Apple Watches are all about style, class, and finesse. They are what most Italians would call ‘Bellissima,’ which means ‘beautiful.’ That’s exactly why you need to saddle the watch with a stylish leather band that will make the dial stand apart.
If you are looking for the best bands, this article is for you! I’ve done all the leg work and curated a list of the 10 best Apple Watch leather bands that will glamorize the functional dial.
1. Bellroy leather watch band: Editor’s choice
If you’re looking for a band that complements your Apple Watch perfectly, Bellroy’s leather watch band is for you. Thanks to the company’s signature styling, its sculpted curves and smooth leather finish offer great comfort and aesthetics.
The leather is mixed with a hard-grade polymer that makes the band exceptionally durable, enabling it to endure rough use. The textured underside makes it possible to reduce sweat build-up, which further enhances the band’s longevity.
Besides, you will also see a unique patina overshadowing the leather’s surface as time goes by, which is truly remarkable to the eye. You also get a 3-year warranty, giving you the best bet for your money when compared to Apple’s custom watch bands that offer the same premium quirks but are highly expensive and without a warranty.
- Excellent craftsmanship
- Premium, eco-tanned leather build
- 3-year warranty
- No significant cons
One of the reasons why we all love Apple is that it never compromises with quality. That’s precisely what you will find in this custom watch band handcrafted by a French leather manufacturer, Apple’s partner for their leather bands.
The flexible-molded magnets embedded in this band make it curl around your hand with superfluous ease. It rarely creates discomfort or insecurity and comfortably sits on your wrist throughout the day. The band is completely safe and does not pose any health issues because of its magnets.
Further, this custom featured Apple magnetic link band gives you the option to choose from a variety of colors and sizes.
- Premium leather
- Easily curls around hand
- Variety of colors
3. Bullstrap vintage leather band: Most durable
Well talking about vintage, this Bullstrap leather strap fits the bill. Beautifully designed, bully-hard pocketed, this naturally-finished leather band will suit you if you are someone who enjoys going on adventures with the watch on.
Talking about the leather, it’s an Italian-made, top-quality, 100% calfskin leather. The durable linen threads stitched to perfection blend in seamlessly with the leather. I also loved the finish of the stainless belt, easily adding dimension to the watch.
However, the strap might take about a week to adjust to your hand as the leather is pretty hard. Once loosened, you will never feel like parting with it, and you can even go for a bull-ride with it.
- Top-quality, full-grain leather
- Finely stitched linen thread
- Quality hardware
- Strap takes time to get adjusted
4. Nomad modern leather band: Bold and elegant
If you love dark tones, then the Nomad leather band is for you. The rustic brown horween leather not only highlights the light tone of the silver-grey apple watch but also curls nicely along your hand. You will immediately find out the genius of style and comfort confounded within the same array in this band.
The rich and unique patina developing over the surface of the band is another trademark of this leather band. The top-quality grade 316 stainless steel is also worth a mention as it buckles along well.
Needless to say, the stitching is excellent. The band works well with all Apple Watch Series, rendering a unique tone to each one. The only glitch is that it wears out after systematic use and loses the glitter for which it is renowned.
- Premium horween leather
- Bold and elegant
- Rugged patina
- Wears out with time
5. amBand genuine leather band: Durable and comfy
What we’ve got with this one-of-a-kind leather band is a no-brainer. As the name suggests, the amBand leather is 100% genuine, and it feels good wrapped around your hand. It’s got that kind of feel where it’s soft as well as firm at the same time. That makes it a convenient option.
The thing I most like about this leather band is the design. Also, the ease with which the hardware slips in briskly along the dial is super handy.
A fairly acclaimed feature in this band is the fine stitching. amBand has made it a priority to hit all the boxes right. To complement that, you’ve got such well-polished stainless steel buckles that by themselves stand apart to give this leather band a top-class rating.
- Genuine, thick leather
- Gorgeous design
- Comfortable and durable
- Colors are a bit off
6. Oulucci watch band: Most stylish
For a price tag of $13, this leather band serves the purpose. The top-grain leather is soft, feeling good on your hand. The band’s design with its narrow-down styling is aesthetic, and it’s the ultimate finale if you’re looking for a cute leather band.
The band is compatible with any wrist size, and you can easily buckle the watch across a convenient hole. The decorative buckle gets your attention, and you’ll love how painlessly it slips in through the holes.
You can choose the leather band from a variety of colors to style your watch effortlessly and instantly bring glamor to the table. As you might know, this is one of those sleek bands that make your Apple Watch look more like a party-mode watch.

7. Bestig waterproof leather band: Designed for every setting
Fashionable as well as professional, Bestig’s leather band fits both leagues. It’s got style, class, and finesse, all the traits one wishes to find in a low-budget band.
The exceptional part of this leather band is that it can survive anything. You name it, heat, water, earth, probably even a little bit of fire. (😂 Nope, it’s not fire-proof).
The leather band is designed in such a way to pair your Apple Watch across any setting. It perfectly pairs up with casual as well as format outfits. Bestig perfectly gets this ‘made for every setting’ version of the leather band across with this one.
For the technical side of it, you’d find out that the leather band is a mix of genuine leather on the outside and natural black silicone on the inside. The main reason behind its durability and effectiveness. And oh my, with the variety of colors for the band and connector, you can customize your watch to your liking.
- Sporty, authentic leather
- Water- and sweat-proof
- Legacy of styles
- Simple design
8. Mifa leather watch band: Classy design
Mifa has the audience pulled in with this leather band owing to its classy-hole design. The golden-yellow perforation across this band is cool. This, when paired along with the fine yellow stitching of the band, makes it a stunning piece of art.
The eye-raising feature of this band is the anodized semi-glossy black stainless steel adapters and buckle. They provide strong hinge support, therefore, cementing the watch dial in its place. You can easily maneuver the leather band across your hand to feel the way you want.
I love how this leather band gives you that consistent warm appeal every time you’re wearing it. It just feels good in all climatic conditions, owing to the perforated dots, which allow breathing room for your hand.
- Classy-hole design
- Fine stitching
- Strong hinge support for dial
- Medium-quality leather
For a low-budget leather band, this one makes the cut-off. The premium cowhide leather used in this band gives it a smooth feel and a pleasant, fragrant smell that makes you comfortable. You won’t have a hard time fitting it as there are multiple precision holes for all wrist sizes.
It’s compatible with all the iWatch models and syncs well to render it a unique tonality. Another feature worth mentioning is the sweat-proof capacity of this band. Mapuce has considered this aspect promptly as you notice how the inner surfaces of the band have subtle air channels to cool your hand.
You can also choose from dark brown and brown colors to match your style and preferences.
- Premium cowhide leather
- Multiple precision holes
- Mutliple color options
- Isn’t as comfortable
10. Fullmosa Apple Watch band: Comfortable fit
Are you looking for a party-mode leather band for your latest apple watch? Then, go for this eye-flashing leather band that features a variety of bright colors. I like how they have added that rich hue to the colors, especially red, blue, and yellow.
The criss-cross patterns that layer the band is a stunning design quirk that automatically generates vast appeal. The curved buckle seems to be at par too, giving you a tangible wear and release-buckle usability. You can wear it for your workout sessions as they are sweat-proof.
The leather softens with time, which I think is perfect as it becomes so comfy and cool. Wiping the band often adds that additional glimmer to the band and keeps it from wearing off.
- Vibrant color options
- Snug fit
- Durable and lightweight
- Not a great fit for small wrists
Price – $25
