Contest winner, David Pearson shares his thoughts on the complete timepiece…


Another watch collector once told me “The last thing I look at when I look at my watch is the time.” This is only increased by the finish of a beautiful watch band to enhance the view.


Whether it be Exotic Crocodile Skin for my dressy Patek Phillipe Calatrava combined with a business suit and tie for a formal meeting. Oil Tanned Leather for my rugged Panerai Luminor with shorts, a polo shirt & boat shoes for a day on the water or a Rubber Dive Watch Band for my Seiko while working in the yard, a great band complements and completes a great looking timepiece.


A watch without the correct band is like a new car without keys or an empty wine glass, nice to look at, but not very useful and it must be the correct band for the particular style of watch. One size or style does not “fit all” it needs to complement the timepiece without detracting from it or being overpowered by it.


Together they make a complete picture, not two separate items, but an amalgam of complementary pieces that while separately are each masterpieces of craftsmanship, coming together to produce a full symphony for the visual senses.

    I recently purchased an Omega Speedmaster Moonwatch - I chose the stainless steel band option, although I thought the black strap with deployment buckle looked classier. I assumed that finding a good quality strap and deployment buckle would be a breeze. In short, it was very easy on the internet, with many offerings, but the lion's share of sites I came across on the internet offered very generic, and questionable quality straps and buckles . Many providers allegedly offered "Omega" straps and buckles - but clearly not original in appearance, fit or finish. After following many rabbit trails, and coming up empty, I finally found "Strapped for Time". They offered a substantial number of different types of deployment straps, and buckles - compatible with Omega; as well as other high end brands. The information and details offered for each strap and/or deployment strap was very complete, and based on what I ordered, and ultimately received was accurate. The ordering process was seamless, and the shipping was prompt - I chose the 1st Class mail option for my purchase. The quality of the strap I ordered is of the highest caliber, and perfectly matched up to my Speedmaster Moonwatch, and the deployment buckle. Absolutely on par with Omega OEM straps and buckles in fit and finish. I would highly recommend Strapped for Time.. Jeff (Delaware)
