They genuinely transform your Apple Watch from a small "wrist computer" into a stylish luxury timepiece.
You can tell that the Caiman Series Apple Watch bands were carefully designed to the tiniest detail by themselves in Europe. From the specific crocodile pattern leather - to the soft suede lining, every fraction of an inch in thickness and width has been custom designed to effortlessly turn your Apple Watch into a true style statement.
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.
Perfect for dressing up.
The main issue people have with the standard silicone Apple Watch bands is that although comfortable and great for exercising, they really don't fit well with a nice dress shirt, let a lone a suit and tie. Every band has its purpse and the stylish Caiman Series bands will not only fit but greatly enhance your outfit as you dress up.
The ultra-soft suede lining and bendy padding make them extremely comfortable to wear.
Each Longvadon band comes with an ultra-soft genuine bovine suede leather lining on the inner side of the band that's facing your skin - guaranteeing a comfortable all-day wear. On top of that the padding has been specifically selected to be bendy and help the band conform to your wrist as you wear the band in.
Made of carefully selected 100% genuine Top Grain bovine (cowskin) leather.
Most Apple Watch bands out there are made of either PU Lether (fake) or Split or Bonded leather which 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 significantly denser fibers that are tightly "woven" together. This makes them a lot more durable while also allowing the leather to acquire a beautiful patina over time. All Caiman Series bands use Top Grain leather as opposed to the cheaper Split, Bonded or PU (fake) leather options.
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.
