Got myself a NOS Xemex Offroad. I must say I'm amazed by the quality of the leather strap.
Screwed lugs and buckle notwithstanding, the leather is baby soft and lined on the underside with a non-slip polymer material (I suspect its to make it impervious to salt and moisture. I think the strap and buckle alone is worth the money I paid for the watch.
Does anyone know what went into the strap? I've not worn any that even come close when it comes to comfort and softness. Not even the shell cordovan on my Seiko Spirit.
