    Two almost same but very different Hirsch

    There are two straps Hirsch from different sellers, but the same model.
    Different colors.
    Both made ​​recently, judging from inscriptions and some secondary information.
    Surprisingly significantly different textures of straps.

    Brown - solid, dense, slightly grainy.

    Black - small cracks, wrinkles (patina?) that appear when bent.

    How is it possible - so different leather (treatment) and quality from such a reputable manufacturer?

    Thanks in advance for any opinions and sorry about dust on photo.

    Confused Re: Two almost same but very different Hirsch

    I forgot to clarify - talking about this model:


    HIRSCH bracelet assortment - HIRSCH Armbänder GmbH

    Please compare your straps same model with my photos. What type? As brown or as black strap? Your opinion - the only source of information.

    Thank you.

    You realize leather is the skin harvested from a real live animal, right? Not sure what your expectations were, but both of those straps look awesome, and the fact that they're different is completely expected.

    I think the variance makes them interesting as well.

    I really hope they took the hide from a dead animal. Your way would be cruel.

    Many thanks for the clarification. I really needed a confirmation that such a huge difference is acceptable.
    This model is the cheapest of Hirsch alligators. Perhaps more expensive models have a more predictable texture?

    Maybe even a little too interesting As lottery
    It seems that it is necessary to ask the sellers detailed photos before buying from Internet.

    Honestly, they look fantastic. One of the attractions of a natural product is that no 2 pieces are alike. I doubt you will find more consistency by spending more.
