I got the Blue Jean Ostrich Strap for my Breitling Chronomat circa 1952 (with a Festina movement). Being a vintage watch, the strap had to be 18mm (not that common by today standards) and I was looking for a tone of blue and feel that would make the patina of the dial stand out. And this strap really hit the mark. I’m so happy with it. Having had a few Delugs straps, I’m always happy aby the quality of the manufacture at such an accessible price.
Visited the showroom and was attended to by Marcus. Was at a loss at the variety of leathers and design available til Marcus recommended the Blue Jean Ostrich strap. The strap was comfortable, soft and matches the watch splendidly. Have no regrets buying it and would definitely purchase more for my other watches in the future
I'm really enjoying this strap. The denim color is slightly understated from afar, but as you look closely it has many enjoyable details, such as the dramatic variation of the patterns and the color contrasts that accentuate them. The strap is also quite soft and comfortable, requiring no break-in.
The quality is impeccable. The color varied just a bit from the picture but that’s absolutely expected. It’s a gorgeous strap.
The thing I think could improve it would be to stock a 20/18 taper in addition to the 20/16 taper.
I know I could’ve ordered it custom at 20/18. It just feels like a 20/18 is standard enough that keeping it in stock would be beneficial.
Otherwise Delugs is amazing and the quality is fantastic.
I ordered this strap because I was a bit bored of crocodile pattern and most of my watches were 20mm. The strap shipped promptly and in immediately installed it on my watch(es). I find that it is best suited to my IWC Pilots Mark XVI. The leather was a bit dry at first but after some oiling and wear, it became quite soft and has a nice shine to it. I also bought a Nubuck Ostrich for my wife's Moonswatch but in general, the Ostrich straps are top notch. Will definitely buy again.
