Communication, delivery and quality of the strap is outstanding. I am a big fan of bracelets but Delugs has changed my opinion on straps. Really happy with my purchase and can't wait to put this on my Blancpain which is out for service. Hope to get more straps in the future too.
Ever since I got my Grand Seiko SBGY007 (Omiwatari), I've been on the hunt for a better leather strap. The default strap it comes with is beautiful, with black alligator material and dark blue stitching, but the GS deployant clasp is incredibly thick and I don't like the aesthetic of the 'tail' coming towards me. It took a while, but I finally found Delugs, specifically this strap. The quality level is indistinguishable from what is likely a $300-$400 strap from GS, it's slim and low profile with the tang buckle (I swapped in a GS tang I happened to have), and best of all, it's quick release, so I can throw my Omiwatari on my quick release metal mesh bracelet if I'm wanting to switch things up. The Omiwatari is my go to dress watch, and that means this Delugs strap will be joining me during many momentous events moving forward. The only way this strap could be improved would be if they offered subtle accent stitching - if this had come with dark blue accent stitching as an option it would be quite literally the perfect strap.
This is my 8th Delugs strap and I love it! I was really uncertain about spending the extra money to get an alligator strap, but all my other delugs straps were of great quality, so I figured I would give it a try. As usual, the strap arrived in record time. The strap quality is awesome, and while it’s super soft and supple like the other delugs, it does require a bit more of a break in period than the other straps (that feel perfect right when I put it on). The quality is wayy better than any other non OEM alligator leather strap I’ve tried on. If I had to compare it to the Omega OEM straps, I’d say the Omega ones are better, however, for the price difference, Delugs wins. I’m about to place another order for an Alligator strap in brown for my speedy!
The delug strap is well made and of exceptional quality . Looks great pairing with my new Kurono Toki. Will certainly add on other leathers in the days to come.
Just enough padding and the taper is phenomenal!
