The Apple Watch Classic Buckle Band is a beauty, a truly timeless accessory that matches almost any outfit and occasion. However, Apple no longer sells it. You're in luck, though! There are plenty of reasonably priced classic-style leather watch bands in a wide array of colors available. Most of these are made for every size and generation Apple Watch, so you'll have choices. Here are some of our favorite bands to get the Apple Watch Classic Buckle look for less.

Get the Apple Watch Classic Buckle look for less

The Apple Watch Classic Buckle band was a beauty, but you can get a similar look for a lot less. Apple Watch bands don't have to be expensive. Grab any of the leather Apple Watch bands listed above and feel good about spending less money for a great band regardless of your style. We love the look, feel, and affordable price tag of the Fullmosa Genuine Leather Band: plus, it looks incredibly similar to the real deal. It comes in so many colors; you'll be sure to find one (or several) you love.

For those who like the classic buckle style but prefer a less bulky look, check out WFEAGL's Leather Band. We love the tapered shape, 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.
