Very high quality construction and supple leather. A point of concern is this strap came with the older spring bars that do not have the double flange if you needed to remove with a tool (like if the quick release post breaks). Other than that, my quibbles are minimal. I would have liked the buckle to be a little more substantial, but it should do the job well enough. Also, I went with the signature strap style because it is the thickest offering, but this is still a rather slim strap. I would have liked it to be a tad thicker to compliment the thicker tool watch aesthetic.
Delugs makes great quality straps. This padded brown minerva box strap has a great texture that goes great with a matte dial. I opted for a butterfly clasp as well which works nicely and will keep the strap in good condition for years to come. I'm glad I gave them a try since (based on reviews) it is hard to find well finished and functional butterfly clasps that aren't very expensive. They're a bit hit or miss whether they fit just right, based on the lug-to-lug of your watch and the strap material.
Nice leather material, but it’s not a hit. First, I thought I sized myself correctly (using the insanely confusing sizing guidance), but I went too big. The band was good for the first wear or two, but afterwards, I feel it stretched a bit and now is way too loose. Second, the additional loop to hold the excess band slides back up against the fixed loop, making it relatively useless. This is a big pain considering I need it to do it’s job. Finally, the return policy here is rough. When I first tried the band, I worried about the length and considered an exchange. That thought was fleeting once I saw how strict the policy was and the fee that would be levied for a creased band. Hopefully, I can recoup some of my cost on eBay. P.S. > Only a 5% discount for a review? That’s pretty weak.
