Hello, I’m Tom from Basic Bands. I’m a guy who loves watch bands and straps and this is my blog, Basic Bands. If you have a great watch strap you’d like to show off, send it in! If you make or sell bands, send us some pictures of your stuff. All images should be at least 740 pixels wide. You can contact us via Reddit or the WatchuSeek forums with the username band_fancier.

If you’ve got a watch and you’re looking for some watch strap inspiration, let us know what type of watch you have and we’ll see if there’s enough interest to do a post about it.

Check us out on Facebook, Instagram or visit our Pinterest page for more watch strap inspiration.

Additionally, we are a member of the Amazon Associates Program. Please consider supporting this blog by shopping for watches and watch bands through our Amazon Associates Shop. We’ve collected a lot of watch straps and watch accessories and put them all in one place. Many of the watch strap makers we feature on this blog also sell on Amazon, so if you’re looking for a basic brown or black watch strap or colorful NATO, you can find a lot of affordably priced options on our Amazon page.

We are affiliates for a number of online watch shops. We are a Jomashop affiliate, a safe place to buy watches online. Many of the watches featured on the site are available on the Jomashop Website. We are also an affiliate for Authenticwatches.com and Fossil (the watch brand).

We are also an Etsy affiliate, which is basically the same program as Amazon but for Etsy. You can support this blog from buying a strap from your favorite custom strapmaker through our affiliate links. You can find a list of our favorites shops on our Etsy profile.

Basic Bands is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program, an affiliate advertising program designed to provide a means for sites to earn advertising fees by advertising and linking to Amazon.com.

Please read our Privacy Policy if you’re interested in seeing what we use on our website to track visitors. You can also see what tracking codes we use by looking at our website code, as they are all labeled with comments.
