Dark brown leather as described. A rugged leather it adds a classic look to my watch.
Great strap. Nicely finished. I don't know about the earlier review. It's on the large size of 20mm, but that's better as it fills up the space. I used it on an early Omega cal 321 Speedmaster Pro. I would recommend.
This band is very good quality upon initial inspection. However, in use it is flawed. The band is actually closer to 21mm making it a tight fit in a 20mm watch. Also, the band is about 3/4" shorter than an average band, but curiously there aren't enough wrist holes. I'm typically on the last 2 or 3 holes on a strap, but on this one I'm on the last hole and it is slightly too large and as a consequence the watch flops around somewhat annoyingly. Finally, the buckle pins do not fit flush on the buckle, which is pretty aggravating. The buckle has already snagged on terry cloth towels twice and my clothes once in just 2 days of wearing it. Hopefully this will fix itself as the band breaks in, but in the mean time I have to exercise caution and constantly monitor the buckle. I should probably rate it lower given these annoyances, but boy it sure does look good.
Beatutiful, high quality band.
