An Expert Watch Strap Guide

 

An Expert Watch Strap Guide

Without a strap, a watch is no longer the fashion accessory it deserves to be. These straps not only keep the watch on the wrist but are also important parts of the watch’s overall aesthetic. Some materials have important practical functions as well. Allow our guide to take you through your options for a stylish watch. 

 

Bracelet

Bracelet straps are made of metal, making them resemble a bracelet. They can be made of stainless steel, gold, silver, platinum, or any other hard and shiny material. Steel is, of course, a bit harder and more rugged than precious metal. For the most spectacular strap, a precious metal bracelet strap inset with diamonds is the ultimate choice. Explore bracelet straps with two tones for an even more intriguing watch. 

 

 

Leather

Leather straps have a peerless elegance and sophistication to them. Leather is versatile and goes with all kinds of cases. They are especially excellent when paired with smaller cases. Not all leather is the same, however. Alligator leather is more luxurious and better for dress watches and formal occasions. Meanwhile, calfskin is perfect for everyday wear. These types of straps come in a wide variety of colors. 

 

Rubber

Whether natural or artificially made, rubber is a material perfect for timepieces meant for the outdoors. Their naturally sleek appearance makes them stylish, especially when used with carbon timepieces. Rubber is practically essential for rugged designs as it is waterproof, shockproof, and will withstand any element. Their affordability and durability make them a favorite for the functional and practical.

 

 

NATO

These straps are made of synthetic fabric and are affordable while remaining durable. While not as resistant as rubber, they are pretty close, and their customizability means they can match every watch. As such, they are an ideal choice for those in pursuit of a resistant and rugged watch. NATO straps are becoming incredibly popular in recent years due to the trendiness of multi-hued watches. 

 

Mesh

Mesh straps have a chainmail-like design and are sometimes called Milanese steel. They are comfortable and refined, which makes them an exquisite alternative for leather. Milanese steel also looks fantastic for dress watches, especially if one is seeking a more eccentric strap than leather. It is a unique way of styling metal into a modern aesthetic.
