Just got this from eBay. Genuine "Italian leather"...not sure what that means...feels (and smells) like real leather, but who knows. USA seller. Water resistant inner liner. Smooth texture (like Classic Buckle Saddle Brown). The buckle is very good quality. Look at this on eBay: https://www.ebay.com/itm/311640561866 Because my wrist is small (155mm), I did have to puncture an extra hole. Weight of Midnight Blue sport band = 27g. Weight of leather band + lug connector = 22g. Length of leather band is identical to my Apple sport band. So far, I like it.
