Common Questions When Buying a Asketica Watch Band
We craft our watch bands by hand from the finest materials with a keen eye for detail. Using only the most skilled techniques, every strap we make is given our full attention and love for detail. It takes a lot of time to make strap, but we think it’s worth it. There are a lot of things in this world that have lost meaning because they’re just “mass-produced” as cheaply as possible. We like to go against this trend
Due to being made to order, the making time for watch band is about 3-8 days, depending on the current workload. We try to complete it faster, but quality is the priority. When we receive your order, we start making watch strap from scratch. Selection of materials, cutting, sewing and so on. Then we inspect all the details to make sure it’s ready.
We work with UPS courier delivery service, one of the best delivery services in the world. Your order will be in your hands in 4-9 days after shipping.
We make the largest number of variations when it comes to watch straps. You can order a watch strap to fit any watch. 16mm, 17mm, 18mm, 19mm, 20mm, 21mm, 22mm, 24mm.
We also have a wide selection of strap length sizes to choose from that best suit your particular needs. If you don’t find size that you need, just write us a message and we make it for you.
If you made a mistake with the size when ordering, we will also accept the strap back or exchange it for another one. The only moment, you will have to pay for the delivery. If an error occurred due to our fault, we will take delivery on ourselves.
Before each shipment, we make measurements of the product, and check them for compliance with the dimensions that you provided.
If you want to choose the exact size, but do not know how, then write to us in any of the messengers at +7 926 905-95-01 and we will be happy to help you.
We can send photos or videos of your strap to you once it’s ready. Be sure to put your request in the special field we provide with each order.

Can't describe how satisfied I am with the quality, the design, and the workmanship. And on top a great service and trustworthy. I liked the picture of the strap on the website but since it was my first time to place such an order, I was a little skeptical in the beginning. But after communicating with the seller, I felt how honest, professional and skilled is the seller. The strap fitted beautifully on my vintage 18kt solid gold Omega watch.
Beautiful leather, rich in color and feel and even smell! Well made and stitched, it looks and feels great. It was the perfect solution for my small, vintage trench watch, giving it just enough “presence” to compensate for its diminutive size while remaining true to its vintage styling and military roots. Highly recommended.
I ordered one of these watch bands in a custom 22mm to 16mm taper. The result has an extremely high quality feel and finish. This is probably the best watch band I own. You won’t regret picking one of these up!
these straps are fantastic! I have now 3 of them. I have bought loads of straps and the quality of the leather far exceeds all the custom straps from both independent and big name tanneries I have purchased in the UK, and compared to the like of Hirsch are in a completely different league. I have 2 Japanese cordovan and a borello dark brown. they are quite solid to start with but soften and age beautifully. Simon is incredibly responsive to all my alterations and custom requirements and has given advice to padding thickness and lengths etc. I will end up buying more I'm sure. My wife now also has one and I am persuading my boss to get one too. postage is slow, but comes all the way from Russia. but the wait is worth it!
Great quality (stitching, side painting, back finish) and unique/attractive leather patina. Rolex Submariner looks fantastic on this strap. Low thickness also makes this strap highly comfortable and much more refined than typical bund straps. Good value for money. Highly recommended!
I couldn't ask for a better watch band than my new Whiskey leather Bund watch band. It fits so well my new Seiko Alpinist. The quality is outstanding. The watch looks better than with the provided Seiko watch band (in black leather). The green dial matches perfectly Asketica nice Whiskey color leather band. That band is top quality. It is very sturdy and will age beautifully. Communication with Semyon (the artisan who makes these superb watch bands) were excellent from before my purchase (I had a few questions beforehand) to reception. It took a few weeks to reach me here in Canada but it was more than worth it. You can buy with confidence because you will never regret your purchase!
This is a perfect bund band for a woman or a man. I am allergic to the metal on my Shinola watches. Now I can wear my favorite brand and my new favorite band! The wax is easy to burnish and it is beautiful. Thank you so much!!!
Everything about this transaction was top notch, from the interactions with the seller on getting customizations right, to the actual product itself. I own many leather straps, and this one is by far the most well-made , aesthetically pleasing, and premium feeling by some margin. I will definitely be purchasing more from this maker. I recommend you do the same.
Love this watch band. This my second one in different color. Well made and very comfortable to wear
Really great quality . Truly minimalistic and thinnest bund you'll find out there.. shipping took a while but we'll worth it! Only thing is based on the design, it is quite difficult to put on springbars. But hey, I love it.
Perfect, very beautiful straps! I've bought 4 straps with my first order and was very excited when i got the parcel. It was packed and wrapped nicely. That smell of great quality leather filled the room when i opened the box. The straps look exactly as pictured, very high quality stitching and lining, beautiful texture. Good thickness, feels very comfortable and looks really premium. I've already recommended Asketica to all my friends who collect watches. Thank you Asketica and see you soon again!
I guess it's my 6 strap from Semyon, always getting premium quality straps, no regrets, communication on high level as well! If you are looking for high quality straps with reasonable prices, Semyon is your person!
Practically one of the best watch strap I've ever purchased, and I have a lot! Craftsmanship at it's finest! The hand burnished edges of the leather and the saddle stitchings are perfect. Compared to machine stitched straps from Bulang & Sons or Hodinkee these handmade straps are definitely a step up.

Watch straps are the most important part of the watch. It is not just a functional part but also an aesthetic piece that completes your look. We use only premium leathers from Zermatt from Haas tannery on lining or premium goat leather from France to provide you with the best quality straps.
We use leather from
the world’s best tanneries
The quality of materials is one of the most important points in our work. We strive to ensure that the strap on the hand delivers aesthetic and tactile pleasure to its owner. Therefore, the leather from which we sew, we buy only from time-tested tannins.
