I just got my first third party band from Amazon. It was a 42mm brown leather watch band of Jisoncase.It looks really nice but just a little big, may be my wrist is too small. The leather is very comfortable ,and the color also beautiful, the most main is a lot cheaper than the apple's store, it's only $15.99.So,next time,I think i will buy again from this seller.
Lou Snutt has never had one case of bad buys using 3rd party sellers.
Some folks may have, but not ole Lou.
Another source is Amazon Warehouse Deals. Bought a Bulova Chrono
which I'm sure was a customer return. Sans shipping box (slightly
roughed up by USPS and no hang tags or manual) MSRP much higher
than purchase price. 30% savings. Watch is solid with no issues so far.
