Excellent Horween leather, as expected, since this is not the first time I bought a Horween leather strap from Nomad. Listed as tan color; however, the color is more like dull brown (also called grey brown, pastel brown, brownish grey, dark taupe). Still good, it matches well with my field watch, almost khaki in appearance. Will probably try Nomad's pilot strap later.

Will be changing the buckle to a butterfly clasp, single wing, soon on as it arrives.

Excellent quality strap

Very good quality strap. Great price for a Horween Chromexcel leather strap. You will be hard pressed to find a Horween Chromexcel strap at this price.
The strap breaks in very quickly. Mine broke in after one wear and is solid yet supple and conforms well to the wrist. Very comfortable!
Its matt finish makes it versatile and can be used in both dressy and more casual situations.
I like it so much I’m considering getting the brown strap as my next purchase!


The leather is a little stiff as it’s still new and that’s fine, but there were some dents in the strap when it came. Also quite disappointed that I need to punch a hole in the strap on my own as it’s too big (for ref, my wrist is 140mm). Nonetheless, a nice strap for more formal events.

Classic Horween Leather Strap in Chromexcel® Black

Stunning quality all around. Truly elevated the overall aesthetics of the watch. Super convenient that tools are sold too, making it a one-stop solution for those looking for an upgrade.

Love it

Was looking a strap to use for work as I usually use the fabric straps for exercise. And this did not disappoint. it was stuff at first cos it was new and all. but after putting it on a few times, it is sooooo comfortable. and in addition, it looks so slick.
