Leather is as described. The quick release makes a huge difference if you change your watch straps often. Satisfied returning customer.
Everything was perfect on my first strap except a tiny small white speck which can't be removed on the strap, and its in a highly visible area. Slightly disappointed but not noticeable if you don't pay too much attention
Love the black craxy horse side-stitch strap on my Speedmaster Ed White. The strap is super comfortable and sweet looking.
