I recently ordered a NOS vintage watch strap from an online shop in Neuchatel. I was trying to match the strap from my early 1990's Patrimony.
Anyway, this strap arrives and appears all wrong. The Vacheron Constantin impression in the leather is shallow and lacking the "Geneve". The stitching in comparison with the original is weak and glued in places where the original was also stitched. There are less adjustment holes. Lastly, the finish is glossy, not matt as ordered, and makes me suspect it might not even be croc!
Am I being paranoid OR have I been ripped off? Pictures are attached and opinions would be appreciated before I demand a refund.
