The leather is very soft. The finishing is premium. They have excellent customer support. If you’ve handled the OEM Shell Cordovan straps of Nomos - this one feels so much like that. I bought 3 shell cordovans. 2 for my JLC and 1 (this one) for my IWC Rake and Revolution 36mm Pilot Watch. I love all of them and will order some more.
Love this strap - pairs perfectly with the Nomos I had in mind - thin, supple and great quality!
The strap looks even better in person. I think the green/brown hue will go great with any vintage or vintage-themed watch. The stitching looks rather loud in the pictures but is a bit more subdued in natural light.
On my 16cm wrist the small (105/65) fits great with the tang buckle, and doesn't have much excess strap. If you have a similar size wrist but were considering a deployant clasp you might want to go one size up so you have enough strap to work with.
And kudos to the Delugs team for making such an easy-to-change buckle. Took no more than two minutes to swap out the brushed buckle with a polished one!
I love shell cordovan straps and have purchased others from Rios1931 and Fluco. In my opinion, the Delugs shell cordovan is the highest quality. It has a nice shiny sheen to it, which looks perfect of dressier watches. The olive green matches nicely with yellow gold watches.
Excellent quality, soft and supple. Colour is gorgeous.
