 RACING HORWEEN LEATHER

BARTON RACING HORWEEN LEATHER WATCH BANDS

At BARTON Watch Bands, we obsess over designing quality products that meet the highest standard for fashion, function and fit. Based in the heart of Austin, Texas, BARTON was founded in the wake of many years of frustration with poorly designed, dysfunctional, low-quality watch bands.

Compatible Apple Watch Models

Small Apple Watch (38mm & 40mm)

Large Apple Watch (42mm & 44mm)

Skillfully crafted to evoke the nostalgia of 1960s & 1970s speed and motorsport, our Horween Racing Collection pairs perfectly with any series of the Apple Watch. The distinguishing perforations, originally designed to create a breathable strap for racetrack drivers, now makes a signature statement on your wrist. Our version features Dublin Horween leather, 316L stainless steel or black PVD hardware, and a soft top-grain Nubuck lining.

QUICK RELEASE MECHANISM

Integrated quick release spring bars allow you to swap straps in a flash… without any tools!

Dublin Horween is a vegetable-tanned leather and has been hand-glazed with a waxy feel. This premium treatment allows the natural characteristics of the leather to shine through. Be aware that a natural patina will develop over time, giving this watch band a worn-in, timeless feel. These simple imperfections will add a rich texture to any timepiece.

Pros & Cons

Pros

Great quality band with a classic look. This is my first Barton band. I knew they were good quality and when saw these racing style bands I pulled the trigger. The leather is nice and soft right out of the packaging, unlike other bands that feel rigid and need a longer break-in time. I wear my watch all day and didn't have any discomfort. The color is true to the product pictures (depending on your device, of course). I have thin wrists and didn't need to use the last one to have it fit. The favorite part of this is that I didn't realize there are quick release tabs for the leather band itself so any 22mm band will fit. I think I'll keep this one on though.

Very well made, fits the Apple Watch Series 6 perfectly! I'm a big fan of Barton watch bands, but this was my first time getting one for the Apple Watch. Like the other Barton products I've used, it's well made, extremely comfortable, and fits my watch perfectly. It looks really classy and is an excellent choice for pairing with the Apple Watch when you need to look a bit dressy. Would recommend without any reservation.

Awesome quality and color. This a really high quality band and the color is beautiful. It is easy to put on the watch and makes the apple watch look so much more elegant than the silicone bands. I don’t recommend getting it under water so you will want to change the watchband before you go swimming.

Cons

Very poor quality. Really poor quality. Leather is cracked and ripped after barely using it for 2 months. Very disappointing. The photos are after 2 months of use.

Square peg, round hole. Both the original and replacement purchases had the same issue where the buckle is too big for the holes.

Band is defective. I have had this watch band 3 months and it is cracked. Won't last much longer. Very disappointed.

Get this on Amazon.
