Hirsch Leather Strap
« on: December 25, 2016, 06:06:35 PM »
After getting my speedy, i searched around for nice leather strap, but couldn't find any of my taste.
Happily however, i found what i like through an online shop.
Without hesitation, i place an order, hoping it to look as good as per advertised.

a happy moment when the parcel arrive


open up and see it for the first time


color & quality is as what i expected


can't wait to put it on


having a little fun before i secure it on my speedy


swap the original tang buckle with a butterfly deployant buckle


done


ready to rock


ta da!


thanks for viewing..

Hirsch leather straps are well made, I bought one from Red Army Watches previously. One of the best quality ones I've owned to date. Enjoy and it looks great with the speedy!

I have just bought a brown Hirsch Rally for a vintage Breitling and the brown is a little dark/ uniform for my liking. I know i could wait and let time do its thing, but have any of you guys ever tried lighten or age a strap before? If so, how did you do it? Did it work?

Hi DannyBeky,

I've tried lightening leather straps with a light sandpaper. It works to scuff it softer and if your strap is glossy, makes it matt. However, do this slowly.

After that, I usually let it be for a while before I rub some leather balsam on it.

If I'm darkening a strap, I add some oils (mainly mink oil or coconut oil) to the parts.
