Want exceptional quality We offer the best: ColaReb, Di-Modell, RIOS1931, EULIT, Fluco, Hirsch, Hadley-Roma and deBeer. Shopping for your Apple watch Many of our leather bands are available in 22mm, the perfect size to use with our Apple watch strap adapters.
Tanneries have become renowned for the quality of their watch strap leather and are sought after by the most expensive brands. Some have branched out into more unusual leathers; ostrich leg leather, with its distinctive markings and robust nature, is one alternative gaining popularity.
As watch strap specialists, we at WatchGecko pride ourselves on the range, quality and accessible pricing of our leather watch straps, and offer everything from retro-style, perforated leather straps in classic racing design, to dressier straps handcrafted from top quality, handmade leather from recognised tanneries around the world. We have leather watch straps to suit almost every style of watch, and measurements to fit all wrist sizes. While we only use top quality leather for any of our straps, we keep the principle of providing this quality at excellent value close to our hearts, and all our straps are accessibly priced.
The second measurement to take is the length of the strap. There are actually two measurements to take here: the tail end buckle end, with the tail end being slightly longer. You will see this written as two figures separated by a stroke: for example 120/80 would be a watch strap that was 120mm long at the tail end and 80mm long at the buckle end. Now to decide the length of strap you need, simply wrap a tape around your wrist and measure it. As a general guide, a large wrist of around 220mm might want a strap with a length of 145/90mm, while a smaller wrist size of around 150mm might buy a strap that is more like 120/70mm.

We created the Custom Cordovan Button-Stud Watchband, (the first button-stud watchband on the market) and launched it with our first products in early 2012. A couple months later, we introduced the adjustable button-stud band, allowing the same simplicity and comfort of the custom band, but sized to fit any wrist, (and if it doesn't fit yours, we'll get you one that does) while maintaining a sleek look of the original by hiding the adjustment holes behind the watch face. Since then, we've had a LOT of imitators; so it looks like we're doing something right.
Offered here in Horween Chromexcel, Veg Tan, and Latigo leathers. Top-shelf Shell Cordovan leather options also available. For a ready-made watch & band combination, see our currently available pairings with select watch faces.
As to the leathers we use: The super short answer is Horween Leathers in Chicago, and because we're leather geeks we want you to know exactly what you're getting--it's so much more than just the color of the leather.
I needed watchband I wouldn't feel under my wrist when I set it down between bouts of typing or video games, and this band does that perfectly. I barely even notice it's on my wrist at all, and the black hardware and brown strap go perfectly with my black watch dial.
A few quibbles: - This watchband will not work for big wrists. I'm 6'3\" with average wrists (can just touch my thumb and middle finger wrapped around my wrist), and the last hole barely fits me.
- At first I thought the leather was a bit thin, but then realized it's almost too thick to get between my watch and watch pins. So I think they actually had a good tradeoff here. Just a note to suspend judgement on the leather thickness until you install on your watch.
Positives: - The color is what I was expecting- The leather is comfortable and is breaking in nicely like high quality leather should- I can see this band getting better with age. I have a few scuffs already (especially around the button/stud) and think it adds character
The quality of the 2 bands that I received from FFF was fantastic. I love the minimalist design with top quality components. The Chromexcel leather is amazing and the band is so comfy to wear. I chatted with them via the built in chat function with a few questions and they went above and beyond to help me decide what band to get. If you're on the fence, just order one; you won't be disappointed with the product or customer service that you receive.

For our 2021 update, Haley Perry researched dozens of watch bands and tested 15 of them to find options for an even wider range of needs and occasions. These included vegan leather alternatives, bands designed for intense workouts, jewelry bracelets, and slim bands tailored more for smaller wrists.
For our first round of testing, we took 15 leather straps, three Milanese loop-style bands, and six metal bracelets to watch experts and asked them to consider the quality of the bands compared with both Apple Watch straps and watch bands in general. They examined the look and feel of each band, and they helped inform us on style trends and other things to look for, including small details, such as if the band slides around on the lug or how it tapers. (One thing that stood out as especially important with leather bands was stitching. Good stitching helps make a band more durable than bands that are glued or otherwise fused together.) In subsequent tests, we panel-tested a handful more in each category and also tried silicone and nylon bands.
Apple announced new watches today, the Apple Watch Series 8, the Apple Watch SE, and the Apple Watch Ultra. The Series 8 and the SE will both be available with 41mm and 45mm case sizes, and our current picks should fit these. However, the Apple Watch Ultra has a bigger, 49mm case, and only watch bands in 44mm and 45mm sizes will be compatible with it.
The Belkin Classic Leather Band is made of nice, supple leather, but its leather pieces are fused together rather than stitched. If you prefer that look and accept that it might not last as long, this band is one of the better options. 59ce067264
