Introducing Forstner Bands – Now Available at The Windup Watch Shop

Originally founded in 1920, Forstner Bands have always focused on making fine accessories for wrist watches. They never ventured into actual watchmaking territory, focusing only on making the best aftermarket bracelets in the game. Several of the most iconic bracelets of the mid century fall under Forstner’s name, including the Komfit and Klip. Forstner is best known for being the metal band of choice for NASA astronauts, who were often seen with the bands fitted to their trusty Speedmasters. The brand was recently relaunched in 2019, bringing back their most iconic bracelets, and more. They didn’t just straight copy them — there are several modern conveniences and additional security measures added to each model that make them even better than the originals.
