For the ultimate in refined, high-quality leather accessories, look to Italy’s centuries-old leather-making tradition. Now Apple Watch lovers can wear a little bit of this fine leather on their wrists in the form of Meridio’s Vintage Collection bands for Apple Watch.

These are beautifully made bands. And, we have the entire Vintage Collection on view in Watch Store.

Italian leather Apple Watch bands

Italy is among the “big five” fashion capitals of the world: Paris, Milan, London and New York.

Italian leather, however, is in a class by itself. Distinguished by its selection of only the highest-quality hides, which are then vegetable-tanned by real, live craftsmen, Italy makes leather that is long-lasting and unique — and can run upward of six times the price of lesser leather.

Meridio is a small assemblage of artisans who hand-make leather bands for Apple Watch in an ancient tannery in Tuscany. (The region’s capital, Florence, is particularly famous for its leather production.)

The company seeks to combine the practicality and innovation of the Apple Watch with the inherent quality of Italian leather manufacturing.

Apple Watch bands handmade in Italy

Bands in Meridio’s Vintage Collection are made from supple and elastic Nappa calf’s leather that is meticulously tanned and cut. Nappa leather is a particularly soft and practical material that develops a beautiful patina over time.

Coordinating stitching highlights the rich leather of the straps. The bands themselves have a subtle heft to it — I can feel the quality in workmanship and materials.

This particular leather Apple Watch band comes in four different-colored leathers: Arctic Night (deep blue), Colonial Red, Dried Herb, Smoked Walnut and Touchstone (deep gray), all with complementary stitching.

Choose from six adapter and hardware finishes to complement your Apple Watch: gold, rose gold, black, space gray, stainless steel and silver. I, personally, love the black.
