For nearly 20 years, watchmaker Eugene Ho has been making luxury timepieces for the likes of Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, Timberland, Ecko and Reebok. Now he’s branched out on his own. His startup, Juuk (pronounced “juke”), makes beautiful, high-end bracelets for Apple Watches. Juuk’s wristbands rival Cupertino’s aesthetics and quality — but cost half the price.

Juuk’s bands come in different styles and sizes, with offerings for both men and women.

Whether working from their shop in Brooklyn, New York, or from the mini leather workshop in the back of their customized 1977 Toyota Chinook, E3 Supply Co. do things the old-fashioned way.

All E3 bands bear the trademarks of the shop: hands-on craftsmanship, top-quality materials and a seriously cool vibe. If you are looking for a distinctive, handmade (and made in America) Apple Watch band, check out the E3 Supply Co. line in the Cult of Mac Watch Store.

Nyloon

Show your pride and joie de vivre with Nyloon's rainbow band.

Based in sunny southern Spain, Nyloon is comprised of a group of tech and Apple enthusiasts with a special love for Apple Watch. Wanting to use the famous NATO strap with their Apple Watches, but unable to find nice versions anywhere, Nyloon was formed.

Early adopters of the NATO strap were attracted to its usefulness and “tacti-cool” street cred. Nyloon has taken this into account in designing its straps to offer a seamless blend of form, function and fashion. Made with ballistic-grade nylon that’s thicker and tougher than ordinary polyester bands, Nyloon’s straps are built to withstand the most adverse weather conditions.
