BOSAIL manufacturing based on the information and imagery that you provide, a sample prototype is produced. We can also use your CAD and 3D files to print out and modify designs, changes are made until you are satisfied with and approve the design. All reviews and inspections of your watch straps manufacturing are FREE!
For silicone watch strap and wristband, your prototype may be molded by a simple tooling, so increasing initial costs of setting up for manufacturing as compared to plastic. The cost of the silicone watch straps sample will vary with complexity and the processing of appearance.
Like with plastic, the sample time to initial imagery for rubber/silicone is about 10-15 working days. With silicone, we are able to finish a pre-production sample, because of using the simple tooling, time to production is as usual as plastic.
Times for creating a silicone sample or are typically 7-12 working days.

This silicone mold making process is typically about 20-30 days. Actual manufacturing time depends on quantities and complexity of each design.
Once production is completed, delivery times via ocean are approximately 30-40 days, while air freight times can vary from 2-10 days depending on the freight carrier.
Rush orders that can reduce full production times by roughly 40% are usually possible for an additional fee.
This rush time may also require a production-ready design.
Reorders of watch straps & wristband we’ve previously produced don’t require creation of the production molds， so production times will be greatly shortened.
5. Watch Straps & Wristband Costs
Pricing of each manufactured band & strap varies with the particular design, size, and quantities.
Much of the cost of watch strap or wristband is in the cost of the molds that are made for production. The molds are often complex and require multiple parts in order to get the highest quality reproductions.
We will limit these costs as much as possible without sacrificing quality. About customized watch band & strap, our quotes estimate expected mold and manufacturing costs. We will provide firm prices for both after you approve your prototype and are ready to begin production.
These prices are good for a fixed period, usually 30 days. If you include your postal code and country in your quote request, we will also estimate shipping costs.
Calculating precise shipping weights and volumes prior to manufacturing is very difficult, but we can often give you a general idea of likely final costs of the watch bands as delivered to your door or loading dock. When it is time to ship your completed order, we will have a firm quote based on actual measured weights and cubic volume of the shipment.
We work with different carriers to negotiate the lowest possible costs for either air freight or ocean freight. The costs for shipping, especially by ocean, can fluctuate throughout the year depending on demand for shipping due to holiday periods and the world economy. Because of these fluctuations, shipping quotes may only be guaranteed for 15-30 days.
