Android Watch with Homemade Leather Band

Posted on February 6, 2013

I received an Android Octopus (Octopuz?) watch for Christmas 2011.  I absolutely love the watch, but decided that I didn’t really like the rubber warch band that it came with.  For a while, I wore it with a cheap steel bracelet that I picked up years ago, but that just didn’t really look right on it.  Finally, I decided that I needed to do something about it, once and for all.   I’ve been messing around doing some leather work for a while now, so decided to make a leather band for it.  I cannibalized the original rubber band for the buckle and strap hold-down, so it’s still branded like it belongs on the watch.  I really like it this way.  To me, the band makes it seem semi-formal, not as casual as it originally was.
