FFF Watchband (Cordovan)


All adjustable FFF watchbands are 'buy 2 get one free'. Just add 3 to your cart (any size/leather/stud color) to see discount. Mix adjustable cordovan or standard adjustable bands. Not good on Apple Watchbands or Custom Cordovan.

We took the design of The Original Cordovan Button-Stud Watchband, and added the ability to adjust the band to fit your wrist or preferred wear style, while maintaining the comfort, simplicity, and innovative design of the original.

Offered here in Horween’s absolute top-shelf leather, Shell Cordovan. Chromexcel & Veg Tan leather options also available.

“Why do some of the colors look different between the band and the swatch??” There can be a good bit of variation between particular pieces of cordovan (true for ALL full grain leather)–also, depending on the viewing angle, the color can change a good bit–cordovan is a particularly dynamic color tannage of leather.

  • Adjustable length button-stud band fits virtually all wrist sizes with over 2" of adjustment.
  • If you find your new band needs to be a bit shorter or longer to fit you, or if you find the band stretching out a lot (full grain leather will stretch, some pieces just stretch TOO much, and we just replace them without hassle) contact us for a prompt fix.
  • When installed correctly (wear it as shown in our watch photos or all over our Instagram page, NOT with the button stud down on the bottom of your wrist), band design hides button-stud adjustment holes behind watch face (and keeps the button stud from banging against your wrist/desk/laptop while working). For a truly custom band sized to your watch and wrist, see The Original Cordovan Button-Stud Watchband.
  • USA made, low profile screw-back button studs in stainless steel, black DLC perma-coated stainless, and solid brass (all with hypoallergenic solid brass screw backs).

Exceptional in every way

I've got a few FFF straps, and every singe one is perfect. They only get better the longer I wear them. I recently lost a band and stud that Shawn had thrown in as an extra to a purchase I made years ago. I contacted him asking if I could buy a button stud from him, as I had other FFF straps that just needed a stud. Instead of selling me one, he sent me not only a button stud, but another brand new band. This is not just a guy who maintains impeccable customer service, he's generous. What a thing to be able to say about a business. Thank you Shawn!

Top Quality

My cordovan watchband arrived quickly and I'm very happy with the quality of the leather. It is already breaking in quite nicely. Also talked to Shawn before I bought it and he was super helpful with advice on sizing and style.

Sweet watch strap

It's amazeballs. You've been tagged on @relos_mio!

Love it

Best band I’ve owned

Favorite strap model by far

I now own 5 FFF straps in various leather types and I'm about to order two more. Simply the most comfortable straps. Well made and good looking :) The black cordovan one is stunning with my Orient Symphony.


After trying a Button Stud band from FFF you’ll wonder why bands have buckles! The Shell Cordovan is so luxurious and the Black is perfect for a dress watch.

Another great watch band...

This is the third watch band I've bought from FFF...but the first Cordovan leather one. I was looking for a thicker leather to go with a new watch I just bought, and it's perfect.
I love the way these bands look because they are so different than anything anyone else is wearing.
The quality is excellent...I expect this to last a long, long time...

Another great addition

Just received my second Shell Cordovan watchband and as ever it's utterly gorgeous. My first was a color 8 which I've had now for a couple of years. This time i sprung for Calvados so it'll be easier to match with belt, shoes etc. The leather is silky and gorgeous and the underside is soft and feels great on the wrist. It's a bit thicker than my older strap so was a bit of a tight squeeze on my skx013 but I put in some thinner spring bars and it fits fine. As always, 5 stars to FFF and a very happy returning customer! :)
