Looks great - like others have said, it's a little bit thicker than I expected it to be, but it gives it a very quality feel. It was a little bit difficult to get on the first few times being as stiff as it was, but it feels like it's slowly becoming a bit more manageable.
Regarding the strap, it's good. A bit thicker then I would like but otherwise well done.
Holden's service was outstanding.
This watch band is top quality, and enhances the look of any well made older style pilot watch. The coloring of the leather creates a good historical look, with a luxury quality appeal. A bargain!
It's a bit pricey, but it has a certain heft to it despite it's low profile that really indicates quality. I've been wearing it on my watch for about a week now, and it really looks and feels nice. It *does* have a bit of a bunch near where I've had it fastened, but I think that's due to it just being so new. It still feels like it needs to be broken in a bit, but once it acquires a bit of bit of patina, I imagine it'll be perfect. 4 stars only because it was realllllllllly expensive, but for a nice watch, you really want the best. That, and it's legit leather, so what do you expect?
