One of the greatest luxuries of working with leather is the connection forged between man and nature. Nothing brings us closer to our roots than working with the materials nature provides. If you’re an artisan with a particular appreciation for that all-natural relationship with leather, our English Tan watch straps will perfectly meet your needs. This leather, more than any other leather we offer, showcases the original animal hide—a little piece of history that you can carry with you on a daily basis.

Excellent handiwork as usual. One significant issue that I notice is that the "keeper loops" are much larger than the strap and they fall off when the strap is open... I've nearly lost them twice. Otherwise I am pleased with this product.
I used this handsome strap on my Timex Expedition watch and it looks and feels great! The strap that came with the watch was short and uncomfortable.
The fact that this is a hardy strap that comes in three sizes is what drew me to purchasing another watch strap from Popov.
I have been thrilled with every purchase I've made from Popov Leather.
Firstly I really like the strap and am very pleased with it. The leather is beautiful! I also had difficulty with the loops being too wide. It would be better if the loops were tighter holding the spring bar in place.
I fitted several coiled pieces of paper slightly shorter than the width of the strap into both of the loops to hold the spring bar in position. Afterwards the paper can be removed from the loops after affixing the strap.
I have been installing watch straps for years and I do have the correct tools. I am unable , so far, to install thisstrap on my Breitling Chronmat. The strap width is correct at 18mm but it is too thick at the loop, I'll try again later.
