First time I purchased a watchband online and willing to try to do the physical change myself. Fully transparency, what made me pull the trigger on purchasing the Milano-Cognac Barenia was the price included a tool. After watching a video, I felt quite confident that I could do it. I received the strap within a week of ordering. Came in a cool tin (pkg) containing the tool and the strap. Although it took me a few minutes on each side, I was successful. I then proceeded to try on my new strap with a watch I really like. Turned out great ! I wanted to get a watch strap in a color (maple) that would match my belt and AE shoes that I also purchased for my daughter's wedding....perfect match ! Can't wait to pull off the ensemble, proudly showing off my daughter and my watch with my new Milano Strap. Will purchase from Milano again.
Sturdy and comfortable. Looks like it's going to last and it looks great on my watch. Arrived in the mail in only few days. The spring bars were tough to fit at first but have held securely so far.
Stunning strap. Had to get it after I bought the flat Barenia strap—you cannot go wrong with either one!
10/10. This strap far exceeded my expectations - it looks significantly better than straps purchased for double the price at local retailers. 100% would purchase again.
I received my cognac barenia strap today, and after putting it on my watch, had to reach out to thank you. The amount of care and craftsmanship put into making this piece is evident from the moment I opened the tin. The smell of genuine leather, that beautiful color that will patina over time, and the elegant lines and details (love the buckle) make this strap a standout. I just wanted to let you know that your work is very much appreciated, and I will absolutely be getting more straps from you and recommending others your way!
Only point of critique I can even think of is that it would be nice if there were options for strap lengths for those of us with narrower wrists.

How to Change a watch band with quick release spring bars
If your leather watch band has quick-release spring bars, the process of changing the band becomes even easier. Here's how you can use quick-release spring bars to change a leather watch band:
- Prepare the new leather watch band: Ensure that the replacement band has quick-release spring bars attached to it. These spring bars have small levers or buttons that allow for easy removal without the need for additional tools.
- Remove the old watch band: Place your watch face down on a soft cloth or surface. Locate the quick-release spring bars on the current watch band. They will have small levers or buttons on their ends. Simply press or lift the levers/buttons to release the spring bars from the lugs. Once both spring bars are released, you can easily slide off the old leather band.
- Attach the new watch band: Take the replacement leather watch band with the quick-release spring bars already attached. Align one end of the band with a lug on the watch case. Press the lever/button on the spring bar, allowing it to retract and fit into the lug. Repeat the process for the other end of the band, attaching it to the corresponding lug. Ensure that both ends of the new band are securely attached.
- Adjust the fit: Put the watch on your wrist and check if the new band requires any adjustments for a comfortable fit. If necessary, use the adjustment holes on the band to achieve the desired tightness or looseness.
With quick-release spring bars, you can easily change your leather watch band without the need for additional tools. It's a convenient feature that allows for quick and hassle-free band swaps.
