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.

Need help with sizing?
  • Inspect the underside of your current watch strap for width indicators.
  • Measure the space between your watch lugs (in millimeters) using a metric ruler.

Haveston Canvas Strap Fits and Looks Great

Received my latest acquisition of Haveston Canvas Series Forecastle Watch Strap. Changed the original to Haveston on my Timex Waterbury. The watch has black PVD coating that looks great with Havesron grey strap. Fits perfectly nice. Material is soft and durable. Thank you Holbens for great service and Haveston for a great product.

Forecastle Strap

Delivered incredibly fast!

Wanted to give my Khaki Field a new look and gave this strap a shot.

Feels great, looks great! Not much more to say!

Haveston canvas strap

Super cool tin case included with my strap. Very please with my Haveston Canvas Quarterdeck Strap. Goes great with my Casio Diver. Holben's super fast shipping. Awesome value.

Five stars all around (Haveston, canvas, Forecastlew

Can’t speak highly enough of Haveston, excellent straps and customer service. Love their canvas line in particular, my oldest is three years plus in and still looks great. Ever comfortable, and never had an issue with fraying, if that’s a concern. Just be warned it is difficult to draw the line at one, I am now into double figures.

Holbens easily my favorite place to shop for straps, just as with team Haveston, team Holbens is a class act. Again, excellent customer service, value and strap selection. Total peace of mind shopping here. Thank you.

I have sooo many watch straps and this is by far the best! The quality is in a different league than anything else you can buy. The color is true to description. The canvas is comfortable and manly looking.
