    Picture Pulcher's Luxury Leather Goods sent me a "Colony 1st" watch strap

    to try out.

    The strap came in a carbon box:



    First impression? Well, it is a fine, well smelling leather watch strap that is smooth and comfortably soft. The strap is well made with raw edges to show the different layers:





    Here you can see the Colony 1st compared to the original straps on the Zuriner and Montres Militaire watches. You can clearly see that the sides of the Zuriner and Montres Militaire straps are painted, where the Pulcher's is not. It depends on your taste which one you like best (either you like smooth edges or you don't?).

    Time to see how the Pulcher's Colony 1st looks on the Montres Militaire:



    I'll let you be the judge, but I'd like the darker strap of the Montres Militaire better, more unique (see below). That doesn't mean that the Pulcher's Colony 1st isn't fitting the Montres Militaire. No, not at all. In fact the color of the Colony 1st strap works perfectly with the bronze of the watch.

    So how does it look on the Zuriner? Here you go:



    It looks great imho. The contrast of the color of the Colony 1st and the black Zuriner really is sharp. Please note that the above picture shows the watches in sun light, which makes the strap look lighter than it actually is. but you'll get the idea.

    My verdict:

    Personally I do not like all the printing on the strap. I like my straps more clean with soft edges. But if you like the raw edges, the polished buckle (can be changed of course), all that printing on the strap, the color, and you have the right watch for it, then this strap is yours and highly recommended.

    From the Pulcher's Leather website:

    Nice. A good looking strap.

    I like it on the Montres. Think it's a little light for the Zuriner. It may just be the photo.
    I had some of my watches listed, but then I just got embarrassed.
    You know, like showing up at the party dressed as a male stripper and realizing you're the only person who didn't get the message that it was no longer a costume party.

    I keep stopping by to look at that strap. It's really growing on me. I like the look of the hide, and the unfinished edge. I'm even getting into the cartouch stamped on it.
