Product Information

Want to know more about Monowear gear? Here are some common questions about our merchandise.

Do your adaptors and buckles match my Apple Watch color?

We strive to match our adaptors and buckles to the color and finish of each Apple Watch model. You can expect a close match with these colors: Space Gray Aluminum, Silver Aluminum, Yellow Gold Aluminum, and Silver Stainless Steel.

Our Rose Gold Aluminum isn’t a perfect match and is more of a bronze/rose gold.

While we don’t make a matching Space Black Stainless Steel adaptor and buckle. Our Space Gray Aluminum is a good alternative and looks nice on this Space Black Apple Watch.

If you have a Silver colored Apple Watch make sure to get the correct material. The Silver Aluminum is a matte texture while the Stainless Steel is more polished. Check the back of your Apple Watch for more information on your model.

Where to look to figure out which type of color and finish of your Apple Watch model.

Will your bands fit my Apple Watch model?

Yes, our watch bands fit all past and current Apple Watch models. Check the back of your Apple Watch to find more information about the model, size, and finish.

What kind of leather is this?

Our leather is genuine fine leather.

How to take care of the leather band?

Usually when stain dries off, it is less apparent. Here's what we recommend to remove any stains.

  • Get rid of any excess stain/water
  • Use a clean, dry cloth or sponge to wipe away any residue still sitting on the leather, as this keeps it from settling in and worsening the stain.
  • Remove the outline
  • Use leather cleaner and a clean, dry cloth to wipe away the outline that forms around the spot. Spray or apply conservatively, and wipe gently. Repeat until the outline disappears or becomes significantly less visible.
  • Start cleaning the stain
  • Dip a clean sponge in water at room temperature, and wring it out so that the surface is just damp rather than dripping wet. Dampen the entire area surrounding the stain on the leather item, and then wipe the sponge gently along the stained area, moving out from the middle of the stain. Wipe the leather dry with a clean cloth, and wait for the surface to dry.
  • Wipe on a protectant
  • Apply saddle soap to condition the leather after the stain is gone and the leather is dry.

How to care for my Monochest?

  • Remove all the content inside monochest
  • Use a soft, slightly damp, lint-free cloth. Wipe the front cover and the inside to remove any dirt
  • Don't use windows cleaner, household cleaner, aerosol sprays, solvents, ammonia, abrasives, or cleaner containing hydrogen peroxide

Is my watchband waterproof?

Due to the nature of our fine quality leathers, our leather watchband are not waterproof. The leather, metal, and mesh styles can take some moisture, but we would not recommend using during swimming. Nylon and the Nylon Active styles are the only ones that are water resistant.

Are you nickel-free?

Most of our watchbands have a small amount of nickel on the clasp area except the nylon active watchbands that are velcro all the way through.
