    Artem Sailcloth Strap Opinions

    Anyone tried one of these have any comments on quality etc?

    Itís pricey but Iím tempted to pair one with my EZM1.

    The strap length is perfect for my wrist size too.

    I bought one from the first batch and it was split at the sides on opening the box.

    To be fair, they refunded straight away but were out of stock after that so I'm still without one. Expensive and a long wait for it to arrive was my only other thought.

    Apparently they're 'The World's Finest Sailcloth Strap'. Quite a bold claim.

    Youíd think they could at least check them over thoroughly before shipping across the globe... perhaps I just stick with my £15 Ďsailclothí strap.

    Watchgecko do some good sailcloth straps, and there's always perennial favourite Brady.

    Thanks. Iíve tried them all. Artem are the perfect length for me at 115/75 hence the interest. I think the rest are a bit longer if memory serves correct.

    Having worn the replacement one they sent me for a few days I'd certainly not recommend them as it is falling apart already. Dreadful.

    Well it arrived today. Seems decent quality. Itís quite stiff though and will need some wearing in. Will see how it feels in a couple of weeks.

    Not sure Iíd say itís worth the cost really if Iím honest. It looks better than it feels. Maybe I expected a bit too much...

    I bought a barton sail cloth watch strap, £20 and very decent quality, plus they do odd sizes and some funky colours (if that's your thing).
    I'd definitely buy another
