With its lineup of Apple Watch accessories launching since the device's debut last year, Pad & Quill has been steadily expanding its roster of made-for-Apple products with new bands and docks. I've previously gotten my hands on the company's Classic Watch Band and Timber Catchall and Timber Nightstand Apple Watch docks, and while some of them appealed to me more than others -- the Timber Catchall was simply too large for me at the end of the day -- the company's quality was evident in everything I saw.


As a more masculine alternative to the Classic Watch Band, Pad & Quill has also started offering the $129.95 Lowry Leather Cuff for the Apple Watch, exclusively for the larger 42mm models. The design of the band extends slightly beyond the case of the Apple Watch itself, adding a stocky look to Apple's already thick wearable device. The Lowry Cuff has a few minor quibbles that resurface on a daily basis (mainly centering around the accessory's overall size), but they never overshadow Pad & Quill's quality aesthetic, especially for anyone looking for a larger band like this.

Pad & Quill's junk must be made in the same Chinese factory as all of the other Apple watch band clones.

The leather looks terrible & the stitching is awful. You can get the same quality for $30 from Amazon & save yourself $100.

I bought this band, with a little bit of remorse. I mostly agree with the review, and the comments here. The clasping is awkward, and sits sideways as the picture shows. I was surprised by how it barely fits around my wrist, and I by no means have a thick wrist. And the comments about the stitching is spot on - definitely not as tight and good looking as other straps I own.

If this was half the price, I may recommend it to somebody who wants a different look. But at $130, I think there are better options out there.

Absolutely hideous. That thing will soak up sweat and become a biohazard in six months use. Disgusting.

I did spent the money on this band, I ordered the black one; the band looked very nicely crafted right out of the box, the stitching was tight and looked perfectly fine, this is a fine made in the USA product.

I'm confused. You said the Timber Catchall was too big for your wrist and that the Lowry band is for larger wrists.

Are the Timber Catchall's designed for Andre the Giant's wrist? Because it looks like the Lowry band on your wrist in the pics is near to the last hole on the strap.

It looks like a regular watch band with an extra piece. I'd say it resembles a cuff, but isn't actually a cuff.

I received one as a Christmas present. I absolutely love it. I think the review is pretty accurate and that the band should be longer. Other than that I would disagree that its poor quality.
