    I'm looking for one....I love that band but even if I could justify that price the cuff style is only for the 42 MM and I have the 38MM. I will post if I find one - I'm really hoping someone creates a knockoff cuff band - it's beautiful!!

    So I just found a replica cuff band for a Fossil watch on Etsy - the seller said he will give quotes for custom bands so I requested a quote and gave him the pic of the Hermes band. I will let you know what I hear back from him. His price for the fossil version was 41 bucks and it looked high quality -https://www.etsy.com/listing/245937263/leather-handmade-watch-cuff-strap-with?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=apple%20watch%20leather%20wrist%20cuff&ref=sr_gallery_2

    Cheers,

    Cool. Thanks! I guess the key is not blocking the heart rate sensor.

    Yes and I plan to point that out to him - should be easy enough to do - just have a cut out sized for the watch.

    I will be glad to do so....waiting to hear back from the Etsy dude - he's in Rome, Italy. I hope to hear back from him soon. I will keep everyone posted.

    Cheers!

    I messaged him to about another one of his bands asking him if he can make it in 24mm rather than 22mm. Haven't heard from him.

    I found these on eBay today. Genuine Hermes though - a bit pricey, but if you look often enough, you might find a better price. Hermes Cape Cod Double Tour band:

    Thanks again for the suggestion.

    Cheers,

    Great. His stuff is not inexpensive, but is really unique and high quality.

    Aaron got back to me tonight from combat-straps.com - he's going to have something to show me tomorrow. I will be in an area with crappy signal so I may not be able to post anything until Sunday but I will keep you all updated. Thanks for the suggestion Snoopy16

    Aaron never followed up? I will PM you his number as text seems to work better, but understand you are over it. The clone looks cool.

    My cuff (now I see why these are listed for 42mm - mine is 38mm & it looks big on my wrist).

    Cuff information is shown in my earlier post in this thread (#12). The second one pictured is the one on my wrist in post #18. I prefer the first one pictured in post #12 (I got it in black - see below). It fits better & if you got it in brown, imo, it would look more like the real Hermes ⌚️. My husband cut a hole in the center of each cuff so the ⌚️ sensors would react properly (see below).

    Thanks :) sorry to be such a pain, how exactly did you manage to cut a hole in it so nicely? Do you have a special tool or just really good at cutting with scissors/ something like a stanley knife? :)
