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. We love the look of the Ninth Co. Modern Buckle Leather. You get a nice selection of colors from which to choose, and both Apple Watch sizes.

However, if you're an eBay shopper, you can save even more money with the Modern Buckle Genuine Leather Band. While the color variety isn't huge, the band is available in both the 38/40mm and 42/44mm Apple Watch sizes.
