    Happy Horween (or) It's The Great Bund Strap, Charlie Brown

    I think I've been playing too much Uncharted 3 lately. My trip to the watch store for a simple black strap resulted in this instead. Thoughts?

    Sorry, not for me, even makes your lovely Sinn look like a prop from "Cowboys and Aliens."

    But as long as you like it, that's what matters most of course. But you asked...

    Can't go wrong with a bund, and even better if it's Horween leather. Looks amazing on the Sinn, BTW!

    "Cowboys and Aliens", that cracked me up. Yeah, my girl hates it, thinks I look like Indiana Jones. I think that's a good thing. Isn't it?

    I'll probably flip it (although I'm sure I'll get eaten alive on that deal). May keep it. We'll see...

    You cannot knock Horween. They make all the straps for Nomos. Plus, this leather makes some killer shoes ;) By the way, love the strap.

    I've never been a fan of the bund style, so I have no worthy comment.

    I will say that the material will be iof impeccible quality. I just took delivery of some Horween CHRXL, an amazing leather product they offer, a line totally aside from the Shell Cordovan that most folk know them for. Can't wait to get into some of it, it's beautiful stuff.

    Actually Horween Leather Co. produces and sells the leather hides, and other companies produce the products like shoes, belts, wallets, straps....
    They have a great blog:

    Horween Alden card case and Garbarro Horween Bund with longer pads than yours. If you get tired of pad you can always remove it and use straps alone.
