    Nice strap, I like the feel, but I needed to make three more holes and the extra material touches the other side of the lugs.

    Great look and feel!!


    Love it. Great look and soft leather from day 1. Used it as replacement on my Wenger Swiss Army Watch. The only downside is that even while the watch specifications said that the width is 20mm, it seems to be more 20.5-21mm. Therefore I had to use the original springs as the ones which came with the strap were not holding it tight enough and there is a 0.5-1mm gap. But I cannot blame the strap for this...

    Quality strap


    Bought this for my Sinn 556 I and wanted to wait until I wore it awhile before giving a review. It was soft and very comfortable from day one and did not require a break in period. It has a quality look and feel to it and I will be buying another one to keep as a reserve.

    again good quality strap


    Ordered in brown, it gives vintage and casual style to my K1 V27. Strong but also flexible, it's confortable strap. Very good surprise for me.
    Two (small) complains:
    - a "sand" color could be good with K1 V27 dial, the current brown is more "honey".
    - additional hole is needed for small wrists (mine 17.5cm), as holes are not round, it's difficult to make it ourself.



    Brauchte ein Armband für mein TW Uhr. Dieses ist absolut gleichwertig und qualtitativ gut verarbeitet. Vom Preis wesentlich günstiger. Würde es sofort wieder kaufen.

    Great strap.


    This is a great quality strap that I would highly recommend.

    It's maybe a touch brighter in colour than the Amazon picture suggests (at least on my monitor) but it's not garish. Really good quality leather and is showing no signs or wear after 3 weeks. The joins between the inner and outer leather are solid and not splitting at all yet. Stitching is really tight and has no frays at all.

    Overall a really high quality product that I'm really pleased with.

    Transformed my watch

    Looks great, feels lovely


    Great quality leather and looks well built. Mine came with 4 spare pins to fix it to the watch which was great too.
    Size fits my wrist but I'm down to the last but one hole.
    No complaints- looks great and feels lovely.

    It's ok. I could do with another hole in ...


    It's ok. I could do with another hole in the strap as its too big for my wrist and I haven't got small wrists just average. I wish I'd bought the proper one.

    fantastic quality.


    Bought this as a replacement for my Tw Steel watch. The official strap was upwards of £60. There is identical in every way except less than a third of the price. Absolute bargain, fantastic quality.

    A very good value alternative to the official TW Steel strap (which retails around £40).


    The signature two rivets match very well with the original as does the white stitching. The differences are:
    1) the strap end is pointed whereas the original is rounded,
    2) the leather finish is smooth and not patterned like the original
    3) the inside of the strap is a light cream colour where the original is black and
    4) (biggest difference) the buckle is NOT TW branded and is noticeably smaller. HOWEVER, top tip - the buckle is held on on both straps with a springy pin just like the strap pins and so it is a simple matter to swap over the buckle to the new strap.

    Once you've done this and are wearing the watch, most people would be hard pushed to see a difference.

    I'll be buying again when my other TW Steel watch needs a new strap.



    Great strap, high quality and most importantly very comfortable. Looks great against a black dial watch such as the pulsar PJN305X1 !



    Perfect, high quality leather, fast shipping. Good for pilot style watches

    Five Stars


    Great quality strap, brought for a Sinn 356 and it's just the job!

    Great strap


    If you are a guy or a girl with small wrists like me, you might need to open some extra holes

    Five Stars


    Just perfect. No complaints.

    Very nice strap.


    A very nice strap. Good quality and comfortable. I have a 7 inch wrist and I'm on the smallest or first hole! The leather is soft and comfortable, the rivets do not show through on the other side (so are probably decorative rather than functional). There are no sharp edges on the buckle. It also came with 3 good quality spring bars.

    Five Stars


    Made an average Watch look really expensive.

    Brought for pebble smart watch


    Bought this watch strap for my pebble smart watch. It fits perfectly with the watch and looks great. I gave four stars as wear and tear started to show after 6 months. But to be honest at this price I would just buy another one

    Good Quality


    These are my initial impressions after a few days of ownership. If my opinion changes I'll update the review (if I remember). I got this strap to replace the steel bracelet on my Seiko SNZG13. It feels really nice – very soft and supple, with nice edge finishing and a solid buckle. It's also comfortable and doesn't require any breaking in. The only downside I can see is the colour, which doesn't quite match the photos in daylight, where it looks rather more orange than brown.

    Great strap, much cheaper than the OEM


    Great strap, much cheaper than the OEM, yet not as good quality. You get what you pay for would recommend.

    Decent replacement strap for Pebble


    Nice strap I've used as an update to my original Pebble. Fitted quickly and easily. I'm pretty sure it's not solid leather (especially at this price!) as looking through the strap holes you can see at least three distinct laminated layers. The white stitching on the top doesn't extend all the way through to the other side. I can imagine in a year or two, it might start to look a bit ratty rather than the characterful wear of a higher quality leather strap, but that's probably just time to upgrade again.
