Initial thoughts - shit, it is too long. I need another hole on the strap. I've been meaning to get a leather punch as I also have a nice rally strap from Bandrbands that fell out of use because it was slightly too long. I am 0/2 on ordering straps where I have to specify the length.

Beyond that - this strap is beautiful. Love the look and the patina is sure to only deepen over time. I want to put this on not just my Glycine but both of my Steinharts, could play on the Hamilton Khaki Field, as well. The leather and stitching both feel very high quality.

Assorted thoughts on this Glycine (which is my first experience with the brand) now that I have had it for some time:

- Great bang for your buck, maybe more so than any other watch I own. Granted, I paid 30% of the MSRP.

- It has the best date complication of any watch I own. It turns over immediately and with an extremely satisfying click.

- Glycine does a nice job dressing up the ETA movement (http://calibercorner.com/glycine-caliber-gl-224/) and it keeps impeccable time, way more accurate than they rate it.

I do like that Glycine. Check out Nick Mankey Designs "Autumn Harvest" Redux stud band. Almost a camo look and highly adjustable. I have three of his bands and very happy with all of them. https://nickmankeydesigns.com/shop-2-watch-accessories/
Ordered one a couple days ago for my Oris :-)
His straps are great, and he offers the harvest in 19mm.

I have only one watch with a 19mm lug and I often have to select 18mm straps to get the look I want
