A Review of The Madison Watch Strap From Crown & Buckle
By: John B. Holbrook, II

If you're a member of the WATCH TALK FORUMS community and have any interest in watch straps, you've likely run across Thomas from Crown & Buckle somewhere in the forums - he's a very active member of the community. Crown & Buckle is also much loved by his legion of satisfied customers for providing high-value, high-quality products with customer service that's beyond reproach.

Thomas recently sent me an example of the Madison watch strap for review:

Here's my video review of the strap:

IMPORTANT CORRECTION TO THE VIDEO REVIEW: In the video I talk about the buckle being sewn in because the description mistakenly said that it was. In fact, the buckle is a removable spring bar buckle. :thumbup1:

You can visit the Crown & Buckle website and check out the Madison by clicking here ( The Madison has a retail price of just $38.00. Don't forget that members of the WATCH TALK FORUMS community can save 15% off the retail price of this strap by entering the code "WATCHTALK" at checkout - that brings to price of the Madison down to about $33.00.

Thanks for the review as always John!

I just wanted to reiterate that the buckles on almost all of our straps are spring bar buckles that can easily be swapped out for something else, in either another shape or finish. The only sewn in buckles we have are the GPF Mod Dep buckles, and all of those straps are currently on a blow-out sale for $10 each. (
