Leather Apple Watch Band from Clockwork Synergy
The Watch band comes in a variety of colors, but I picked the “Worn Light Brown Leather” and I have to say I’m very happy with my decision. That said, there are two other variations of brown that are very nice. I might end up picking up that darker one too.
I love how well it matches the Orange second hand on many of the Apple Watch faces. It feels like it matches it perfectly. The connectors are great, too. They fit very well and they make the Watch look a little more masculine.
In terms of the leather, it’s very soft and very thick, which is something I like. It doesn’t feel flimsy or cheap. I’ve had some expensive watch bands in the past, and while this may not be as good, it’s pretty darn close. Seriously, I can’t get over the price.
Here’s a picture of the back where you can see the stitching. Very clean and minimalistic.
Here’s a closeup of the buckle. Again, for the price, it’s hard to beat. The fit is great too. I can wear this Watch band all day and it doesn’t feel uncomfortable. Clockwork Synergy found a nice balance between leather that is thick but doesn’t feel incredibly stiff.
Here’s a final pic showing exactly how wide the band is. It’s definitely a little wider than the Classic Buckle Apple sells, and I actually kind of like that.
All-in-all I have to say that I really like this leather Apple Watch band. It’s currently that I’m wearing daily unless I’m going to the gym or for a run. I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on it and I can’t say I have any regrets.
