You don't need to spend an arm and a leg on Apple's Modern Buckle band
The original Apple Modern Buckle is gorgeous but priced out of reach for many of us. Fortunately, there are some other bands out there with a similar design but a smaller price tag. If you're an eBay shopper, you can save money with the Leather Modern Buckle Strap Band For Apple Watch. There's a nice color variety, and the band is available in both the 38/40mm and 42/44mm Apple Watch sizes.
While you're on eBay, you'll notice several listings for the genuine Apple Watch Modern Buckle, both new and used, for a fraction of the price. You can get a real steal on a real Apple band; just shop with caution. Read seller reviews and check the listing carefully to know what you're getting and what the return policy is.
