If you make high-quality products that everyone wants, there is the risk that the demand for your goods exceeds supply. On one hand that’s good (hey, we’re selling a lot!). On the other hand, that’s bad (why can’t I buy this?).

Such is the case with France-based Clessant, one of our favorite Apple Watch band makers. Fortunately, several Clessant bands that have been unavailable are now back in stock, ready to make your Apple Watch even more special. Check out the models below, featuring buffalo, ostrich and goat leather. All are available at the Cult of Mac Watch Store while supplies last.

The Taupe Nubuck Apple Watch Strap from Clessant is made of soft, suede-like nubuck buffalo leather — a top-grain leather that’s been sanded or buffed on the outside to produce a velvet-like, ultra-matte finish. It’s amazing to the touch. Another reason Clessant chose buffalo for this band: It’s one of the most resistant types of nubuck, retaining its texture longer than others.

The Black Barenia Apple Watch Strap technically wasn’t entirely out of stock, but only bands for smaller watches were available. Now the entire range of sizes is back. The band is made from rare, vegetable-tanned Barenia leather from the Haas Tannery in France. In time, this strap will develop a rich and subtle patina, and is resistant to scuffs and water. (Read our full review: Luxurious leather makes this Apple Watch band feel buttery-smooth.)
