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.

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.

Classy and comfortable!

I purchased a Chromexcel band a couple years ago and loved it so much that I decided I needed a cordovan band to go with my dressier attire. The Color 8 band is just as comfortable! It's surface is a little shiny, which matches the pizzazz of fancy clothes. The band was engraved with a custom monogram and it turned out crisp and beautiful - a highly recommended customization. I also use it with a 19mm RoadID as well and it fits perfectly! If you're looking for an understated way to step up your dress watch game, this FFF cordovan watch band is it!

Elegance and Versatility

I love these straps. I discovered them in 2018, and now I have eight for literally every shoe color and occasion. The heart of style is simplicity and elegance, in my opinion, and these straps do it with a flair for originality and functionality (ha, thus the name) that make them seem at once brilliant and utterly obvious.

I started out using them on a Skagen Holst, which is a pretty cheap $100 watch someone gave me, and I was getting compliments left and right, even from the four-figure "watch person" set. Now I have them on a Tissot Everytime with a white face, which is also a really simple, minimalist design that plays perfectly with these and really lets them quietly shine. It's a very understated look that can be dressed up or down incredibly well and projects just the right amount of visual activity to complement anything. Total team player.

The BEST thing about these straps, though, is simply the convenience. Whether at home or when I'm traveling, I simply have one watch face and straps on hand for whatever I'm wearing. It's like having six watches that take up less space than a single chunky metal one, which is always gonna make you look like a *****, anyway. :)

Oh! Last note: As I'm posting this, I see that someone below me is complaining about "plastic leather" or "fake leather." I 100% guarantee it's because he doesn't know what cordovan is. When I ordered a black cordovan strap, I had the same initial impression because I also didn't know better at the time. It DOES look like rubber -- because it's not (calfskin) leather; it's SHELL cordovan. It's going to look extremely sleek and you're not going to see the grain that you would in a calfskin leather because there is no grain -- the skin is removed to make the shell. These guys use top-notch, authentic materials. I've come to love the cordovan for its durability, but if you want a strap that looks like the leather you're used to, order one IN LEATHER (not shell cordovan!). It's an easy mistake to make if you don't know what the materials are.

Not what was expected

Thin plastic appearing leather. Pleather.
The brass piece was ok.
Far from satisfied. My expectation was that for $70 I would receive a high quality watch band. Save your money.

Hey Stefan. Sorry you didn’t like the cordovan. It’s definitely a glossier leather than most. We try to use lighter weight pieces for watchbands, because if it’s too thick it won’t fit through many watches. But I don’t want you to have a band that you’re clearly this unhappy with. Maybe you’d prefer a more standard cowhide leather in a chromexcel finish. I’d like to send you a couple other standard leather bands that aren’t cordovan. It’s a great leather but I usually tell people if they’re not familiar with it already it might not be for them. So unless you’re really wanting the glossy, hard wearing finish that’s sort of the signature of cordovan a different leather might be a better fit. So, I’ll send you some other options, or we can absolutely send a heavier weight piece of cordovan. Let me know which direction you’d like to go...or if you’d just prefer a refund that’s absolutely an option too. Just want to make sure you’re happy.

Happy with the first, so I did it again.

My first band came with a special priced combo deal. Second was to retrofit a watch I already had. Fulfillment and shipping was quick. Nice products.
