    Thumbs Up Perlon Strap Review [Brand: Eulit]

    Living in Dubai, UAE; its a bit uncomfortable to wear leather/bracelet on my watches (specially from June to August), and I am a person that I like to wear all my watches around the year.


    Started by purchasing Cheap’sh Nato’s and Perlons, they where nice but I wanted something better. Liking the Perlon design more than Nato’s, started looking for recommendations from the Watchuseek forum and my friends, I came to know about Eulit is the ultimate perlon strap, with a structure-bonded perlon tape design and quality material being used.


    After couple of search on where to source them, I came across Watchbandit.com, with a discount code, it was a no brainer; plus they have a great post sale customer service, they where there when I had a problem with one of the straps I have ordered, and they solved the problem; highly recommend them.


    So Eulit perlon comes in 3 models:

    • Kristall (Thinnest) I got Black in 20mm size.
    • Panama (Medium thickness, you wont feel much difference compared to the Kristall) I got Gray in 20mm size.
    • Palma (Thickest, noticeable compared to the other two models) I got two,one blue in 22mm and the red one in 20mm.

    First impressions?
    Yes, they are much better in quality than the generic cheaper perlons available in the market (I don’t own all perlon brands out there in the market, so Im not gonna compare and/or say they are the best of the best). Having a generic perlon myself, you can straight away notice that the Eulit is softer in touch, and have a much tighter weave pattern.


    Durability?
    I can’t really comment on this, as I don’t have any history with them to say how long they will last but Eulit website states “Protected against dirt and moisture by the surface seal”, in addition, the PALMA being the thickest, you can straight away know its more durable, specially that it has a double weave design instead of single on the KRISTALL and the PANAMA.

    Both are Palma (Blue = 22mm / Red = 20mm)

    Panama (Gray = 20mm)

    Kristall (Black = 20mm)


    Fitment?
    They fit perfect and fill the lugs, no problems here. Being a perlon, almost everyone can find the perfect fit (unless you have a really big wrist, my wrist is 7.25 inch and its near the max. The models come in different lug sizes, which is very limited and I wish they create the Panama & Kristall in 22mm.
    Kristall 16/18/20 mm
    Panama 16/18/20 mm
    Palma 18/20/22 mm

    (disclaimer - I have two blue Palma straps for the following reason: The first time I ordered my straps, they where all perfect except for the blue one, it was 21mm instead of 22mm, a production defect, I communicated with watchbandit, they apologized for the defect, and sent me another blue in 22mm and told me to keep the 21mm as a good gesture, happy overall with how fast they responded)


    The Palma is perfect for 22mm watches (as these watches tend to be bigger, such as my Tudor Chrono and the Seiko Samurai); but at 20mm, even though comfortable, can make the watch sit a bit higher and some might not like that; I am ok with it as I wanted a red perlon for my Alaska Project.


    For 18 and 20 mm watches, Ill recommend the Kristall and Panama over Palma, unless you want the blue and red color.

    Buckle?
    They are perfectly fitted. Both the Kristall and the Panama have a similar buckle, stainless steel (as stated on their website) with EULIT engraved, its very thin and might look fragile, but maybe thats how it was intended to be designed, to be light and stiff (I will know in time how durable it is). Panama have a different design and the EULIT is printed instead of it being engraved, also noticeably thicker and feels tougher (I think it fits perfect with 22mm watches).

    Price?
    They are priced from $18 to 24$ on watchbandit (They offer 15% discount for watchuseek members, promo code: WATCHUSEEK), and I am the type of person to rather buy something good once, instead of buying a bunch of cheaper ones. The cheaper perlon I have (paid $5) is not standing usage very well, weaves are starting to open up, and the sides edges of the strap is ver stiff. Plus cheaper perlon use plastic material that is not as comfortable as the Eulit and sometimes makes your skin itchy.


    Cons?
    Size and color variation are lacking. I would like to see them expand their line and offer more summer colors that you can fit and match around your watches. Also the buckle, it does the job and I am completely ok with it, also maybe my expectations is a bit too high but its something they can improve on it.


    This is my personal review based on my own experience, I am not affiliated with any brand, I just wanted to share so that maybe it can help some members here get a better look at how Eulit Perlon are.

    What's the point of posting something on Tuesday without a SpeedyTuesday picture ;)

    I have to agree, not only the Alaska 3, even the Speedy Pro (black dial), you put any color leather/nato/perlon/rubber strap and it will still look great.

    Great timing. I was only looking at their site yesterday.

    Can you tell me what the try colour of the red perlon is like? On the WB site it looks like a darker red than what's in your photos. I'm hoping it's darker.
