How to Choose the Right Strap for Your Watch?

A watch is crucial to every man’s wardrobe. It is a killer accessory that can weaken or improve your presence. If you want to make a good impression on every person you meet, you must learn how to pair your timepiece to your outfits. You can buy the classiest men’s watches in Malaysia, but if you don’t know how to match them with your overall look, you are still doomed.

One of the aspects you need to focus on is your watch strap. Below are some of the do’s and don’ts you must keep in mind when picking a good watch and strap combination every morning.

Respect the nature of your watch

Whether you are using an Omega Constellation, Jaeger LeCoultre or Breitling Navitimer, you need to learn how to dress around it. You wouldn’t want to match your white ankle sports socks with quality genuine leather derbies, right? It’s the same exact deal with straps. You must learn how to respect the nature of your sophisticated timepiece. For instance, don’t pair your Omega Seamaster with a light blue sharkskin strap.

Harmonize your watch with your own unique style

Once you wear your watch around your wrist, it becomes an extension and representation of your style and personality. You better learn how to put them all together, or else, it won’t look beautiful.

Why not add a hint of color to a monotonous outfit for a more artsy touch? Never overplay it by incorporating a pink button down or bright yellow pants. If you want to wear a luxurious Rolex or Patek Philippe, you must not aim for a human tropical cocktail look.


Never overlook your watch strap’s finish

A meticulous eye for detail would make all of the amazing difference. If you are in the market for a genuine leather watch strap, pay extra attention to the fineness and composition of the leather, as well as the other unique materials used. Furthermore, check the dye and stitching. Can you see some machine marks, or is it fine and polished?

When in harmony with other elements, a well-designed watch strap will improve any ensemble and any case.
