TUing this because $7 for a real leather strap is stupid cheap. That aggressive (and to my eye, not particularly realistic) patterning isn't for me. But at this price, this could be a disposable stand in until you can find/afford a better quality strap for that favored time piece of yours. I like to buy inexpensive vintage mechanical watches on eBay and they're often sold without any sort of strap. Or they come with those hideous 1970s Spiedel spring link bracelets. So I appreciate an affordable leather watch strap that will jazz up a watch.

FWIW, at $11-$13 (depending on the color), I think these are really good quality for the money. They feature a toolless spring bar mechanism that's both unobtrusive and very effective. They're real leather but aren't trying quite so hard to look like some sort of crocodile or lizard skin leather. https://www.amazon.com/Colors-Release-Leather-Fullmosa-Genuine/dp/B0719J3DZ4/ref=pd_sbs_107_3?_encod...

God, I sound like a shill for Fullmosa. I'm not, honest. I just think they're a good value for the money. Maybe they'll go on sale someday too.
