I see the pre V buckle on so many 22mm to 26mm straps now, that quite frankly it's getting to be boring. Personally, I don't find them that comfortable to wear and they just look huge unless you have a huge watch, like a Panerai, to wear one on. Stick a pre V on a watch less than 45mm and quite frankly they look silly. Any strap I buy now with that style of buckle gets swapped out immediately. .
