While the Apple Watch Classic Buckle band is beautiful to look at and is truly a timeless accessory that matches almost any outfit and occasion, the price can seem a little steep for some. Plus, Apple has such a limited color selection available each season. You're in luck, though. There are plenty of reasonably-priced classic-style leather bands in a wide array of colors available all of the time. Most of these are available for every size and generation Apple Watch. Here are some of our favorites.
- Best for Most: Fullmosa Genuine Leather Band
- Comfortable: Mifa Leather Apple Watch Band
- Tapered: WFEAGL Leather Band
- Easy Installation: Jisoncase Lambskin leather band
- Luxury Look: Marge Plus Apple Watch Genuine Leather strap
- Eye-Catching: NewSilkRoad plaid Apple Watch band
- Sparkle: Wearlizer Thin Glitter Apple Watch band
The Fullmosa Genuine Leather Band is a super soft and incredibly comfortable band replacement that can be easily adjusted to fit a variety of different wrist sizes. The stainless steel buckle is pretty much the same as the original Classic Buckle design, and it comes in a wide range of color options.
This matte leather band with a black stainless steel clasp not only looks sharp, but it's also made from real leather that's meant to be more breathable to allow the skin underneath to stay dry. Perfect if you're on the move on a sunny day.
Not an exact copy of Apple's Classic Buckle, this beauty tapers away from the Apple Watch for a slimmer, more delicate look. WFEAGL offers both watch sizes, multiple hardware color options, plus dozens of gorgeous leather colors and even some patterns.
With the Jisoncase Lambskin leather band, you don't need to worry about using tools to attach or detach the band. Simply slide on the Classic Buckle lookalike, and you're good to go. The band itself is made from a super-smooth lambin leather that's comfortable for day-to-day wear and comes in several different colors.
This Classic Buckle knockoff is priced low but looks and feels like a more expensive Apple Watch accessory. Its thick stitching and polished stainless steel buckle make it quite eye-catching. The listing linked below is for the 42/44mm Apple Watch, but it is also available in the 38/40mm size.
The NewSilkRoad plaid Apple Watch band is perfect if you want to make a statement. These a bunch of different colors and patterns, quality leather band, and stainless steel buckle, this band is bound to make any leather lover happy.
Leather is great on its own, but add a little sparkle, and you have a uniquely beautiful band for your Apple Watch. This slim, tapered, glittery band comes in well over a dozen colors and will be sure to dress up any outfit you own.
Find the perfect Classic Buckle replacement for the perfect price
Apple Watch bands don't have to be expensive. Grab any of the bands listed above and feel good about spending less money for a great band regardless of what style you like. We love the look, feel, and affordable price tag of the Fullmosa Genuine Leather Band: plus, it looks incredibly similar to the real deal.
For a different, less bulky look, check out WFEAGL's Leather Band. We love the tapered style, which makes a more subtle statement than a wide band around the wrist. Speaking of a statement, one of the many colors available is a snakeskin print, which is certainly hot right now.
