Hello, I just received my strap that I ordered on Friday. Very quick turnaround, I really appreciate it. The strap is really nice, I love the color and thickness, and the buckle is excellent, can't wait to install it on my watch. The person who helped me on the live chat last Friday was excellent and answered all my questions. I will definitely recommend DaLuca to my friends. Thanks again!

I just wanted to tell you that this was my first aftermarket strap I purchased for my PAM 351 and I have to say you have set the bar quite high. I have been wearing the strap since Monday and I have enjoyed every moment of it. Thanks again for your attentiveness and your high quality of standards.

I received the Shell Cordovan NATO band from DaLuca today and have already installed it on my Lum-Tec Super Combat. I was glad to find a leather NATO in 24mm, since most seem to be in the 20-22mm range. The band is exceptionally well made, very comfortable, and looks fantastic with the watch. The PVD finish on the buckles is perfect, the stitching is clean and looks quite durable, and the leather has a very attractive look that sets it apart from lesser, highly processed and plastic-looking straps. I’m very happy with DaLuca’s responsiveness as well, I ordered the band on Tuesday the 13th and received it on Thursday the 15th – on the other side of the country.
I’ll certainly recommend DaLuca to my friends. Thank you.

I'm mad at you! I'm mad because now I want one of your straps on ALL of my watches. I only like wearing the two watches I've replaced with your wonderful leather NATO straps. I have the cordovan strap on a copper-faced Ernst Benz Chronosport and, as I suspected, it looks amazing. I didn't like the way the factory stainless band washed out the color of the face, but the cordovan is perfect! Thanks again for producing a superior product. I'm sure I'll be in contact soon.

Thank you so much for the cordovan leather NATO strap. It seemed a pretty price to pay, but in looking at other reviews and websites, I decided to go with yours, and I'm not sorry. I have it on a Glycine Lagunare, and have already received many compliments and inquiries about this watch strap. I'm so glad I spent the money and I'm sure I'll be buying from you again.

Thanks for being able to accommodate my request to size down a NATO strap to 21mm. The speed that you were able to get it done and ship it to my hotel while I was on a business trip was just superb! I can tell you definitely take pride in your craft and satisfying your customer's needs. If only there were more businesses like yours!
I've been wearing the strap for a couple of weeks now, and I have to say I am one happy customer. Money well spent! It's so buttery soft and the quality and workmanship is just excellent! I'm really looking forward to abusing it and seeing the leather age. I've already had a couple of friends compliment my watch and ask where I got it, and they were surprised to find out it was the same watch I've always had. Never got that attention with the old stock strap!

BEAUTIFUL STRAP!!---- (I actually bought the strap before I even had the watch because it was so awesome>) Also has that "old leather" scent which makes it even more special.
EXCELLENT SERVICE!!---- It was literally only a matter of minutes between the time that I sent my emails and your responses.
TERRIFIC WEBSITE!!----- Great pictures and extremely easy to navigate.
SAFE AND EASY PURCHASE!!----- I received multiple emails confirming and updating the status of my order. I was confident that my order would show up on-time and as-ordered.
I will definitely purchase from you again without hesitation when in the market for any more straps/ belts/ wallets. Can't wait until I get my PAM312 so that I can start advertising for you with my awesome strap.
It was a pleasure speaking with you on Wednesday. You are very knowledgeable and passionate about your craft. I received my custom made strap this morning (Friday -- less than 48 hrs after the order was placed). It is awesome! I absolutely love it -- So much so that I have decided to change its original destination and pair it with my Rolex 6263 "Panda" Cosmograph!
The strap most definitely gives the watch a different look and feel -- It is exactly what I was hoping for. I have already begun the patina process :-) Your turnaround time was remarkable. I truly appreciate your "customer" service -- Something not easily found these days. I will be back very soon to do business again and again. Many thanks!
Just got my second strap from you “ The Olive Man”, and all I can say is WoW!!. Love it man, it’s terrific. Just like my custom ammo strap from you, this croc strap does not fail to deliver on quality and workmanship. The subtle green and minimum stitch makes this strap a killer option for my base. Thanks again for superb customer service.

Just letting you know I received my strap for my BR. I must say it looks fantastic; it has a great vintage look that goes perfectly with the watch - It looks like a watch that Steven McQueen (R.I.P) himself would be proud to wear. Your excellent customer service and super prompt delivery added to my overall satisfaction. I look forward to purchasing more of your unique straps from you.
Paul (Melbourne, Australia)
Thanks for the fabulous strap you made for my Bell and Ross Phantom. It enhances the beauty of the watch in a way a regular rubber or skin strap can not. Plus, your artistic input was essential and invaluable. Knowing the strap is made from a vintage army pouch adds panache to my Phantom. And, of course, your prompt attention to my desire was icing on the cake!

Received the strap, and had it installed on the Louie that it was designed for. The band looks awesome, fantastic attention to the details that I wanted for this particular timepiece. Your customer service was exceptional, your talent rivals straps that I have had created in Paris for other watches in my vast collection. I will surely make use of your talent in the near future for other time pieces in my collection.

I just wanted to thank you for the custom made vintage strap for my Panerai 312. The strap is of the highest quality and detail and is sure to get plenty of wrist time. Your customer service can't be beat and I fully intend to be a repeat customer.

My two straps arrived with the postman this morning which was a great start to the weekend. They really do look great and both the Bumpinator and the James fit between the formality of the OEM alligators and the ammo straps with their “smart/business casual” style. I have already had compliments from people on the first day of wearing as they are both so individual. Whilst being relatively new to the Panerai brand I have dealt with a number of strap makers and you are up there with the best in my mind both from a product and a service perspective. It’s quite rare these days to be able to talk to the person who physically makes the item being purchased and many thanks for all the time getting the straps right.
