The quality is good, and the strap fits nicely.
Pretty good value for money. I've spent double (Italian) and not get similar quality (highly rated by customers).
However, like many reviews here, I have an issue with the colour. I wouldn't call it navy, it's more like greenish-blue. More green than blue. The blue will only appear under very specific angle/lighting.
It's brand new when I wrote this review, if this review can be edited, will come back to add more information after it has been worn for a bit more. That said, the initial experience is that it wears pretty comfortable, the underside of the strap is a calf (?) leather which is very soft and smooth on the skin. The top side which is "oil waxed" will appear to develop many fine "cracks" when flexed, giving the patina and vintage look that many desire for their worn leather. This achieves that look with minimal wear and effort.
An important point to note, both keepers here are free and loose. This is as opposed to some straps where one of the keepers is fixed near the buckle. This may or may not work for you. On the bright side, the keepers should not break so easily as compared to the fixed ones, while some might not like the additional movement from the keepers. Fortunately, the keeper loops are sized nicely and will stay in place due to friction.
What I didn't like is the buckle, it looks cheap and feels cheap, you may want to swap it out for your own.
Good for the price. Part of the surface was already scratched upon opening of the package. Leather takes some time to break in.
