7 Reasons We Love Longvadon's Caiman Series Bands For The Apple Watch

By Greg King — April 26th, 2019

There seems to be no serious option for Apple Watch owners who want a truly beautiful, quality leather band for their Apple Watch without either having to resort to buying a cheap short-lasting knock-off or then paying hundreds of dollars for the (somewhat boring) Apple partner bands.

That was of course until Longvadon came along, the brand that has completely changed the game.

  1. 1

    Ask anyone, they look absolutely gorgeous. Plain and simple.

    You can tell that the Caiman Series Apple Watch bands were carefully designed to the tiniest detail in Europe. Every tenth of a millimiter of thickness and width has been deliberately designed to perfectly complement your wrist whether you're wearing the new Apple Watch Seires 4 or the previous Apple Watch series.

  2. 2

    All bands come with an elegant & secure butterfly clasp.

    If you look at actual luxury leather bands used on traditional ultra high-end watches such as a Patek Philippe, a Jaeger-LeCoultre or a Rolex then you'll quickly see that they all use deployant clasps instead of regular Ardillon buckles for their added security and elegance. Therefore each Caiman Series band comes with a gorgeous stainless steel butterfly clasp.

  3. 3

    Available for Him & for Her.

    The Caiman Series bands not only come in a large variety of gorgeous leather colors and shades with stainless steel finishes to complement all of the different Apple Watch colors, but there's even a larger and thicker men's version and a thinner more elegant women's version as well.

  4. 4

    Their ultra-soft suede lining make them extremely comfortable to wear.

    Each Longvadon band comes with an ultra-soft suede bovine leather lining on the inside to guarantee a comfortable all-day wear while also giving the bands that luxurious touch that seems to be missing from all the other bands out there.

  5. 5

    Made of carefully selected genuine Top Grain bovine (cowskin) leather.

    Most Apple Watch bands out there are made of either PU Lether (polyurethane) or Genuine Leather which most of the time refers to the less durable, lower layers of a split animal hide. The upper layers of a split hide are called Top and Full Grain as they are closer to the actual surface of the hide and have much denser fibers that are tightly "woven" together. This makes them significantly more durable while also acquiring a beautiful patina over time. All Caiman Series bands use Top and Full Grain leather as opposed to the cheaper, less durable Split, Bonded or PU (faux) leather options.

  6. 6

    It was started by watch enthusiasts with real experience in the watch industry.

    Longvadon was founded by a couple of French brothers with a real passion for watches. As one of them; Robin, had just sold a watch company he'd been part of founding and was looking for a new project to take on, he convinced his photographer/filmmaker brother Sebastian who'd also worked on their previous watch brand to join him and together they headed down to the French Riviera and created Longvadon.

  7. 7

    Each pair comes in its own gorgeous Longvadon box specifically designed for the Longvadon watch bands.

    The hallmarks of true luxury accessories are quality and attention to detail. Every part of Longvadon's products have been meticulously designed to offer the best possible experience for the customer. Each pair of Longvadon watch bands come in a secure custom Longvadon box that's been designed to perfectly fit the Longvadon bands keeping them secure and in place during shipping while also providing a beautiful and luxurious unboxing experience.
