  • Step back in time with this luxurious retro-perforated French buffalo leather strap.

    You need a new strap to replace the worn-out one on your vintage racing chrono? Or perhaps you're buying our Racing Chronograph and want a luxury strap to complement its late-1960s style.

    Imagine yourself back to France in the 1960s, to a golden age of sports car racing as Jean-Louis Trintignant's Ford GT laps Monthlery's banking in Un Homme et Une Femme, and Ford, Porsche and Ferrari do battle in a series of ever-closer Le Mans 24 hour races.

    Now imagine unpacking your retro-perforated strap, enjoying the aroma of carefully selected French buffalo leather lined with soft Italian cowhide, and experiencing a bit of that 1960s atmosphere. Enjoy the moment; you deserve it...

    The experience only gets better. Like a driver getting into the zone as they lap Le Mans, the fit and feel of your new strap just gets better and better with wearing. And of course, being a Geckota strap, you know we've sourced the materials and manufacture with care. The result? A perforated sports strap that lets air through to your skin for a cool, comfy wear. It's a strap that, like winning those classic 1960s races, will give pleasure for years...

  • Reasonable strap, but ...


    A decent-enough strap; looks good and is quite flexible out-of-the-box already. However, the underside lining feels plasticky, the strap does not have a notable leather scent, and it kinda squeaks when twisted. Probably worth the sale price, but the italian-leather options are significant upgrades over this one.

    Not quite it


    Not what I hoped for. Looks little plastic and the funny thing is the sound it makes while twisting it. Looks and feels cheap.

    Not I'd hoped for.


    This is my 3rd strap from watchgecko and first disappointment. The strap has too much padding for a buffalo strap which is supposed to be soft and thin. It also has a very low quality inner leather lining. Overall look is not as fine as I'd expected as well. Pity.

    Top product, great buying experience.


    Black version with polished buckle adds a great retro sporty feel to my Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch. Add to that comfortable to wear, easy adjustment and excellent delivery performance means an all round positive experience.

    Lovely strap great service


    Lovely strap, excellent service (3 pins plus a watch cloth thrown in) . Has given my Raymon Weil 1 tacho (lime face) a new lease of life

    Super quality


    Super quality leather strap, prefect match with my Orient Ray II

    Ref my previous review.


    Also the buckle is rather lightweight and the tang of it flimsy.



    This is my sixth strap from WG and I'm a bit disappointed with it. The finish is rather shiny and it seems on the flimsy side, not really suitable to carry a watch of any substance. The lug end is not 5mm thick - as stated - but 4mm. At the sale price it's probably a reasonable buy, but it didn't suit the watch I had in mind for it. Pity.

    Awesome quality strap


    Couldn't be more thrilled with this strap, great quality thick leather, the black looks brilliant on my Omega Planet Ocean. Great buying experience.
