Yeah it does. I have a few HR straps and they are good quality for the money.

Thanks. I've had one strap come apart where the spring bar goes through - not good! On that one, it looked like there was just a glued-down flap making the pin-hole.

Hadley-Roma are a good brand.

I think some are even billed as water proof leather (not sure about the one you are looking at).

Hirsch is another one worth looking into (I might have spelled that name right)???

Arrived, looks great. Unfortunately, the watch it is for also arrived, and it has 21mm lugs instead of 20mm as listed by the seller... Believe it or not, I don't have a single watch with 20mm lugs!
