The Camouflage Performance watch strap you didn't see coming.

The 2020 Hirsch releases continue with this new Performance watch strap called John. Available in two colours, either a Green Camouflage or a Blue Camouflage in either 20mm or 22mm and just the one length option (120mm/80mm).

This Camo strap trend isn't showing signs of slowing down and the John is testament to that. As with all of the Hirsch Performance watch straps, the John is made from their signature breathable caoutchouc rubber lining and paired with an all new multi-coloured caoutchouc upper.

Comfortable from the get go

As with the other Hirsch Performance straps, the John is really comfortable from the get go. For those that don't normally like rubber straps, the performance range is one that is worth trying. They are a lot more breathable than a standard rubber strap. We have fitted the John to an Oris 65 Diver and it looks and feels great.

Better suited to an active user

As you can see pictured here, the John doesn't have stitching which is similar to the Hirsch Arne. The lack of stitching and vivid colour-ways mean this strap is better suited to sport watches and better suited to an active user. If you are looking for something which you can wear everyday that still has the same comfort then we would suggest the Hirsch James or Hirsch Paul which are a little more smart-casual.

Changing the straps is really simple

All of the Hirsch John watch straps will come with quick-release spring bars which means changing the straps is really simple. Use your nail or a tweezer to compress the spring bar and pull the strap away from the watch. This method is preferred by some but not others.

Maximum comfort

Coming standard on the sturdy Hirsch HCB buckle which you can have in a choice of Silver, Gold, Brushed or Black. Pin buckles not your thing? We also make the straps available with a sport deployment clasp for maximum comfort.
