Since the Apple Watch was first released last Spring, we’ve seen a plethora of alternative bands for this timepiece. Apple has a handful of official options. You can also find cost-effective alternatives on Amazon. As the accessory market has grown, one of our favorite trends has been established watchmakers that have developed their own line of third-party bands.

Throne Watches out of Brooklyn, NY has leaned on its expertise to craft a couple of different options designed specifically for Apple’s device. Today, we’re launching a giveaway that will deliver a new handcrafted watch band to three lucky 9to5Toys readers. Head below to find out how you can win one for yourself!

Throne offers two different leather options designed specifically for Apple Watch. The bands are sourced from American tanneries and come in Cognac and Black in both 38/42mm sizes. Each model features an Apple Watch-compatible lug, hand-stitched accents, and a double band-keeper.

Although Apple offers official leather bands, it has a very manufactured feel to it. Throne has done an excellent job of blending design and craftsmanship for a luxurious handmade feel. I’ve been using the Cognac band for a few months now. It’s a great option for everyday use or dress up occasions. Even better, your friends likely don’t have one, so your Apple Watch will standout from the rest.
