SUPER soft! I really like mine.
I just got mine, it feels really light which makes wearing my watch all the more comfortable Although it fits perfectly I would prefer if it was a bit longer but then that's all my own fault for ordering the wrong size

I ordered it for a 21mm lug width but fits fine on my 20mm sarb033 overall i'm happy with the purchase
Just got mine and it is beautiful! Very well made - single piece of soft leather, nicely stitched, glue in the stitching not visible from "outside", stiff buckle. Great job! :)

The vulturepremium.com website has not been connecting for a few days. Until yesterday it at least showed up in the Google results, but it's disappeared from those as of today. Only if I search for site:vulturepremium.com do I get results, but the links don't connect.
Maybe his web provider discovered he's a Harvey Weinstein fan or a Donald Trump supporter? Or is Ted Su coordinating a DDoS attack? (Joke. Joke. Just jokes.)

I am in the midst of re-working my website.

Looking for help getting the proper size strap for a Seiko Alpinist my wrist size is 7 -1/2” ??

I would go with the 130/80
Thank you very much, Will
I want to get a new band for my seiko flight solar https://www.massdrop.com/buy/38533 but I don't know if the springs will fit correctly was going for a 22mm 125/75mm strap.

I don't see any reason why it wouldn't. The watch appears to have straight spring bars, so pretty much any 22mm wide strap should work. The only way there could be a problem is if the watch has really thick spring bars (I believe there's a few different gauges) and the strap has really tight opening for the spring bars. But I really would't worry about such an unlikely problem.
Hi, Do the straps taper? Thanks!
pyeekzero
nevermind, options are available for ordering.
@Vulture_Premium do you have a 18/16 option available?
Hi Will, What type of leather is this i.e is it cow, pig skin, horse hide? Thanks.

Wow, great service.. extremely prompt reply, I'm from the other of the world. Mulling over it :)
Thanks
The problem that I have with this "Badass Carlo" drop is that the photos show the straps lying flat on the table, without the sexy curves that are in the photos for the Horween and Tochigi straps.
Is this just a function of the limpness and flaccidity of the leather?
Cloaca
Massdrop chooses the photos. I provided a link below with a gallery of photos. A 2mm soft tempered minimal strap and a 3.5mm medium tempered fully stitched strap are completely different animals. I don't see how this is a "problem". They are different leathers so they act and appear differently. I wouldn't offer a junk leather strap. This is an incredibly nice and supple leather.
Any chance you'll be making a version for 23mm lug width watches?

Thank you so much, I haven't thought about doing that. Tried a size down once and it looked a bit off, size up should look better. Thanks again!

No problem! Actually, that would be the other option, to go one size down. Chances are the 24mm will fit perfect, but maybe it won't pivot as freely depending on how thick the burnishing ends up being. At around 2mm thickness for the strap, it shouldn't be an issue, but if it ends up being a bit hard to pivot on the lug, lightly brush the edges of the strap with sandpaper were the springbar goes on the strap ends to remedy the problem.
If you don't want to go with sandpaper, just fit the straps in the lugs and pivot them with your hand; the edges of the lugs should do the same job as the sand paper.
This is my first time buying straps. I am looking for a strap replacement for my Orient Bambino V2. I tighten the original strap to the 3rd hole closest to the watch. I have a 6.5 inch wrist.
I am thinking about getting 21/16 and 125/75 or 120/70
JingOli
I would go with the 120/70
Thanks, Will
Hello Everyone, I am Will of Vulture Premium.
Thank you for your interest in my straps!
I will be monitoring the discussion closely and will try to answer questions as quickly as possible.
For more photos, different views, and higher zoom of these straps, here is a link to an Imgur Album: https://imgur.com/a/lZlTD
To avoid any confusion, these straps are 5oz leather which is 2mm thick. These would not be well suited for big heavy watches. I will get a photo of the strap I have been wearing for the last couple of weeks soon to give you and idea of how they break in.
This photo is of a fresh Minerva Box leather strap contrasted with a little snap wallet I carried for 1 month:

This should give you an idea of how this leather ages and patinas. It really becomes quite rich and beautiful.

The strap in that photo is the caramel color? The other photos for caramel look more like Crayola flesh color.

Hi Will,
Ordered the brown strap for my Seiko Samurai blue lagoon without reading the comments first.. It has the following specs:
Case Width 43mm Case Depth 13mm
Would the strap pair well with it? Would have to cancel my order if you think it's a no go.
Does anyone know the size that will fit the Spinnakr Cahills that just dropped and if so what is the size.
BlackMax
The midsize (38mm) Cahill that dropped last week has a 20mm lug width, so either 20/18 or 20/16 will do. I believe the stock strap is 20/18, so if you want to use the Spinnaker buckle then 20/18 is your choice.
Razzcal
Thanks Razzcal
Thickness should be a standard line in the Massdrop specs for leather watch brands. These look a little thin, maybe a leather best used in leather NATOs.
Does anyone have experience with this brand or type of leather? I am always down for a cool new strap.
What is the thickness (in millimeters)?

What do you mean by "large cased"? Diameter? Thickness?
Robemmy
I meant a big heavy watch. For instance it wouldn't be a good strap for a Panerai Luminor or a Rolex Sea Dweller or something.
Might have to buy one for the Cahill diver I ordered. Would almost certainly buy one for my Malvern if it was available in 18/16.
