As promised in the review, today we will share with you another cool-looking, Horween style Apple Watch strap from Da Luca namely Muzzuti.

The Muzzuti strap

This watch strap is 100% handmade from genuine navy blue Horween Shell Cordovan leather with a dramatic two-tone design . It comes with traditional full stitching with high quality yellow-gold colored thread, and a Da Luca branded brushed stainless steel classic buckle. The strap by default is slightly longer than the Sophear strap which fits better for those who have strong wrists.

  • Length: 139mm/82mm
  • Width: 22mm
  • Thickness: 2.3mm
  • Buckle: Brushed
  • Material: Horween Shell Cordovan Leather
  • Adapter: Upon customer request
  • Ships with Apple Watch adapter screwdriver tool

Thoughts and impressions

The navy blue Muzzuti strap has a very rich look. It takes a relative conservative and traditional approach The strap has a less strong smell as the Sophear ammo leather strap. It is thinner with one single piece of leather of around 2mm. Therefore it is very soft out of the box that you don’t have to bend to conform to the wrist and leave breaking in period. Despite of the thinness and softness, the leather feels rigid and durable.

The strap is relatively long and I have to fix the buckle to the very end to make it shortest to fit my small wrist at 155mm. If you have a thicker wrist, it will not be an issue for you.

The two-tone design is a nice touch. The olive color tone on the inner layer looks pleasantly good with the yellow-gold stitch and navy blue outer layer leather.

Unlike the Sophear strap, the Muzzuti strap comes with a brushed stainless steel buckle which looks as nice as a polished one with more elegance at low profile. The classic buckle styles matches with the Horween, traditional look strap pretty well. But the Da Luca branded imprint may not be everyone’s favorite.

Conclusions

The $50 price difference did not make the Muzzuti strap a less preferrable option, but an even better value for money.The strap is not the most affordable option you can get, but definitely one of the best in terms of quality and uniqueness.

The good thing is, the design matches perfectly with both Stainless Steel and Aluminum Apple Watches as you can see in this review.
