I like the band as far as looks are concerned but the latch couldn't withstand any pressure or it would come loose where it's pinned to the band. If you like to wear your watch very loose on your wrist and you won't be putting much pressure on the latch, you'll be good to go. Otherwise, beware. Luckily, I was able to remove the Hadley-Roma latch and put the Seiko latch from the old band onto THIS band. I've now got a "hybrid" band but it works perfectly but I didn't expect to have to do this and you shouldn't either.

The strap is a nice dark brown and may have a slight hint of red. I was looking for this particular darker brown color and this was the closest to the color one might find in a men's belt. The strap itself is made in China, per the package, and the quality is in line with such a product. I will admit I wish they would have made some small changes to the buckle and bands but it is still a great watch band as it is. The strap feels nice for something that is still new and stiff with this amount of padding in the strap. I added it to the watch this was for and it compliments it nicely, so I am satisfied with the strap.
