Following are some options to consider while you look for the perfect leather watch bands.
1: Hodinkee Textured Hunter Green Calfskin
This watch band from Hodinkee is an incredibly smooth textured calfskin strap which goes well with almost all watches. The top-stitch looks very trendy in contrasting white color.
This band is available in 5 sizes with different variations available in diverse colors and finishes with different pricing depending on the material used thus ensuring that there is something for everyone. The second layer of leather supporting the underside of the strap and matching floating and fixed leather keepers makes this band a finely made accessory.

3: Hodinkee Leather Rallye Watch Strap
Another great product from Hodinkee. The Hodinkee Rallye strap differs from Hodinkee’s “Racing” straps because of the design and size of the holes that perforate the leather. This black leather strap features three holes in ascending sizes instead of a pattern of smaller holes. This strap projects style cues that are pure 1960s vintage racing that is why the Rallye looks perfect when paired with Autavias, Daytona’s, and Carreras in addition to many other types of watches.
Although this strap may feel a bit stiff on arrival however it breaks in well with age. The subtle touch of corner stitching beneath the buckle and top-stitching along the perimeter is done in black. That provides an aesthetic look to this simple and classic racing strap.
