Q: Do you sell watch bands for women?
A: We do! Many of our short-length straps are the perfect size for women.

Q: Can you suggest a strap that looks amazing with my watch?
A: Unfortunately, because the range is so vast (and personal taste is subjective), we cannot advise regarding aesthetic suitability for specific models and styles of watches.

Q: I have an Apple watch. Will any of your straps work for me?
A: Sure! Our handy Apple watch band adapters accommodate most 22mm straps.

Q: Are spring bars available?
A: Yes, for each strap that is not already integrated with quick-release spring bars, we include one free pair of strong, seamless double-flange stainless steel bars.

Q: What strap size do I need?
A: To determine your size, use a metric ruler to measure the internal distance (in millimeters) between the lugs of your watch.

Q: My Bonetto Cinturini deployant strap is too long. Can you help?
A: Of course! See our Bonetto Cinturini sizing guide for cutting instructions.

Q: Do you offer international shipping?
A: Yes! Visit our Shipping & Returns page for more information.

Q: May I return my purchase?
A: Holben's Fine Watch Bands accepts returns of unworn, undamaged merchandise for refund or exchange within thirty days of purchase. Learn more on our Shipping & Returns page.

Perfect color and length

Love this strap and the fact that it comes in a shorter length. Perfect for a guy with smaller wrists!

Hirsch Boston Black Vegetable-Tanned Leather Watch Strap

I have 3 different watches with this strap. Can easily be used for casual to dress. The quick release spring bars make it so convenient for changing straps. A little pricey for some but you definitely get your money's worth. Makes my Long Island Watch Co. Islander model ISL 176 Port Jefferson really pop.

Great band great price

I love this watch band. I put it on my Hamilton Khaki Field Auto becuase the original manufacturer’s band felt a little stiff. What a difference! This leather is soft and very comfortable. And it looks great! Nice enough to use as a dress watch but not so formal that I can’t use it with jeans and a t shirt. Made my favorite watch even more enjoyable to wear. After a few weeks of use there is no sign of poor quality and the leather is getting a nice patina already. Highly recommend!


Such an amazing strap for the money. It didn't require breaking in. The finishing is top notch at this price(stitching, glueing, the buckle, etc). The texture is also really pleasant. The cream colored stitching matches my Khaki Murph perfectly. I took the shortest one, but i find it still a little too long for me. Overall I'm very satisfied and impressed by this strap!!


Nice thick strap, breaking in nicely. Looks great on my new Seiko SRPE.
