So my watch has the "quick release" knob where you can easily change the watch band. It was a P.S. type 2 band. This Barton watch band will fit my watch but there are some big differences in width and material. The picture on the left is the P.S real alligator skin watchband. It cost over $200 and lasted about 1 and 1/2 years. The middle picture is the new Barton watchband "quick release" knob. As you can see from the picture the area around the "quick release" knob already looks worn. Or maybe the material wasn't cut properly? The picture on the right is the Barton's design of the "top grain leather" simulating alligator skin. Because of the cut design of the P.S watchband, it is actually about 20MM in band width. The cut design of the Barton watchband is about 15MM wide which makes it look more like a woman's watch band. (not unisex). The Barton's does not look as good and is not as wide as the P.S watchband. But if you are just looking for something that fits your watch and is a good price, this band is for you. remember it is not full leather (top grain leather). Maybe I'll a update in a few months of how it holds up.
Pins to short i left the same review on the silicone bands i also ordered. Need to remedy the pin length. The 20 mm is the correct size for my watch Tag Heuer Aquaracer. I compared the pin length with 3 other 20mm i have and the pins in this barton are too short. Just a small bit but because it wont stay in the pin holes the watch band falls out
I own several Barton watch straps and the quality and value is always top notch. This alligator grain is no exception. The strap is flexible and comfortable and looks great. I love the QR springbars -- I won't put anything else on my more expensive watches. My only minor complaint is that the bottom piece tapers to a (basically) straight line, rather than a V. It makes the strap look a *tiny* bit less formal, but it's barely noticeable when you're wearing the strap so it really doesn't bother me at all.
I bought the blue alligator band, which picks up the blue hands on my Seiko Cocktail Time and adds a nice little color pop. Quality is good. The leather is nice, the stitching is well-executed, and I couldn't find any problems with the fit and finish. It's not real alligator - it's top-grain cow leather, embossed with an alligator texture, which is fine at this price. The only nit-picks I have is that I'd prefer a very slightly darker shade of blue and a finish with just a little more shine. It has a satin finish and I think just a touch more shine would make it look even better with my watch. I'll probably buff some more shine into it myself. But as I said, those are pretty nit-picky complaints, especially for the price.
Bought this to use with a smart watch (ticwatch c2). You can see the side by side with the original (grey) band in the photo. The Barton band is gorgeous and high quality, however it is a bit short. It is supposed to fit up to an 8" wrist, but be warned; that is on the last hole leaving no "tail" to tuck into the band loops. This is due to the short clasped strap coupled with the thickness of the band.
So far I can say that I really like the way it looks on my Galaxy watch and blue bezel. As for how long it will hold up, that is yet to be seen and only time will tell. Very easy to install and remove and I needed that because I use my watch to track my workouts and I like the ability to quickly swap bands. Package was super good looking as well. Overall my thoughts and hopes are high for this watch band. I'll post up an update in 6 months and see if there's a difference.
Great quality band. As stated in another review, this is “top grain” rather than full grain, and they are very clear about that. I don’t think anyone should have any issues with the quality of the leather. The quick release is also a wonderful feature. It’ll make it easy to switch back to my black band when needed. I will definitely purchase from Barton again.
Thicker near the bezel and thinner & softer on the tail-end. Love it! Exactly what I was looking for. Impressive build quality. Will definitely buy more. This is my Skyhawk which just got that Breitling Cockpit B50 sort-of makeover!! ☺️
I get through quite a few leather watch bands and found this brand online, I liked the design and decided to try them. I am very impressed! The quality and finish is as good as a band costing three times the price, I particularly like the quick change spring bars as I like to change my watch bands regularly. I accidentally ordered the wrong size at first and contacted the people at Barton, they could not have been more helpful and the replacement arrived in two days. I will definitely be getting all of my watch bands from Barton in future. Very pleased.
The 22mm straps are better quality than the 20mm straps, I've bought both from this company and was very happy with the 22mm strap, but not so much with the 20mm strap, the 22mm strap was better than the 20mm strap, I would recommend the 22mm strap over the 20mm strap, you won't be disappointed with the 22mm strap, go for the 22mm strap.
This is exactly what I was looking for. Looks great, good quality and very easy to fit. One slight downside was that the length of the band meant I could only use the very last hole to fasten. It is obviously designed for a child or ladies wrist size.
great quality and very easy to replace , no need for trying to fit it in,its so simple and easy
Very good quality, easy to install it and beautiful colour.
