What do you mean by "Don't settle for the competitions PAINTED EDGES"?
There are some competitors out there using painted edges on their straps for Audemars Piguet watches. We chose to take the more expensive route and turn edge the straps just like the factory does. This requires more skill and material but in the end looks better and will last longer. Painted edges tend to crack and your strap will not look as good in the future. We want to bring the highest quality product to you the customer so we chose this method.
Do your AP Bands and straps fit just like OEM?
Yes. Our AP Bands line of straps fit exactly like OEM. There are no gaps or alignment issues. They are a perfect fit.
Are your AP Bands and straps reinforced like OEM?
Yes. We think our reinforcement is better. Too many times we have seen customers of Audemars Piguet watches with their precious OEM straps torn where the metal retainer is. We have engineered a special composite that is flexible enough where it will NOT tear your strap but durable enough where it will not crack.
Do you offer different sizes? I have a very small wrist.
Yes. We offer a short, regular and long version of all our straps.
The short version is the standard length of 105mm x 70mm however an extra hole is punched to accommodate a wrist as small as 5.25 inches. In some cases we do have a short version which can be 90mm x 55mm, 105mm x 60mm, etc.
