Beautiful handmade "Vintage Rolex Type" Genuine Leather watch strap. An exciting addition to the range is a coloured stitching version of this classic handmade design.
Made from an Italian calf leather that has a wonderful vintage look to it. The straps are hand stitched with a contrasting colour waxed thread. A perfect choice for an old Rolex or similar vintage watch.
This design has a strong taper and the strap's width reduces by 4mm at the buckle (for example the 22mm version measures 18mm at the buckle).

I bought this strap with blue stitching to wear on my Omega Seamaster. The overall quality of the strap is quite good and I really like the amount of taper on the strap as it provides a little more slim feel on the wrist. The color of the strap itself is a really beautiful cognac color that has picked up some lovely patina just from the few days that I've worn it. Fit and finish seems to be just fine.
All that being said, there are a couple of places where I think this strap could be better:
1. The Buckle: While suitable for use, it feels a little flimsy to me and looks a bit cheaply-made. I think having a little nicer buckle would be a welcome upgrade, or offer a variation without the buckle and let the end-user put their own buckle on it.
2. The Thickness: This strap is WAY too thick. I love the way this strap looks and because I'm wearing it on a diver, the thickness isn't a huge issue from an appearance standpoint, but I find that it's extremely stiff and the thickness inhibits a comfortable fit. I also find that the "bulge" underneath where the buckle fits and the tail is tucked presses into my wrist causing some discomfort when using a computer at work. I think cutting down on the thickness by 1mm or so would make it fit a lot nicer and would cut down on the large "knot" under my wrist.
All-in-all though I think it's a nice strap. Especially given the recent sale prices.
Just had to leave a review for this strap, it’s awesome! The quality and fit are brilliant, I bought the red version for my Black bay red and it just looks awesome! I’ve now bought a second in khaki for my Speedmaster. Highly recommended
Fantastic strap, high quality leather, hand made. This is basically the same strap here sold as Simple Stitch Italian strap but in dark tan color option only.
I boughy two, one with khaki and one with beige stitch, providing subtle low-contrast and more uniform low profile appearance overal. The leather will nicely age into darker shade with wear and tear over time.
Currently selling at 18 pounds, it's a no brainer. Just ordered 2 more as spares.
Very good strap. Works perfectly with SARB033. Its seems to be a very robust strap so i hope it'll last for long.
This is a superb leather strap ! I have bought many straps from watchgecko and this is by far the best strap - it is thick leather and tapers very well with an and excellent buckle. The quality is second to none I have Coloreb and Hirsch straps but this is better anyday ! Wears beautifully on my Rolex GMT , Speedy and Seamaster
After getting my first khaki stiched version of this strap and being very pleased with the quality and the way it broke in (it does need some break in period but it's worth it!) I really couldn't resist getting another with red stiching. It's a very well made strap and exceptionaly good value for money, esp if in a sale! (Only problem is that I'm now looking for a vintage watch for my new strap!)
The box, enclosed cloth and 3 spare spring bars are a nice touch too.. All in all a class act!
BTW my original strap is now very supple and is starting to get a nice patina.
Very happy, many thanks!
After working in a few coatings of a good quality leather wax to soften it up a bit I fitted the stap onto my Seiko Spirit SBCA001. A very good fit; it looks fantastic and really suited the watch. Now looking forward to it getting a patina and further softening up. Great strap! (In fact I've just ordered another, with red stiching, to set aside for later as it's such a good strap and price.) Well done Watchgecko!
Good quality, looks nice on my speedmaster. However its thickness makes it hard to put on and take off, it also makes it feels stiff on the wrist.
