Bought one of these on eBay UK last week and it arrived today. Went for this one because from the pics it was black on both sides unlike some others that people had posted on here (which also looked a bit cheap and thin), looked pretty thick, and it had the 'round' buckle like on the Apple version. It arrived yesterday, and I'm really impressed. It is indeed black on both sides, the leather pattern looks just like the Apple classic buckle, the buckle itself is round and the strap is nice and thick. Also, less than a sixth of the price at £21. The ONLY issue is that, as you can see from one of the close up pics, the adapters have a black/space grey sort of colour. I emailed the seller to see if he has any with steel/silver adapters that I could swap it for, and I received this reply: ...so I'm not holding out much hope But I'll take that as I can always buy some more that would match.
