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?

Great Watchband!!

I ordered this watchband on a Wednesday and got it on Friday! Super fast and the strap looks amazing. Definitely would recommend!

Great replacement strap for my SARB065

I picked up the 20mm version of this Hirsch Merino black sheepskin strap, as I wanted to stop wearing the black patent leather strap that came with my Seiko SARB065. This sheepskin leather strap is noticeably more supple than the Hirsch Kent calfskin leather strap that I have, and conformed to my wrist extremely well, right out of the packaging. It is also obviously far more comfortable than the original patent leather strap. The subtle texture of the sheepskin adds some visual interest, while still making it a suitable choice to wear with a black leather belt and shoes. The polished hardware matches the polished surfaces of the watch's case, the included quick-release spring bars made installation extremely easy, and everything fits as it should.

Perfect Fit, Look, and Feel

I recently purchased a new Hamilton watch with Hamilton leather strap. I really like the watch, but the strap was not a good fit for me as the buckle side was too short. I ordered a new Hirsch Merino Nappa Black Sheepskin Leather Watch Strap from Holben's, and I couldn't be happier. The strap works perfectly and fits like it was made for this watch.

My Watch Deserved This Strap

Dear friends gave me an expensive Seiko in 1978 when I was accepted into medical school. This strap looks and feels great on my wrist as I care for patients with this watch in now the twilight of my career.


The leather band seems to be high quality and it looks and feels amazing. Took out one star as it is does feel a little flimsy and I doubt it will last for many years with daily wear. I'd prefer if the leather was thicker but for someone looking at a light option this is fantastic.
