Whether they are rebuilding vintage motorcycles or crafting Apple Watch straps, the folks at E3 Supply Co. do everything by hand. It’s not that they can’t afford fancy robots to get the job done — the small team of three prefers to do things this way.

Whether working from their shop in Brooklyn, New York, or from the mini leather workshop in the back of their customized 1977 Toyota Chinook, they do things the old-fashioned way. And now Cult of Mac is thrilled to offer E3 Supply’s handcrafted leather Apple Watch bands in our Watch Store.

Feeling rugged and maybe a little bit Roman? Go ahead and swap out the standard strap that comes with your new Series 3 for something a little more Ben Hur-ish.

The Cuff Strap by Jack Foster fits the bill, and the rich leather juxtaposed with the sleek Apple Watch looks really good. Better yet, these beautiful cuffs are handmade and very high-quality, yet cost just a fraction of what you’d spend for Hermès’ similar double-buckle leather strap.

Jack Foster’s beautiful collection of leather cuffs and bands for Apple Watch are available to check out in our Watch Store.
