Run, don't walk from a leather band Capeland...
on June 13, 2014
I've owned a Capeland with a leather band for five years. After two years the band wore out and when I went to buy another, it was over $100. Keep in mind the band is actually two very short pieces of leather you attach the hardware to. A couple of years later the band was due for replacement again...it was now almost $300!! Now I'm starting to think this is a scam similar to ink jet printers that cost $50 but every time you need ink its another $50.
I love my watch, but I'll be damned if I ever buy another leather band Swiss watch; it is utterly ridiculous what they charge for the strips of leather. Love the watch...but buy a metal band !!
