    "Affordable" leather Nato/stud watch band options?

    A recent discovery of an old thread about a cheap leather stud band prompted me to ask if anybody has any current recommendations for this. I am looking for a basic leather slip thru band to make the swapping easier on my weekender and beater casio. any recommendations? Not really a fan of the Crown and Buckle offerings and would love to find cheaper than FFF. Might just try my hand at making one soon.

    Michael's? About $4 a piece IIRC.

    In the leather bracelets, beads, and doo-dads section. They only come in one size, though - 20mm.

    Here are some cheap, traditionally-styled leather NATOs as well.

    Quality is probably not great, given the price.

    that is the one that inspired this post but I was looking for a backup option in case this one isnt around any more.

    Not sure of the quality of the leather Nato straps but I've purchased a number of the regular Nato straps and they've been pretty decent.

    Just spend the money and get one from FFF. The guy is a really nice guy and the straps are well worth the money. I have four straps from him and they are amazing. I'm actually wearing one right now.

    worth is completely relative, but glad you are enjoying yours and thanks for the pics. good looking combo. For my money, if I am spending north of 50 I am going to get the supplies and try my hand at making them myself....which looks to be my best option right now. I couldn't find the michaels band at the store near me.
