    Rubber Lined Italian Leather Straps

    Hello WatchUSeekers !

    What would be your general consensus on Rubber Lined Italian Leather Straps? I've seen some well-known luxury brands do this, but I also see a bit of feedback from people saying that they prefer either full double sided Italian Leather, or a full rubber strap. i feel like a rubber inside lining and outside Italian Leather keeps the watch classy, while ensuring the longevity and cleanliness of the strap, but wanted to hear the general consensus here.

    Thank you !

    Similar to Hirsch Robby. I have recently re-shoed my Speedy with one of these. I like it.

    I love them! All my straps are Hirsch Performance line. I have a sensitivity to leather/croc/gator and having the rubber lining makes them wearable for me. It also works because I own mostly sports watches.

    Thanks for the responses and feedback. I realized that there is still a pretty huge crowd out there that would love to wear leather straps, but can't due to the sweat/smell. Will continue looking into this. Appreciate the feedback !

    Just for your info... The Hirsch Robby underneath side is designed to let air flow.

    Hirsch James on an Omega, rubber lined with calf leather upper, very popular choice by many.
