I love my new leather band. I paired it with a Seiko SKX007 and it is a match made in heaven. I do not have a picture available but will try to post one later. I have paid three times as much for comparable leather work! Well done!
This is a very well made watch strap. The leather is relatively thin so that it contours to your wrist. It's comfortable and well made. The stitching is excellent, and finished nicely. The leather is soft, and didn't have any marks or blemishes. The edges seem a bit more finished and polished than the pictures suggest. While the strap may look casual, I think it can be used on any watch in any setting (office or casual). I'm extremely happy with the strap, and highly recommend it. The strap exudes craftsmanship.
The strap arrived as brightly colored as the pictures indicate, kind of a light honeyed-leather color which had me worried, but I know light colored leather typically ages well. After a little more than 2 weeks of daily wear the color has mellowed to a medium brown that I think looks great and I look forward to seeing how it ages over (hopefully) many years. The band is surprisingly thin but sturdy and comfortable, stitching on the loops looks like it will last a long time, the cheaper strap it's replacing was already showing cracks along the edges after a few weeks.
It may be possible to keep the bright color if the strap is kept pristine and free from any oils or debris, but that was never my intention so I'm not sure.
This is my second watch strap from Popov. I bought the pilsner one with tan stitching and put it on a Timex Fairfield. It dresses the watch up. Definitely buy from Popov if you are in the market for leather goods. The cost is extremely reasonable when you know you're getting a quality product for life.
Great product can tell it will last a lifetime and excel customer service as well
