With a pressing of white wax, the Oslo evokes a snow-swept landscape, dusting the rich brown hues that emerge from just below the matte-finish surface. The Italian cowhide has a hardy feel that wants to see some action of a field watch, GMT, diver, or chronograph. And anything with a minimalist feel goes great with the Oslo.
This strap has a white wax-pressed coating. The wax will fade as you wear the strap, revealing the underlying brown color. This process is the intended style and characteristic of the strap (not a defect on the coating).
