Very comfortable, high quality band

I got this to give my cream colored Alpinist a different look. The leather is very soft and feels great on the wrist. I love the distinct look it gives the watch. I have yet to be disappointed with any purchase from Holben’s. This is a great watch band!

Surpassed my expectations

As good as it looks in pictures, it’s even better in person. Beautiful, thick, extremely high quality leather but not at all rigid and awkward to break in. I can’t describe how comfortable and good looking it is. Strongly recommend

I'm very pleased with my new band. I had originally ordered through Amazon the Tobacco and Brown color variants, but in the wrong size. I came here to order the 22m lug width in Whisky color because there was no light brown/tan 22mm offering on Amazon. The Tobacco listing on Amazon and Whisky listing on Holben's use the same image so I figured it would be a similar color. It turns out the Whisky color is in between the Tobacco and Brown. It's probably the color you would visualize when you think a brown band that's not too dark or too light. Tobacco is a light tan and brown is like a dark chocolate. It's very dark. I ended up scratching the band with my finger nails to add texture, make it look more worn in, and ever so faintly lighten it up. The picture with the white background is before scratches (bathroom with white light). The others are after scratches (in direct sunlight).

Fantastic watch band!

I own a Citizen Avion and I wasn't impressed with the stock leather band that came with the watch so I decided to order this! This watch band looks absolutely amazing! It's a perfect match for this watch!

Only two downsides are: as others have mentioned it does have a weird seaweed smell to it! I'm sure it will wear off, but that is something you have to deal with from the get go! Also I have about a 3 3/4" wrist and the watch band fits perfectly on the very last hole (I lucked out)! I would say that if your wrists are smaller than this you need to either find a shorter watch band or you'll have to punch your own hole!
