A few years ago my dad gave me one of his old watches and I’ve been wearing it ever since. It has seen a lot in its time with me, and unfortunately it has suffered some damage.
Most recently the little strap that holds the band down ripped, so I purchased some scrap leather and went to work.
I first removed the old band. Then cut out a strip of leather roughly the same size. Next, I poked holes into the leather using a needle, and then I used some fishing line to thread the strip together around the watch band.
