If you recall, a while back I reviewed the Black on Black model from MVMT’s collection line. After a few emails and comments inquiring about the leather band option, I figured a follow up review was in order. MVMT offers 2 variations of their watches; leather or stainless steel bracelet, totaling six different variations. Keeping it simple, MVMT (or better know as Movement) uses the same case and movements throughout their collection, making only dial/case color and strap/bracelet your variables. I am not going to get into a full overview of the watch, as I already have broken it down in the previous review. You can check it out HERE.
If you recall my initial review, one of my primary issues with the Black/Black model was the bracelet. Not the issue with the leather band option. I find that the leather strap is by far more comfortable and suitable for this style of watch. Apart from being lighter, I feel the leather band will hold up over time longer than the black stainless steel bracelet. Now, most of you reading this will say “leather straps are always more comfortable than bracelets”, but I tend to disagree as I am a big fan of good quality bracelets. My only real concern with the leather band option would be the keepers. I am one that tends to be on the rough side of life with my straps. The keepers on the leather straps from MVMT tend to be on the thiner side, and if not careful when removing the watch, I could see them being “popped” easily. Time will tell.
Apart from the leather band, I feel that the color combination is quite suiting to fit a majority of one’s wardrobe. Personally, I have worn the White/Tan Leather combination to the office, with casual attire on the weekend, and on wrist a night out with the wife. I feel there is good versatile usage with the white/tan color combo, and a good blend for multiple seasons…if applied to you.
Overall, I like the White/Tan Leatehr option from MVMT over the Black/Black line all day. I’m not saying I would never wear the Black/Black, as a I do make good use of it, I just prefer the leather strap option from their collection. And let’s face it, there’s going to be many enthusiasts out there that are going to complain about the price of the timepiece. The leather band options from MVMT ring in at $95 with the stainless bracelets at $100. While I will say there are plenty of quality brands out there that offer timepieces at a comparable price, MVMT offers a clean, fashionable timepiece that, if your style, will be a great addition to your collection.

I look forward to seeing their next line of watches.
