I searched a long time to find a classic pig skin that resembles the ones from the 1940s. Fluco has the best pig skin in the market and the untappered 16 mm band makes it a true classic. Excellent customer service from Holbens as always, my number one stop for watch bands.
I absolutely love this strap. I had an old watch I had bought on ebay and it had a pig strap on it that I truly enjoyed. When I decided to buy a pig strap in a different width I found this Fluco tan. When it arrived I realized how much lighter it was than what I expected however it darkens with age. I wear this strap with the Seiko Alpinists, both the green and the one pictured and my white Junghans Max Bill. The older the strap gets the more I appreciate it. Strongly recommend.
My first Fluco strap...very impressive. Quality leather, well made, and most importantly, very comfortable right from the start.
I am quite sure I will buy another...( in Tan next time). As always, Holben's delivered a classy product, real fast, at a price that can't be beat.
