While the face of a watch may, on first appearance, be its defining feature, its strap is equally important, if not more so. Watch straps dictate the comfort and durability of the timepiece and are integral to its overall style and presentation. Watch straps are primarily distinguished by two characteristics–the material the strap it is made of and the style of the watch strap. Here are some of the most common.
- Rubber. Though not especially formal, rubber watch straps are durable and, typically, water resistant. This material is great for sports, boating, and casual wear.
- Leather. A timeless favorite, leather watches are incredibly versatile and can be worn formally or with casual attire. They do require regular cleaning with specialty products to maintain their appearance.
- Gold and Silver. Nothing says “elegance” quite like silver and gold watches. The choice between the two will depend upon personal preference, skin tone, and attire. Both gold and silver watch straps require regular polishing to maintain their shine.
- Stainless Steel. One of the most durable watch strap materials, stainless steel is commonly used in all parts of a watch. Like gold and silver, stainless steel should be cleaned regularly to stay shiny.
- Oyster. One of the most popular styles of watch strap, the oyster is distinguished by its three thick chain links. The style has been a favorite for decades since it was debuted by Rolex in the 1930’s.
- Jubilee. Another classic Rolex premier, the jubilee style features three smaller chain links embedded between two larger links.
- Aviator/Pilot. Originally fashioned by World War II-era pilots, these straps are typically leather and are designed for durability with multiple large rivets on the sides of the face.
- NATO. These military-inspired straps are among the easiest to remove and replace as they are made of one continuous piece of fabric. NATO watches are a typically inexpensive but classic style.
- Rally. This style features several perforations on the sides of the watch strap, a nod to the style of classic race car drivers who lightened the load of their cars with similar perforations in the body of the vehicle.
When it comes to watch straps, there are many styles and materials available, and these lists are by no means exhaustive. Visit Watches and Beyond to browse our extensive inventory of watch styles to find your perfect match.
Did you know that the color gold is associated with success, achievement and triumph? It sounds pretty accurate considering the feeling you may get from wearing a gold watch. There’s a luxurious feeling about it that gives an air of sophistication.
In some circles, people believe that wearing gold in itself brings about increased power, good health and success, but we know that it’s really how you feel that brings about these “superpowers.” Imagine how fashion has the ability to change us in that way. Just wearing something unique and beautiful can transform our mental image of how we feel about ourselves.
Watches and Beyond sells plenty of gold watches in a ton of different price ranges, but here are some that especially bring about that feeling of power.
This Longines watch features a gold tone dial with gold tone hand indicators and black index hour markers with a surrounding set of diamonds. Not only does it give a sense of success, it also has a feel of elegance.
This masculine Ulysse Nardin features a black dial that stands out perfectly against the gold. This is a bold watch.
Finally, this Cartier Ballon Bleu is a blend of masculinity and femininity, bold and soft. The black roman numerals give it a very business-like feel.
Golden. It’s a simple word with a surprising number of meanings – we know, we checked it up in the dictionary. Our search turned up the obvious meaning: made of gold. But it also turned up some other definitions, definitions people subconsciously associate with the sumptuous metal. Among them are “full of glowing vitality” and “full of happiness, prosperity, or vigor”. Golden connotes “destined for success” and “richly soft and smooth”. It’s no wonder gold-trimmed accessories are the mark of upscale designer brands. Wearing gold, be it in jewelry, handbags or watches, screams luxury and success. Want your appearance to communicate power? Choose one of the following gilded watches to do the talking for you.
