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.

My old Citizen never looked so good

I recently acquired an older example of Citizen's "Jump Hour" models, san's a complete bracelet. It's a smaller watch typical of the eighties - nineties era, most of which arrived with 18 mm steel bracelets. Mine came to me from Japan and I didn't realize there would be missing links. When it arrived I went directly to Holben's website where I found the Fluco Horween Leather band in Racing Black style, complete with bright silver buckle. It installed in a couple of minutes and it immediately transformed the looks of the watch. The fit and comfort are first class, no break-in period required. This is typical of the experiences I've had with Holben's, ultra fast service at very reasonable costs plus Mike never fails to offer suggestions (when asked) regarding possible bands to consider. You won't find a better place to buy your watch bands.

Phenomenal quality

I bought this strap for my Tag Heuer Carrera and am blown away by the quality and just how great of a pairing this is for my watch. 10/10


I bought this strap to put on my Omega Dynamic Date. This watch has been on all kind of straps, but this might be the best. The look and feel of the shell cordovan is better than most leather, and way better than the Ostrich strap I had been using the last year or so. I have it pictured on the wrist, and next to my wallet, which is not shell cordovan, but rather Horween Chromexcel.

The finest leather money can buy

Beautiful strap and a great price. Total value. Best choice for a sporty vintage chronograph.

I have 6 Fluco bands. Four of them are the suede Nizzas and I have two of the Shell Cordovans. All of them are very comfortable and work well with various watches. Fluco is a great brand and there quality is very good.
