Great quality watch band. I got this to complement a seiko 5 blue dial and it makes the watch looks much more expensive / classier. The band is a bit on the thick side, which complements the watch (at least in my opinion). I would highly recommend a push button deployment clasp, it will make the band last longer, but seeing the initial quality I would imagine this band with or with out deployment clasp would last a long long time.

This is a really nice watchband. I have looked it over very carefully and I can't detect a single flaw in the leather. The leather is tanned beautifully. The buckle is polished to a very high degree. It smells like a new baseball glove. The leather is kind of thick and feels good on the arm, no sharp edge or scratchiness. Expensive, but, in this case, you get what you pay for. It makes my $60 Seiko look like a hundred dollar watch. Highly recommended due to the old world craftsmanship.
