This is a single band, pass-through leather strap. Instead of multiple pieces, this single strap passes over the bars and under the case. Made from a thick 3-4mm Chromexcel strap, it is both a rugged and beautiful addition to any timepiece.
Made from USA Horween®Chromexcelfull grain leather
Hand-sewn with Tiger Thread
Strap fits wrists 4" to 7" in diameter (with watch face).
Strap measures 10 3/8" in length with buckle and 9 3/4" with buckle removed.
Ten holes spaced 5mm apart.
Includes matte finish stainless steel metal buckle and two metal keepers.
I've always wanted a Horween leather strap, and I was not let down in the slightest once I had received this strap from Popov. The leather is wonderfully supple without being flimsy, and is comfortable pretty much as soon as you take it out of the package. I can't wait to watch this strap age gracefully; the color is great too, even better than what you see in the pictures. Chromexcel is the real deal, and it looks great on my Seiko SRP715.
The craftsmanship is top notch. The stitching was perfect, the length just right for my average male wrist (I don't even have to fold the strap back into one of the keepers), and the holes evenly spaced. It should be kept in mind that this is a somewhat thick strap, and I had to switch to some skinnier spring bars I had lying around to get the strap to slide nicely between the bar and the watch case.
Ultimately, buying from Popov was a great experience, from placing the order, to the payment system, to the reasonable shipping time. I did feel like I had to wait a while for it to ship after I placed the order, but I don't really mind, since they don't start to make anything until you place your order. I would not have any issue with buying from Popov again.
I’m using this on my Timex Navi Ocean, and it perfectly matches the watch. The strap has a bit of a rugged look, although it could easily pull off a cleaner look if needed. It’s incredibly comfortable and is really soft leather. I’m super happy with this purchase.
Love this strap. Leather is thick and high quality. Hardware is solid as well. My only concern is that the buckle is much too small for the 22mm strap. When feeding the strap through, the buckle pulls at the edges and may cause it to fray with time. Other than that it’s a great strap, would buy again!
