    And how is the quality?

    Edit - I see you may not have bought the same strap.

    I have just bought the Crosby so will feed back but I'm sure it will be pretty good as most of the WG straps are.

    Did you receive the Crosby strap? What's the quality like given the small price?

    Thanks for the heads up.

    If you order over 25 the post is free.
    If you sign up you get a discount code WELCOME with a further 10% off. Even the sale items.

    I think most of the cheaper bargains have now gone. Strap in the photo on my Omega Aqua Terra was 8. Its a Crosby brown/ivory. Quality is good. QR pins.

    Fitted on my 19mm or 71/2 wrist. 2 spare holes showing.

    Just ordered a few more straps from them.

    Not yet but the fella above received his. That's the colour I bought for the Siduna chrono. I might not wear it as tight as that though

    This is a bit strung out but a reasonable amount of information on quality.

    Use code LEATHER15 for 15% off 2 or more straps.

    3 Crosby straps and you just fall under the shipping, but add a 1 bracelet link from the sale, and you can get 3 straps for 21.40.

    I bought a green leather strap for my recently acquired Spinnaker Hull Chronograph.

    The photo doesn't really show it as well as it looks to the naked eye, but the strap really brings out the green in the dial.

    6.99 well spent.
