    Thanks for the nice review.

    What about the hardware on the watchgecko's leather? I have couple of straps, which one of them is that on deployant clasp, in the cart but still reluctant to checkout.

    As for the straps on amazon, the best one i bought was the woven textured leather strap by swiss reimagined. The leather and hardware quality really worth the price.

    I'll have to write the rest another time, but please share what your personal experiences are!
    I wear a watch to determine the current time.

    If you're not going to carry it on a chain in your pocket you're probably going to need something to attach it to your arm.

    Still going on about that from the other thread eh? You need to go outside and make some friends!

    And some better taste.

    The buckles on the leather straps are pretty standard, about the same as you see everywhere. It's the same kind I see on $20 straps to $65 handmade straps from several different brands/makers. The medium sized buckles that you see on let's say their Jonathan GP straps are just ok. The curved surface looks slightly uneven but it is brushed and not that noticeable unless you are staring at the buckle.
