I bought this strap two times:

July 2013

The strap was great! It had high quality leather and great pins - with easy to pull spring mount attachment. This strap lasted almost 3 years.

April 2016

The strap looks cheap and flimsy. The leather is low quality and cheapened pin mounting attachment. I am afraid it will fall off any time. They have kept the product id the same but cheapened the strap considerably.

My guess is a majority of good reviews are old ones. My advise will be not to buy this strap at this time.

Update July, 2016

Brought the rating to one star (wish I gave it zero). The clasp and the pin have such poor quality that the watch did fall off in the bus. Thereby I lost my favorite valuable watch. I am very disappointed.

This item is what I expected. A simple black "Genuine" leather regular length (18R) padded
watch strap for my cheap, er, inexpensive, Timex everyday-watch, model WR 30 M. A perfect
fit on the watch and my wrist. It appears to be the exact duplicate of the one I replaced.

The strap started out a bit stiff upon wearing but quickly softened up within the day. That
was to be expected and not problematic.

FYI: A "Regular" strap size, for this company, appears to be;
4-3/8" long strap piece with holes and,
3-3/8" long strap piece with the metal clasp.
ADDENDUM: As of June 2014 this every day strap is still performing its timely duties without
any problems. It even went to Ireland and back with me. Working good.

EDIT 01/26/17: After less than a year, these straps are already falling apart. Ever since I got into a car crash last August, the straps have smelled foul- kind of like motor oil and dirty socks. Every home remedy in the book hasn't worked in getting the smell out of these things. The inside of these straps is a light brown- this is fake and rubs off after a few months. Just the other day, the adjustable loop used to hold back one of the straps when the watch is being worn fell off. Today, I noticed that one of the straps has split open in several places on the inside. The whole system has been grossly compromised. It's a shame, too, because I really did like these straps, but they just don't hold up over time.

EDIT 04/14/2017: The strap started to tear where it meets with the lugs and actually fell off today! I would have lost my watch if someone walking be hind me wasn't such a nice person. Overall, I recommend looking elsewhere.


Good straps. They even come with their own pins. I used mine on a Seiko 5, and I think that it looks great.
One con with these straps is that after a few months, the leather tends to fold at the point where the straps "pin down" if that makes sense. It probably doesn't.
Anyway, I recommend these straps. I'm wearing them right now as I write this review. Exciting, I know.

I chose this strap because I needed something of decent quality that came with new Bar Pins to install on my Swiss Army Watch and noticed it was a good seller on Amazon. SO FAR NOT IMPRESSED.

* THE BAR PINS ARE SUB-PAR MEASURING AT 1.5mm - If you have any watch worth $50+ dollars the Bar Pins should have stronger spring tension that come only with the thicker better quality diameter measurement of 1.8mm which is the Par measurement for Bar Pins & minimizes the chance of losing your High Value Watch!
* The Buckle looks cheap & flimsy - since it is a man's strap it should be slightly thicker which improves the strength and gives a look of slightly more masculinity.
* The Strap itself looks fine and of decent quality but after reading some reviews recently some people said the strap didn't last a year. I swim daily so if this Strap falls apart anytime less than 1yr - Trust me.... I'll be demanding a full refund.

I am quite pleased with my Voguestrap leather watch band. The strap is better quality than my previous band that I bought at a local store here in Dallas two years ago, but I paid 2/3 less this time around and Amazon delivered it to my door in two days' time. I don't know how Amazon and its supplier are able to fulfill an order this small, but they did, and I don't want to say anything more for fear they might change their policy. This handsome watch band is made of polished, padded leather on the topside and a beige "Genuine Leather" liner on the underside. An UNHERALDED FEATURE that I really appreciate: The spring pins are already in place in each strap, and each spring has a tiny lever that can be pulled back with a fingernail to easily lock the pin into place in the receivers of the watch. If this band lasts no longer than two or three years, I will have no complaint coming.

I needed this because when I went to get my belt repaired (it was passed down from generation to generation in my family) I needed leather to fix it with. That is when I found this product. The price and material made this the best product to get for the price.

-The perfect color for my belt
-matched the material of my belt and was VERY comfortable

-kind of wished if the leather didn't rub off
-felt like it wasn't real leather
-wouldn't recommend for long time users

I would recommend this product for anyone who needs a belt strap.

Perfect fit for my Timex watch, but the strap is a bit shorter than the original. This means it isn't always captured by both loops, but it's not a big deal because my wrist isn't that large.
It would help if the length of this band was published, and if a longer one was available.

I bought this band nine months ago to mount on my newly purchased Citizen Men's BM8180-03E Eco-Drive Stainless Steel Watch with Green Canvas Band. I wanted to replace the ugly green canvas band that comes with the watch. I used the spring bars from the original band to mount this replacement. Everything went smoothly It felt great, was not stiff from the first day and I was very happy when it arrived.

The bad news: I wear this watch nearly everyday. The band wore out much quicker than any other leather watchband I have owned. See my pictures.

So, for less than 10 bucks, it will do the job. Just don't count on it to last as long as others.

I had same product lasted for more than 3 years rough use. Professional looking and quality product for affordable price. Easy to use. Would recommend this product. The fact is I bought this again after 3 years.

I thought this was a one-size-fits-all watchband for women's watches, but it's way too big to replace mine (basic Timex), It may be a man's watchband, not sure. I'm trying to decide whether it's worth it to ship it back or whether it's just throwing good money after bad. I guess I should have paid more attention to measuring my band instead of thinking *one size fits all* would work.
