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.

Looks beautiful but wish there was a longer strap

This was my first time ever swapping strap on my own, and it ended up being easier than I thought it would. I achieved the look I was going for with my Seiko, and the cognac color makes the blue dial pop. I would say I have above average wrists in terms of size (watch face is 42mm), and I would be able to pull off a longer strap, which isn't an option with Fluco. Also, there is none of the Fluco branding or made in Germany that is in the stock photo, which would be nice to know.

Oozes quality and coolness

This strap absolutely injected life into my Dan Henry chrono that was surprisingly difficult to find the perfect strap for. The leather is supple but not cheap feeling (unlike the stock strap that came with the watch). Feels and looks very premium. I appreciate the little things like the taper and the fact the keeper generally stays in place. Great strap, everything I was hoping for and then some. We'll see how it holds up over time but I would have no issue buying again as long as the craftsmanship doesn't fall apart egregiously (which I don't expect it will).

well made and beautiful strap

This strap looks great on my vintage Luminox field watch! Love the patina already forming, and the quality control is great. Happy with this :)

Classic racing style band

Great classic racing style watch band. Good quality leather strap, just the right color, and order shipped quickly. Perfect pairing with an Omega Speedmaster Date. Can't ask for much more at a reasonable price.

Comfortable and Stylish at the same time

This strap, at 3mm thick, quickly moulds to the wrist comfortably. With 8 adjustment holes in the strap it's possible to get perfect fit, regardless of where it is worn on the wrist. The brown leather and natural color stitching form a nice vintage look, especially when worn with a field watch.
