Most Comfortable

This is the most comfortable after-market watch strap I have found, never "sweaty" like rubber, never loose like nylon, very pliable. This strap is marked "allergie geschützl" in German, which translates to something like allergy protected, and of course "Made in Germany". The subdued finish looks great, I like this especially with field watches, it seems to bring them up a notch in appearance, while retaining the practical look. Holben service is outstanding.

Great strap

This strap is perfect with this Accutron 214.
I applied some neatsfoot oil to darken it up a bit and the result as you can see is pure class.

Very comfortable strap, but it darkens significantly

It broke in very quickly and is extremely comfortable on my 35mm Easy Reader. However, it has darkened from the light grey seen in the product photos to a much darker charcoal in the two weeks I’ve been wearing it. Fortunately, this doesn’t bother me in the least because I just wanted a nice, neutral color that was different than the typical black or shades of brown. To that end, charcoal is just as good as grey.

I only wish that it was offered in short sizes. I’m in the second to last hole right now, and, after it stretches out, I’ll be using the last hole. It’s not the end of the world, but I do prefer my watch bands to have less of a tail.

Perfect strap for vintage watches

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.

Love this strap.

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.
