Q: Do you sell bands for women?

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.

Fantastic product with even more fantastic customer service!

I have been searching for a Milanese bracelet for it Breitling Superocean Heritage for months. I had planned to purchase the actual Breitling strap, but quickly realized I made a huge mistake not just getting the watch on the mesh bracelet from new because it was only a $350 price bump and I could likely have gotten it for less, but now they want $890 for the bracelet by it self.
During my search I discovered that the same company makes most of these bracelets for all the big brands, and that company is Steib of Germany.
I found Holben’s who has the best selection of their products and most if not all in stock.

I will say the measurements listed from the manufacturer are far too confusing, I was convinced that the 2785-2785 bracelet would not fit my 6 7/8 inch wrist, and nearly ordered a different option. Fortunately Mike the owner of Holben’s answered my emails very quickly and assured me that in the event it does not fit I can return or exchange it for another option.
Sadly after placing my order and receiving the new strap I discovered that I was sent the wrong size from what I had ordered, I ordered a 22mm and was sent the 20mm so that would not due at all. Once again Mike was exceptionally fast with his response to my email, and even went above and beyond to send me a prepaid shipping label, and sent me the correct bracelet even before I sent the incorrect one back. Not only that, but in the second package I received a spring bar tool and an extra set of spring bars just as a way of saying sorry for the mix up.

I was initially annoyed with the mix up in strap size fearing, as most would, that I would have to wait until I returned the nearly $300 strap before the replacement was sent out. Not the case with Holben’s, Mike is a stand up businessman and good to his word! My replacement was in the mail the next day, and now that I have received it I could not be happier.

If you are in the fence about buying a new watch strap or bracelet for one of your fine watches, don’t be. A new strap can change the entire look and feel of a watch and make it feel like an entirely new piece. I have every intention of ordering more straps from Holben’s and I think my next one will surly have to be a n Erika’s originals which I have been dying to try but could not find a reliable retailer that had them in stock. Now I have and I’m sure many more purchases are in my future with this company.

Order with confidence, Mike will take great care of you!!

Sizing issues

From reading the description I was thinking I needed the long size. My wrist measures 6-3/4. Unfortunately it is too big and I can’t return because it has been installed. Quality is top notch! I will be buying the regular one, and selling the long one half price. Lol, now this bracelet will cost me $300 instead. Maybe I’m not measuring right? What’s going on here…

Perfect mesh bracelet

The bracelet is a nice weight. I put it on a omega aqua terra seamaster with green face. It does nice compliment of the mesh and watches face. Easy to install. Easy to adjust to your watch size. Really happy with purchase.If you like mesh look, great choice.

Staib heavy matte Milanese bracelet.

The quality, fit and finish is well worth the price! Initially I wanted to go with the polished version as to match my watch’s case finishing but ultimately I decided against that and went with the matte version instead. I’m glad I did, I think the polished version would have been too much bling. I went with the 150mm length and surprisingly it fit perfectly straight out of the package on my 7.3” wrist. There’s still room for adjustment so if my wrist size fluctuates over the years I think I’ll be fine. Anyhow enough of me rambling, I’ll let the pics do the talking for now 😊


High quality mesh, perhaps one of the best mesh watch bracelet in the world.
Worth every penny!
