    Smooth Leather (not pebble grain) watch band?

    I want a leather watch band or two for a simple dress watch. Where do you recommend i pick one up? A lot of the NATO strap sites seem to be a little too casual or flashy for my liking. Just a nice leather strap and it does not have to be pricey at all.

    Hadley Roma's oil tanned leather is one of my favorites as far as smooth calf skin goes.

    I have several Di Modell bands. High quality in a bunch of different styles. I have gotten mine from http://www.fredawatchstraps.com/dimodell.html

    Can't go wrong with the pricing. Leather seems to be holding up real well.

    panatime has tons of straps. TONS. Hadley Roma is pretty decent for the cash. They require some break in but get comfortable. I lean towards more casual straps but have been satisfied with martu and coloreb.

    If you want a really wide selection checked out strappedfortime.com. I have been pleased with their watch bands in the past for the price.

    Fluco pigskin are my new favorite smooth watchbands and in my experience are a step up from Hadley Roma: http://www.holbensfinewatchbands.com...leather-brown/
