In January I purchased the exact same band, it was pretty beat up so I decided to buy another to replace it. I felt that the leather was different as was the color from the same band I had purchased less than a year ago, I figured over time it would match the original, which didn't happen. So I contacted the company to ask if they changed the leather they use and their response was kinda dismissive. They said to put leather conditioner on it and it'll be fine, I did it and it didn't change the fact that the leather was a different color and tougher leather this time, and not because the leather got softer and the color got faded over time. I have purchased a good amount of bands from this company and only had one issue, and that issue was handled by their amazing customer service department. At the time it was the best customer service experience I had from any company on Amazon. I had such high hopes with this band, and when it didn't meet those expectations I reached out to their customer service department expecting another great experience and that's not close to what I got.
Hey sports fans. The Barton quick release leather band. I purchased the 20mm black leather with white linen stitching. First impressions, its a soft supple leather, feels comfortable straightaway. The quick release feature, certainly makes swapping out your leather strap convenient. That being said, I believe this band should be worn on someone with a 7in. wrist, or smaller. On my 7.25 ~ 7.5in, it just barely fits. I use the third hole, and none of the leather strap goes past the leather hold-downs. I'm tempted to cut off the adjustable leather hold-down, to get the look I desire. While not entirely unhappy with this leather band, I will say, I have better luck with the offerings from ColaReb. If you are a gentleman with a larger wrist, I'd pass. If your someone with a thinner wrist, you may enjoy this offering from Barton. Hope this helps, have a great day.
I bought this less than a week ago and the band already started ripping. I do not wear my watch obscenely tight nor do I fuss with it a lot. This is a weak band.
Overall, this is a pretty decent quality watch band that I can see holding up for a while. My last band came with my watch (a Skagen) and survived about 6 years before I decided enough was enough. With this Barton, I really appreciate the quick-release on both strap halves, as they made installation an absolute breeze, and the leather is both comfortable and thick.
Pros: Pretty good for the price, quick release pins are easy to work with, great customer service
On the whole I am happy with this quick release watch strap...however, there are buts. It looks good and is easily attached and removed from my Gear S3 smartwatch using the quick release pins. For the price I expected a thicker leather strap than I got. The picture is cleverly taken at an angle to give the illusion of a thicker product than the reality. It also seems like a layer of plastic is sandwiched between the outer leather layers. Certainly, every time I pull the strap through the buckle to fasten there is a clicking noise like a thick piece of plastic being bent. My original black Samsung strap is twice as thick and a genuine quality product. This isn’t.
I really like the look of this strap. I bought it, for what I consider to be a significant price, expecting great quality. I'm sorry to say that it is a product of style over substance. Packaged beautifully, it really has a feel of high quality, yet normal use over a relatively short period of time has shown that this strap is not made to stand up to regular use.
I go through a lot of watch bands, for two reasons. Firstly, I'm pretty fickle and get bored easily and want a change. Secondly, the standard usually isn't that high when you're dealing with 3rd party manufacturers. Barton are the exception. I'm currently on my second band (nothing happened to the first - I changed the watch and bought a new Barton band), and if (or when) I switch watches again, the first purchase will be to replace the original band with a Barton. Top quality finish and materials coupled with great looks. What's not to like?
Nice strap, looks good with my Huawei watch, but split around quick release pin after 4 months of use.
I like this strap. Initial impressions are good from packaging to product. The finish on the leather is matt or unpolished so it will wear as leather does. I would like a polished option in this colour, personally. The colour is a light neutral tan, no red tones. I like it and suits my Samsung Gear S3.
