This time round I had the opportunity to try out a classic Suede leather strap from strapsco.com. I have a 22mm grey and a 20mm tan specimen here. Let’s take a look.
This strap is soft and has a nice matte finishing. It is 120mm at the long end and 80mm at the short end, excluding the buckle. It has an ideal thickness of 3.5mm, making it suitable for both elegant and sporty watches. It tapers 4mm from lug end to the buckle end. The 22mm model that I have tapers to 18mm and the 20mm model tapers to 16mm. It comes with a stainless steel buckle and quick release spring bars for easy installation and removal.
The back of the strap is lined with a layer of soft leather which is comfortable to wear and provides resistance to moisture. It is stamped with the strapsco logo.
Below are pictures of my watches on the Classic Suede Leather strap.
The Classic Suede Leather Strap by strapsco.com is a very well made strap. Being different from standard leather straps, the suede material gives the watch a very different feel. The 4mm tapering makes it suitable for vintage and vintage inspired watches.
Overall, I feel that this strap is worth getting for those who want to try something different from the standard leather strap.

Has anyone bought a Seiko diver watch 7S26 at full price direct from Seiko and found that it was not only not manufactured in Japan but that the model was discontinued years ago? Another detail that is very bothersome for me is that that day date tab is in Arabic! It has English below but that’s not the point. I didn’t buy these watches to stare at Arabic script. Seiko customer service told me to ‘get over it’, that some of their watches have this ‘feature’. It’s unacceptable to me and in my view this is deceptive if not outright fraudulent product mislabeling. I’ve bought a dozen Seikos over the years. I will never buy another one. Sold by Seiko as a discontinued model made who knows where with Arabic script on the dial.
