The official Apple Watch Modern Buckle Band is currently available on Amazon for $127. Normally selling for $149, today’s deal represents one of the first significant price cuts we’ve seen, bringing the price down to a new Amazon low. The Modern Buckle strap is one of the more premium styles in Apple’s catalog of official Watch bands, with a genuine Granada leather construction. This is in addition to a secure two-piece magnetic closure and an inner layer of Vectran weave for extra power.
A small French tannery established in 1803 produces the supple Granada leather for this elegant band.
The smooth top-grain leather is lightly milled and tumbled to maintain its refined texture.
What looks like a solid buckle is actually a two-piece magnetic closure that’s delightfully simple to secure.
Apple also added an inner layer of Vectran weave for strength and stretch resistance. It’s the same material NASA used to make the landing airbags for the Mars rover spacecraft.
The band fits 145–165mm wrists.
