Okay... so I'm in the market for a watch and I found several that I really REALLY like. They're Harry Potter watches done in an elegant and sexy style. Here's the thing, they all have leather bands. What do you do in a situation like this? a) not buy any watch with a leather band, ever, no matter what or b) buy the watch and immediately change the band. B doesn't really seem right because having bought the watch supports the leather industry, even though changing the band does not promote it. *sigh* This is so annoying. They're such great watches.
