One of my favorite straps for the Apple Watch is Nomad’s beautiful option made with raw, unprocessed, and unsealed leather from an Italian tannery.
Rugged and classic
The unprocessed leather ages and wears over time.
I reviewed the band, simply called the Nomad Strap, back in October and was enormously pleased with the build quality and extra-added touches like reinforced eyes and heavy-duty two tone stitching.
My original review
And the accessory company has recently announced that the line is growing with two new colors. The original version is now named classic tan while a new amber gray and rustic brown model have joined the lineup.
Because the leather on each strap is unprocessed, the strap will wear over time with a unique patina and mix of other wear marks to add character to the thick and substantial leather.
The buckle is made from 316L stainless steel and designed to be strong and durable. Each strap arrives in a linen-wrapped box with premium felt interior.
Available to order now
The complete strap lineup.
Both of the new colors, along with the original version, are available to order now from Nomad’s site for $150. You can select from a 38mm or 42mm band with either silver or black hardware.
All straps are backed by a two-year warranty from Nomad.
Definitely take a look at one of Nomad’s options if you are looking for a high-quality and beautiful new strap for your Apple Watch. It gives any watch a rugged and classic look that’s different than Apple’s own Classic Buckle or Leather Loop options in the same price range.
