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?

Seiko Flightmaster replacement strap

Excellent buffalo leather, it is very supple and doesn’t need to be broken in. I have been looking for a good strap replacement for my flighty because original is just horrific (just my opinion). I know a lot of folks are getting the green nato strap but I’m not a big fan of natos so this is a good alternative if you are looking for something different with a 21mm lug size.

Excellent quality, but recommended for 7” wrists and above

Very nice strap for the price! Supple, yet durable leather. I have a 7” wrist and it fits on the very last notch. I would recommend only for wrists 7” and above unless you are willing to add more holes to the strap. I purchased the Cognac strap and it is a very beautiful color.

Great strap

Very comfortable and supple. Elevates the look of the watch. Highly recommended!

Buffalo Strap.

The buffalo strap is just what I was looking for to compliment my IWC Big Pilot 43. The strap is very comfortable and buffalo hide so durable. You can’t go wrong with this strap.
