Welcome to F and E Buckles and Bands.
Thanks for Stopping in.

My name is Frank Bame and I am the owner of this Internet business. I offer high quality leather watch straps and watch repair tools at, what I think you will find, very reasonable prices. First, let me tell you a little about my products.
All of my watch straps are made in Hong Kong or China in modern factories with state of the art design and manufacturing facilities. If you check closely you might find out that quite a few of the watch straps on the market are made in China, and that includes many of the premium brands. The watch straps are made of fine European and American leathers. The hardware, on the watch straps is 316L surgical stainless steel. These products are made to last a long time.
My watchmaker's tools are all sourced from Anchor tools in India. These tools are manufactured in various countries throughout Asia.
Like most of you visiting my web site, I started as a watch collector. Although I own a Rolex and an Omega, I wouldn't consider myself a collector of fine European watches. I do, however, have quite a few Japanese, American and European quartz watches. What can I tell you, I love the various bells and whistles on these watches and, you can't beat them for a couple of hundred bucks!
Like many people, when a watch strap broke, I went off to the mall for a new one. Then came the Internet. I began buying my replacement watch straps from various Internet retailers. I noticed something about the products I was buying. Whether it was a cheap $5 watch strap or a Hirsch Carbon, they were made in China. I did months of research and communicated with various manufacturers in Hong Kong and China and, eventually, I found a couple of companies that would manufacturer reasonable quantities of very high quality product. That got me into this business.
Well, thanks again for taking the time to visit. I hope you find something you like.
