About Us

allwatchbands.com was formed in 1999 as one of the first online sellers of replacement watch bands and watch accessories. The idea was born out of the existing company, Jewelry Service Center, founded in 1991 with service centers located in Maryland. The founders of Jewelry Service Center had sold replacement watch bands, as well as repairing watches and replacing watch batteries, for about eight years. They saw a niche opening for specializing in selling a unmatched variety of quality watchbands at affordable prices. That notion, combined with a passion for entrepreneurship, resulted in the launch of allwatchbands.com.

In these early years of the Internet, shopping online was still a fairly new concept. allwatchbands was one of a handful of original jewelry related product sellers on the web, determined to be on the forefront of the emerging trend of online shopping. Eighteen years later, we have served generations of families and tens of thousands of satisfied customers.

Our top priority is to provide the highest level of customer service and a wide variety of quality brand items, including Hadley Roma, Hirsch, Stuller, Speidel, Timex, DB Straps and AWB Italian Straps. Check out our selection!

 

We want your watchband shopping experience to be easy, fun and personalized to your lifestyle needs. Our vision is to be your complete online watch band supplier. We want our customers to be able to visit one place where they can find a replacement watch band for any member of their family and their lifestyle.

From our experience, our customers don’t want to be limited to only cheap replacement bands or only high-end luxury bands. The majority want to own a variety of bands that pair with various watches and serve different purposes in their day-to-day life. It is our goal to offer a wide selection of bands that span the gamut and fit more than just one type of lifestyle;

  • A high-quality leather band for the business professional, who after work switches to a silicone band fitting for their gym workout;
  • A stay-at-home parent of young kids, who has a value oriented and practical band for every-day use, but also has a few classy metal and exotic bands for nights out on the town;
  • An outdoor enthusiast who owns a diver band for weekend adventures, but alternates between a trendy NATO band and their favorite worn-in leather band for everyday use.

Whatever your lifestyle, we want to help you find watch bands to match.

 

 

Watch Band Measuring Quick Guide

How To Find Your Watch Band Size

Watch band or watch strap size is determined by the width of the band end that attaches to the watch. If you already have a leather band for the watch in question, you can check the back to see if it has a size imprint, shown in millimeters. Otherwise, you will need to find the lug width (distance between the inside of the lugs on the watch head). You can easily measure it yourself in one of the below three ways.

Rounding: Rule of thumb for a replacement watch band is that it’s better for the watch band to be tight rather then loose. If you need to round your measurement, rounding up is usually your best bet. A leather, rubber or nylon watch strap can be slightly flexible to fit.

How To Find Your Watch Band Length

LEATHER, NYLON, RUBBER OR METAL

Method 1: Measure An Existing Strap that fits your watch with a ruler to determine the length. When measuring, only measure the material parts of the strap, do not include the buckle.

Method 2: Finding Length From Scratch
1) Find your wrist size by wrapping a tape measure or a piece of string around your wrist. Mark where the two ends meet then lay the thread out flat on a ruler and measure the distance. Find your watch head size by using a ruler or check the manufacturer for information.

2) Minus your watch head measurement from your wrist size measurement. This will give you the total watch band length needed. Important Note: Not all watch bands are manufactured in every length,  and most metal watch bands are adjustable, so choose the size closest to your size or go longer.
