  • This watch strap has been made from a lovely, oiled genuine Horween USA leather for fantastic look and feel, and years of wearing pleasure with your favourite watch.

    The Horween Leather Company has set the standard for the highest quality leathers since 1905. Now you can enjoy the sumptuous look and feel of this material on several Geckota straps, including this one. The strap has a fantastic quality feel and look to it, and after you have worn it for a little while it will take on its own unique vintage look.

    What will you love most about your Horween leather strap? Will it be the 'excellent quality for the price' that one buyer commented on? Or the extreme comfort and being 'supple on the wrist from the first time' that another reviewer noted? When watch enthusiasts like you describe the Horween Kaizen R-17 Vintage as the 'best strap ever bought', you know you are onto something good.

    Look closely and appreciate the careful stitching with ivory linen thread. And details like the metal lining tubes in the spring bar holes for extra strength and durability. There are also two sturdy floating keepers to secure the strap tail when the strap is on your wrist.

    Quality, performance and great looks complement each other perfectly. Look forward to your Kaizen R-17 delighting with its solid stainless steel pre-v buckle with a satin brush finish. Customers also love how we spare no expense for the strap lining. In fact, we use the same quality top leather, which has been approved and stamped with the Geckota logo.

    The Geckota Horween Kaizen R-17 vintage strap is available to fit watch lug widths of 22 mm, 24 mm and 26 mm in each of four different shades of oiled cowhide: deep jet black; dark chestnut brown; tan brown; and our favourite, classy vintage red.

    The quality of the leather is excellent, so it is also good to wear. The thickness and length are equal to the measured values. I'd like to buy another color as well.


    Very impressed

    My first purchase from WatchGecko, Bought this in 26mm black for a Garmin Fenix 3 Sapphire. The strap and contrast stitching suit the watch well. It's been comfortable to wear from the outset and feels and looks a quality product. The only minor improvement I'd want to suggest is to make the buckle end of the strap another 10mm longer to allow a little more adjustment potential for larger wrists.

    Excellent quality for the price, the pictures doesn't do any justice, I ordered the red one for my Pam and looks so sexy.


    Best strap ever bought

    Rating:

    This is the best strap I've ever bought. It's extremely comfortable, supple on the wrist from the first time and extremely well finished. I bought the red one and is just stunning. In between red and burgundy. In my opinion, Horween leathers are the best.


    Good Value

    Nice, thick leather. Looks great on my Panerai. Should look even better once broken in. Had to order another color as it's such a good deal.

    Well Made Quality Leather Strap

    Rating:

    I was looking at the brown vintage strap but thought i would give the red for a different look.The strap is well made and fills the lug gap brilliantly on the smiths Everest watch. The quality overall is superb.


    Great strap for retro styled watches

    Rating:

    A beautiful strap with a vintage feel! The oiled leather has a great texture. It's quite beefy (about 4mm thick) and the white stitching is nicely pronounced, so it will work beautifully with larger watches. The edges are sealed.


    Thumbs up!

    Brilliant strap. Looks more expensive than it actually is.
