’ve been impressed with how fast I received my order. The quality of the leather, the strap design itself and the finish is quite impressive as well. Feels quite supple and already taken the shape of my wrist. They say that Horween SC gets better with time so I’ll try to post update in a few months. So far I’m very happy with my purchase and I would definitely recommend.

Brown Fluco Horween Shell Cordovan

I've bought several great shell cordovan straps from Holben's, and this one is no exception. The brown color is beautiful and has depth, which I appreciate over the black shell I generally wear. All Fluco straps I've owned have been well constructed and long lasting. The padding is also perfect; not too thick or thin, but just right. The stitching is even and the right thickness to wear in both dressy and more casual situations. I've found that these Fluco padded straps are very versatile in this regard, and can highly recommend them for daily use.
