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.

Extremely pleased

The Hirsch Kent Black calf skin band is the perfect complement for my brushed silver dial Omega Deville. And as a bonus, the leather aroma is intoxicating.

High quality

Ordered this strap and have had it for a little over a year now. Super comfortable and still looks new!

Ideal match for my SARB065

I wanted to replace the black patent leather strap that came with my Seiko SARB065, as I found that it was not a particularly versatile style, and had also gotten rather gross from years of daily wear to the office. I chose the 20mm version of this Hirsch Kent blue leather strap, and I found it to be an ideal match. To my eyes, this strap is a dark blue that still registers as dark blue in all but the dimmest indoor light. The color complements the watch's blue seconds hand, and the polished buckle matches well with the polished surfaces of the case. The included quick-release spring bars made installation a breeze, and everything fits as it should.

Totally lived up to my expectations

I had heard good things about Holbens bands and I was not disappointed with this purchase.

I needed a replacement for the original band on my Junghans Max Bill which was pretty mediocre and wore out faster than it should have.

This band has fantastic quality and looks. And I love the quick release pins.

I will definitely be buying from Holbens again.

Great Quality strap

The Herschel Kent is a nice quality leather watch strap that is perfect for most watches. The thickness of the strap is perfect, not too thin or too thick. Highly recommended for your new or vintage watch.
