Q: Do you sell 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.

Need help with sizing?
  • Inspect the underside of your current watch strap for width indicators.

Crocodile Grain Strap (Black)

Best quality leather strap for the money. Description is accurate as leather does appear to be calfskin and is embossed with crocodile grain pattern. Sarb033 Approved.

Band seems to be of decent quality, not great. Color? Meh.

I have to be honest about this one, the color is really tough on my eyes. It's more electric blue that what it it shows on the web page or the video it's featured in. Not super different, but page shows just enough gray in the color to tone down the rather "serious" blue. No go, it's all neon, baby. And it looks like a candy coating rather than a dye. I probably would have exchanged it for something else less aggressive, but I wasn't sure I disliked it as much as I do, so I installed it. I had to bend the spring bars due to the case I was working with having a curve in a bad place, so it really wasn't returnable. I'll try to live with it.

Great strap

So far, this strap is everything I wanted. It's classy, and makes my Orient watch look amazing. Will be looking at Holbert again in the future!

Measure Carefully! I’m pleased with this purchase!

Great color and alligator grain. A bit stiff but with wear it should soften. Fits very well-be exact when measuring!

Perfect match

Bought the hubby a watch for Christmas which had a metal links band. He doesn't care for those, so I went on the hunt for another band. The watch is a gorgeous sapphire blue with rose gold. This band matches the watch color perfectly and having the available option of the rose gold buckle sold me.
