This was one of three straps I bought and they won’t be the last. Really happy with the quality and the feel.
I bought this strap to pair it with my Longines Big Eye Chrono and I found it a perfect match. No need to break in. For me, I could do without the slight padding, but this is just a matter preference and maybe thickness of the watch case.
Will come back for more - I‘ m looking at you, Babele ...
