We created the Custom Cordovan Button-Stud Watchband, (the first button-stud watchband on the market) and launched it with our first products in early 2012. A couple months later, we introduced the adjustable button-stud band, allowing the same simplicity and comfort of the custom band, but sized to fit any wrist, (and if it doesn't fit yours, we'll get you one that does) while maintaining a sleek look of the original by hiding the adjustment holes behind the watch face. Since then, we've had a LOT of imitators; so it looks like we're doing something right.

Offered here in Horween Chromexcel, Veg Tan, and Latigo leathers.  Top-shelf Shell Cordovan leather options also available. For a ready-made watch & band combination, see our currently available pairings with select watch faces.

We use heavier weight leathers and thin down the ‘watch side’ of the band (where the adjustment holes are) for a more universal fit between watch springbars, while maintaining a heavier weight, more substantial leather for the bulk of the band. If you get a band and find your watch still won’t accept the band due to an extremely tight gap, let us know and we’ll make adjustments or get you a refund. 

Engraving & Monogramming

In general, we are subtle with our personalized engravings & monograms. Smaller products receive smaller monograms, and any personalized messages are hidden where the owner can see them but they are not 'out in the open' whenever possible. If you have specific preferences for any customized engravings, make a note in the special instructions section after selecting your options and we'll contact you to verify after your order.

Product Dimensions

Band width as selected. Standard length bands will fit most watches on most wrists up to 8". If you find you need a longer or shorter band, let us know and we'll gladly get you a replacement.

What Kind of Leather Does FFF Use? What's this Chromexcel/Veg Tan/HF stuff instead of just leather color? Where are your products made?

We make everything by hand in Orlando.

As to the leathers we use: The super short answer is Horween Leathers in Chicago, and because we're leather geeks we want you to know exactly what you're getting--it's so much more than just the color of the leather.

You can find more info HERE about how we do things.

Watchband Review

I recently purchased my second Watchband from FF and it is one of my favorite bands. My BIL just ordered one as well after seeing my first band—which still holds up going on 6 years now. I highly recommend Form Function Watchbands.

Pretty good strap but issues with fit

Been wearing the strap for about two months. No complaints about the build of the product, it looks and feels great, and I love Chromexcel. But while I think the concept is good, I think there are a few issues with fit.

1. It's hard to put on. This is a bit of an issue at first, but gets better over time as the leather breaks in. But this becomes an issue again with the next problem.
2. It stretches throughout the day with wear. In the mornings, the fit is good enough, but by the end of the day, the leather has stretched out so the watch is sliding around. This wouldn't be as much of a problem if the strap was easier to put on so a tighter fit could be achieved at first.
3. It's not great for smaller wrists. Thinning out the leather for entry is a good idea, but it doesn't go far enough up if we need to use the holes near the top. This exacerbates the fit issues I mentioned: the watch is far up enough that the leather being bent is thicker, so there's a larger gap.

To be fair, it may just be that this style of strap will never work well for smaller wrists.

I've tried the strap on a 38mm and 40mm watch. The strap worked well enough on the 40mm at first but now the fit issues have made it a huge annoyance. Luckily, it seems to work better on the 38mm so it's not a total wash.

Too thick for my watch🙁

I was disappointed that the band was too thick for my watch. I love the band. I have ordered another watch which is made for that type of band. I am hoping they will work well together. I ordered a different watch and for the initial watch and I am quite pleased with it.

Hello Marcia; I want to make sure that you get a band that works for you. Your son contacted us about an issue with the band and we sent a different one as a replacement (usps says it's on its way to deliver to you tomorrow), but he hadn't mentioned that it was too thick. Please reach out via email and we'll get it fixed for you, whatever the issue may be.
