Watch Straps

Luxury Status of Watch Straps

Watch straps are available in a plethora of different styles and nowadays as we prosperous folk work to grow wealthier, it is becoming ever more appealing to spend more money on that new gizmo, gadget or gift, such as a luxury watch. Having been in the market for high end timepieces, prior to this revelation I’m about to share with you, I never stopped to question if “the flash was worth the cash”.

Luxury watches certainly do come with a luxury status… and a similar looking price tag (if one at all). It was made clear to me when finding a watch strap for a friend, that in reality a luxury watch is no match for a high quality black leather watch strap, paired perfectly with an elegant timepiece. Creating that “luxury status” can be made affordable if you’re looking in the right places. Choose a watch bezel/ design and add a simple, stylish leather watch strap that will perfectly accompany your choice. Below is a small list of suggestions for different types of watch and watch straps combinations to create that luxury status without the cost:

  • Alligator skin………………………………….Silver. Thin case with a large bezel.
  • Black leather………………………………….Silver or brushed chrome large bezel.
  • Blue leather…………………………………..Silver. Thick case with large lugs.
  • Nylon…….…………………………………… Traditional silver.
  • Rubber………………………………………..Black or vibrant colors.
  • Tan…………………………………………….Gold, Silver or Rose Gold case.

Of course, there are far more options than those listed above but a few examples of how affordable watch straps could take a lower end watch or timepiece and give it a new, luxurious lease of life. Get customising with your watch straps!

Finding the Proper Luxury Watch Straps

Styles change throughout the years and it’s now very much unorthodox to see someone with a timepiece other than a watch such as a pocket watch which doesn’t require a watch strap at all. Again, a pocket watch is a luxury, – merely as a statement piece – sometimes used by those who wish to retain heritage or hold on to family heirlooms. Though for those who are after something more current there are plenty of options to choose from.

Shifts in technology and the release of iWatches resulted in a huge boost in silicone rubber being the material of choice for fitness and casual watch bands – due to their highly durable nature, elasticity, easy replacement if you decide to switch colours. Meanwhile, for a casual or nautical look thin, tanned leather seems to totally outstrip other custom options. Yet still, a simple padded black leather watch strap remains timeless for formal or corporate occasions where comfort may become a priority. As I’m sure you can tell, I am a firm believer that it is not the watch case which makes up the sophisticated, luxury look of a wristwatch – but the endless choices of watch straps in all types of materials can be perfectly and affordably matched to create an eye catching luxurious feel without the obscene price tag. All in all then, the flash of a new case definitely isn’t worth your cash!
