 -B.H. of Maryland


"I received the strap last week. It's amazing how you can tell the craft and dedication when seeing the quality of the finished product. Congratulations. And thanks for helping out with the short notice, I'll gladly buy more products from you in the future.

Wishing you success,"

-M.V. of Michigan


"Must tell you that I love the 2 piece leather strap you sent me, finally something that fits my wrist comfortably. Truly brilliant. Suspect I will be buying another in the near future."

-D.T. of Dubai


"Exactly what I ordered and hoped for...I only realized after it arrived: because it’s tailored to your wrist, there’s a small amount of slack left on the strap, you only need one “belt loop” to contain that slack. A pleasant surprise."

-D.R. of Illinois


"It's perfect!!! So comfortable and it fits perfectly. Thank you so much!"

-Z.W. of Michigan


"It looks and feels great! I will be wearing that watch way more often with your beautiful strap on it...Thank you for your beautiful strap."

"Thanks again. You're the secret weapon in my watch collection."

-M.S. of Pennsylvania

I wanted to let you know that my strap has arrived and it's simply incredible. The care, attention and quality you've put into this is fantastic. Best strap I've ever owned.


-G.O. of England


"Dude I love the strap!!!! Get multiple compliments about it everyday "

-H.M. of Texas


"Just thought I'd let you know that the package arrived safe and sound yesterday. I installed the new watch strap and absolutely love it so far. I love how soft and comfortable the leather is. And the fit is absolutely perfect. Thanks for making a fantastic product. I look forward to wearing it every day!"

-F.T. of South Korea



I have just received my new watch strap. Very good leather quality, very comfortable. So very happy! Thank you very much and long life to Strapping Fellow."

-D.M. of France


"I happen to be using one of your walnut straps I purchased a couple years ago, which has aged perfectly. As you can see it's a little too small at 18mm, a great excuse to get another from you!

Let me know what you think."

-B.C. of Virginia



Until very recently I couldn't wear a wristwatch because of health issues that make physical contact painful. Well, I have a deep love for mechanical watches so the ones that I could wear (cheap light quartz jobs) held no interest for me. Then I discovered Marathon's general purpose watch which uses a throw-away 17 jewel movement in a resin case with a nylon band. First mechanical wristwatch I ever felt close to comfortable wearing, cept the band hurt.

A few days ago the one piece band you made for me arrived, I'm 30 years old and for the first time I'm able to forget I'm wearing a watch. I want to thank you for that. It also pleases me to know end that there is an actual human being I can write to to thank. It falls in nicely with the way I prefer things - clothes, motorcycle parts, etc - I prefer stuff made in house by someone with a trade who uses quality stuff. I don't generally buy things that are cheaply made. Incidentally thats why the next thing to do with this now perfect watch is to replace the cheap unadjusted movement with an ETA 2801-2. Then it'll be a truly perfect watch.

Anyway, I just wanted to thank you in my rambling way. Thanks for starting this company and keeping it affordable."

-J.G. of Massachusetts 


"I just got my watch strap and its simply gorgeous. I honestly love it. I love the feel of it! I've ordered other straps that are really stiff leather and don't form to my wrist very well. But this is honestly perfect. I can't thank you enough! I'm going to definitely recommend your product to everyone I known thanks again!!!"

-J.C. of Alberta, Canada



I know it's been a while but I want to thank you for the beautiful watch straps you made for me. They turned out much better than I could have hoped for and their recipients were blown away. The quality of your materials and craftsmanship are obvious to everyone who sees them and I look forward to doing business with you again."

-R.H. of Washington



 Just got the strap last night. It's amazing. Everything about it...the round ends, the brushed buckle, the attention to detail...everything. Thanks so much for the work. I'll certainly pass your name along should someone become interested."

-J.B. of Missouri



I was just looking through my sent emails for some reason and I saw your emails from back when i bought my shell strap. I just wanted to say that its amazing and i love it and every since i put it on my favourite watch its literally the only watch that i want to wear. Keep up the awesome work, i will definitely look your way if i need any more."

-P.P. of New York


"I received the watch strap and wanted to let you know I am greatly satisfied with it, thank you!"

-D.J. of Illinois


"Hey Sky,

Received the wallet a few days ago. Just wanted to let you know how satisfied I am with it. Will definitely be spreading the word! Thanks again!"

-T.B. of New York


"Just got it today - fits perfect and looks great. Thanks!"

-P.S. of Ontario, Canada


"Hi Sky,

Just wanted to drop you a note to let you know my band arrived today and I could not be happier with it.  There really is nothing like a custom band for centering a watch on your wrist for a good fit and your craftsmanship did the noble Horween shell cordovan leather proud.

Thank you very much for your patience with me (I know when it comes to watchbands I am a bit obsessive)."

-L.O. of New Jersey


"Hi Sky,

Got the piece yesterday and I absolutely love it!"

-L.O. of New Jersey


"nothing like real Horween shell cordovan- hope you can get your hands on some more soon- it is the material most worthy of your craftmanship in IMO."

-L.O. of New Jersey


"Wanted to let you know that I've had my band for 3 weeks now and I

love it a lot. I will be ordering a another from you in the near


Thanks very much!"

-B.M. of California


"I absolutely love the Horween leather strap and have plans to order a couple more in the future.

Thanks for the quick responses and such good communication.  I will definitely be recommending your straps to friends/family."

-D.C. of Florida


"Thanks.  You made another band for me a while ago, and it is amazing."

-M.S. of Pennsylvania


"I discovered your leather working business through r/malefashionadvice and I ordered a leather watch strap a few weeks ago (#1272). I just wanted to send you a personal message saying that it's a great piece. I've never worn a pull-up leather for my watches, but this, this watch strap is amazing. It's so supple and soft and gives just the right amount of stretch.

Thanks again for the great piece. Definitely worth the money and I'll be sure to advocate for your business."

-C.L. of Ontario, Canada


"Second time customer here. Loved the first strap!"

-G.M. of New York


"I just received my strap in the mail and it's absolutely fantastic! This is exactly what I've wanted since purchasing my watch two years ago. I'm definitely going to recommend your site to my friends and family. Thanks for the great work."
