Watch Band

And last but not least, my custom watch band arrived this evening. 2-day delivery took two weeks thanks to the USPS — but the band is really nice and even fits my 8.5″ gorilla wrists.

Hard to see in the picture, but its oxblood – a dark reddish brown.

Better picture of the color. It’s distressed, so the color darkens at the edges of the leather, and the brass fittings are really good quality.

It’s brand new, so it’s stiff and a little tight, but that will work out over time because it’s leather.

The Apple Watch works with it; ECG, Blood Oxygen, Heart Rate — all of the sensors appear to function just fine.

It was made by Rockstar Leatherworks, and now that I’ve seen his work first-hand — I can recommend him if you need something leather made.
