I ordered and different band from the same seller. After 3 weeks I canceled it because it never shipped. He refunded promptly.

I ordered the exact same band from the exact same seller one month ago and it never shipped. Good thing I paid with Paypal and I am now in the process of getting my money back.

I also ordered same band from the same seller. Got a shipping notification, but never received anything. Seller says he has re-shipped and I should receive in a week or two. I can be patient for this since Apple doesn't offer the leather loop for the 38mm watch (which sucks).

I ordered mine about 3 weeks ago and haven't even received a tracking number even though it's marked on eBay as shipped.

It could very well be stuck in customs, so I'll wait another week before reaching out to him.

I've also ordered from this seller. Says he's shipped it out and it should arrive by 18th of June. My guess is that it's bs because no Chinese ships without tracking number. They can't track your order and neither can you. But we'll see what happens.

From this seller? I don't know if you misread my post but I wrote that according to my experience with imports from Asia there isn't anyone stupid enough to ship something without a tracking number. Even on stuff for <$10 I've received tracking numbers. So I don't think these leather loops are going to show up. Sadly enough.

Do people not realize that most of the pictures of the watch band in this listing were ripped from Apple's web site? There should be no doubt that these are either (1) really cheap knockoffs not worth any amount of money or (2) a complete scam. I'm leaning towards the latter.

How is that ripped off of apple ?

Looks decent imho.

If it doesn't show up, oh well, I will cancel, he will get negative feedback life goes on.

For those who ordered an unofficial leather loop band, did you get to specify what length you wanted or did they specify what the length of the strap was?

I know the large genuine Apple Leather Loop is too large for me, and I would hate to order one of the bands and find it is too large for me.

Update: I just contacted one of the sellers of the leather loop on eBay, and they told me the loop straps are 18cm and 5cm.

The 18cm size would be way too large. The genuine Apple Leather Loop (Large) is 13cm and 8cm and the Medium is 12cm and 7cm.

I tried on Apple's large loop and it was huge on me, but the medium size was fine. I think with the fake leather loop, it would dwarf my wrist (170mm wrist).

If you have 170cm wrists then nothing would dwarf them except a Hummer 2.

However as I've come to understand all leather loops are one size only from China. But then again I'm still waiting for my loop from Tonsee Store. Probably won't ever show up.

Thanks for pointing out the obvious typo. I meant 170mm wrists.

It was from a seller called hong_yao66

I think they have them in stock as he came back pretty quickly with the measurements of the band. I think they also go by the name of hongshi_fashion as the listing is identical.

Update. The seller does not have any of the bands in stock. I asked a follow up question and They sent me an email stating they they are out of stock.

As I've learned all these leather loops on eBay going for under $50 just won't show up. I saw some in China on AliExpress but they were more in the price range of $70.
