    Hi All -

    I have came across a few and didn't know if people here have had any experiences with them. I absolutely love the saddle brown classic band Apple came out with when the AW was first introduced and even though they have been discontinued, i can still get a brand new one for $149. The only issue, is it has the silver SS clasp, etc. and i have ordered 44mm SBSS. Not sure how that will look with it.

    Also been looking at the brown leather one by Monowear Design and the brown leather band by Nomad. Both of these you're able to get it with the space gray buckle to make it match the SB. What do you guys think? Pics would help.

    Thanks for the pics. It’s a lil darker than what I’m looking for. I’m also looking at Clockwork Synergy. They have light brown/saddle color along with being able to match the buckle clasp with SSSB

    How's the color of that tan strap you bought from bullstrap? I purchased one from clockworksynergy but it was more of a burnt orange/orange'ish color so i returned it. Any pics?

    it has a little more "saddle" color to it in real life, but it looks very classy and high end IMO. I love it

    That's nice! I like it. I just ordered the classic leather band (brown) from Monowear Design. Curious to see how that looks in person. I may order the bullstrap one as well. I think the one by Nomad is nice looking, but i'm not looking for one that dark of brown. So that's why i shunned away from that.

    thats a nice band! Kind of diggin that deployment buckle, with getting use to the simplicity of taking on and off the sport band and sport loop band, having to slightly struggle to use an old fashioned buckle makes me feel like i have a serious first world problem LOL
