    Introducing WatchBandit - Official Thread

    Hello everyone,

    This is Johannes and Mick from WatchBandit in Berlin, Germany.

    We are watch enthusiasts who are always looking for exceptional watches and we, of course, love Microbrands. On those principles, we founded WatchBandit back in 2014. We love the small, independent, innovative and contemporary watch and strap manufacturers who have the courage, dedication and sense of design to create special products for all of us. This was what inspired us to found WatchBandit, the shop for micro watch brands and accessories that you will not get on every corner.

    The last year we have put more and more focus into creating our own watch straps as we were tired of the extremely expensive straps available that often costs more than the watch itself, but at the same time we still wanted something in outstanding quality, so why not create it yourself and that's what we did. We choose to call this new line WB ORIGINAL and the first collection was the suede straps. Produced in a small Italian Tannery, with calf leather from Tuscany and of course vegetable tanned. These a 35€ a piece:

    The second collection from our WB ORIGINAL line was Nato Straps. Here we choose Seat-Belt nylon for a smooth, strong comfortable feel, and hardware in brushed stainless steel. These are 20€ a piece:

    The third WB ORIGINAL line that will come in a couple of weeks are Vintage styled leather straps. We are not sure what to bring as a fourth line, maybe a classic line or a racing, but if you have any ideas we would love to hear from you?

    That's was a little introduction from us, we look forward to taking an active part in this legendary forum.

    High5 from Berlin,

    Johannes & Mick

    Looking good! welcome and good luck with your straps.
    I really like the look of your suede straps.
    Could you give us some measurements., specifically how thick are they and as I haven't checked out your site yet how much for shipping?

    Hi tokeisukeii, thanks a lot for your feedback.

    The Suede straps are 2mm thick, and the strap length is 11,50 cm + 7,50 cm. Buckle width is 4 mm shorter then lug width.

    We only charge 5€ for shipping worldwide and have free shipping on orders over 99€.

    VAT is automatically reduced at checkout if you order from outside EU.

    If you guys have any other questions, then just shoot

    Personally, I'd kill for a high quality tropic rubber strap for smaller wrists (or any rubber strap for smaller wrists for that matter). As far as I can tell no one offers that at the moment so there's probably some demand for it.

    Thanks for the suggestion, we are actually currently looking into rubber straps, but the upfront investment is pretty high as you have to invest in the part to shape the strap. But its defiently on our list, and the tip with a focus on "smaller" wrist is great, thanks.

    I just placed an online order for a light brown 20 mm racing strap for my Speedy. Let’s check their quality and fitting on Speedy. I’ll post photos of the strap with my Speedy once I get the delivery for your appraisal here.

    Are you guys associated with cheapestnatostrap? Because the straps you both selling are exactly the same, even the stock photos. Except cns sell them for half of the price..
