I really thought this was interesting. Never seen one of these before.
Most likely a '50's era strap.
It really appealed to me because most mens bands are to long for me.
Even with 2 keeps, there is usually too much band left over to catch on things,
which drives me nuts!
This band solves that problem for anyone.

It is certainly a funky looking strap. But that buckle screams 1980s at me.

You could be right, Jack.
It's just a guess on my part.
The raw backside suggests 50's-60's.
I grew up in the 60's. We used to joke about how everything was made in Hong Kong.
