This handmade Apple Watch band is a true triple threat [Watch Store]

In a tiny workshop in Austin, Texas, one of my all-time-favorite leather straps for Apple Watch is made carefully by hand. The Triple Tour Band by Arrow & Board is a “split” version of the ubiquitous Double Tour strap — popularized by the beautiful albeit monstrously-priced Hermès version.

The Triple Tour is made by Arrow & Board, a small, family-owned company formed in response to what they saw as the scores of mass-produced, low-quality leather accessories on the market today. What started as a hobby of hand-stitching items like wallets, small bags and watch straps has now become a full-time business, with Apple Watch straps being their best-sellers.

“Making leather goods with your own hands is an incredibly rewarding experience. We knew we could make an awesome watch strap that is made with our core values — made in the USA, handcrafted, and meant to last,” says Zackary Brown, owner and product designer for Arrow & Board.

Three ways to wear

The Triple Tour is a super-versatile way to accessorize Apple Watch and can be worn three ways: double-sided on one side of the wrist (left or right) or double-sided between the watch face. More leather, more ways to wear it, at a fraction of the cost of Hermès.

This leather Apple Watch strap is made-to-order from a solid piece of vegetable-tanned, English bridle full-grain leather, which is a smooth, flexible and very durable material. Expect this watch band to age and patina beautifully over time.

The leather is hand-stitched with waxed polyester thread, which is stronger and more weather-resistant than nylon. All of Arrow & Board’s leather is directly sourced from Wickett & Craig, one of the oldest operating tanneries in the United States.

This strap is available in tan, medium brown and black leather. Choose from a variety of hardware options to match your Apple Watch: stainless steel, black/gray, silver aluminum, gold aluminum and rose gold aluminum. The band comes in small and medium/large wrist sizes, and both 38 mm and 42 mm Apple Watch sizes.

I love this strap for its versatility, beauty, high-quality and price. Expect a week or more for delivery, as each band is made to order. Remember to enter code at checkout for 10 percent discount: Arrow&Board2017

Nice band. Worked well. Need to be sure to watch the video on using the tool to adjust the band.

never receive my purchase

I contacted the store but they never replayed to me i don't recommend to buy here!

Sadie, the elder, says .....

Not only is this iWatch such a practical means of holding my watch while charging, it’s a hoot - looks like my original Mac. I love it.

The case doesn’t totally align but it does it’s job. The part that stinks is that it attracts lint and dust because it’s silicone.

Great tidy solution

You know what happens, all your devices need a charger. 2 iPhones, an Apple Watch, iPad and more. My old solution was fast charger with 4 USB outlets plugged in to an outlet in the kitchen. Worked, but not pretty.

Let me start by saying this charger looks great. I got rid of all the other cables and keep this out in the kitchen. Much tidier! Phones charge quickly. Apple watch does too but you to be careful that it goes on right. Also, I have a metal band on mine so I have to close it before I put it on the stand or else it would rest on the screen of the phone below it.
