Minimal stitch straps

What is everyone's thoughts on the minimal stitch watch straps? The ones with just one stitch on either side of the strap at the lug? I don't see a lot of them on the what Panerai are you wearing today thread. Obviously the strap choice is very personal. I like these but they seem to be out of favor and wanted to hear the forums thoughts on the style.

Here is an example of the type of strap.

I like them a lot, and they can look just as nice as more conventional straps...

I know distefano makes great straps, but do these straps in general (not just distefano) use more glue in their construction compared to fully stitched ones? Does it make them stiffer feeling?
