Two More Excellent Straps From Kain Heritage
By: John B. Holbrook, II

Kain Heritage recently sent me two more fine examples from their massive catalog of premium watch straps. First up is this calf leather strap from their Vintage Sub series - the VSub-705B (http://www.kainheritage.com/strap24mm/vsub705b.html):

I also ordered a strap specifically for my inbound WATCH TALK FORUMS Limited Edition Lum-Tec watch - this lovely blue alligator strap from Kain Heritage's Xiran Limited Edition Collection of limited edition alligator straps (http://www.kainheritage.com/strap24mm/xiranalligator.html):

Here's my video review of these two most excellent straps:

The VSub-705B is just $99.00, but Kain Heritage only has a few examples of the limited alligator straps ranging between about $140 and $150.00.

Not sure if it is my monitor, but that gator looks gray, not blue to me. Nevertheless it looks great and I am
sure it will look good on your WatchTalkForums watch - M61 or M62 LumTec.

I know we like our sponsors and appreciate their patronage but I find personally the price of the Vsub strap
quite high. You state 'The VSub-705B is just $99.00'....Just $99 for a calf strap ??
OTOH, I will admit - the gator quality looks superb and the price seems to be actually decent IMO.
I also do not care for the ornate buckles that stick out of the wrist, but I am still tempted to order one
of their Limited Edition gator straps. I checked their web site and they truly look amazing.

Don't forget that Kain Heritage does offer discounts for the WATCH TALK FORUMS community. :biggrin:
