Better than I imagined.
The leather in the strap lives up to billing, relatively soft and supple but with a hard-wearing surface and good dark colour. Fitted like a glove to a recently-overhauled Citizen Leopard Highness 36000 Automatic (1970).
I couldn't figure out the problem of stains in the product description. :(
I had a special request for a particular clasp style which was sourced and priced very reasonably. I've bought a strap from another high quality Australian producer in the past which is beautiful, but this one surpasses that and was actually cheaper.
A very well made strap. The Minerva is beautiful leather too. Very nice texture, feel and colour.
