Choosing the Best Watch Bands That Fit Your Lifestyle
Adams Jewelers has a great selection of watches that pair very well with all kinds of watch bands. Different bands have varying functions and styles, so choosing what kind of band you should go with really depends on your lifestyle. Having a good sense of what you will be doing and where you will be when wearing your watch should definitely weigh in when figuring out which type of band will be perfect for you.
There are a few different types of watch bands that are extremely popular today when pairing them with fine timepieces. These types include metal, leather, rubber, and NATO bands. Each one has their own unique benefits and style.
Leather straps are one of the most widely used and popular materials used for watch bands. They can be rustic, vintage, and professional in appearance which allows them to be worn when dressing casually or formally. You can find leather straps in a range of basic hides to exotics like snake, alligator, and lizard. Even imitation leather is made for those with more of a conservative budget. Leather straps offer comfort and a certain dimension of style that others do not.
Metal bands are the other most widely used and popular materials used to hold a timepiece to your wrist. Metal bands are extremely sturdy and can hold up to outdoor use more than any other type of band. Mostly made of stainless steel metal bands can be very affordable without losing much in terms of appearance and rigidity. However, if you are looking to splurge on a band, they are also made from many kinds of precious metal. Metal bands usually pair better with a casual, sporty style than with formal attire. Another material used for a sporty look that is able to take the wear and tear of the outdoors is rubber. This material is durable, lightweight and affordable. The polycarbonate blends used to make them keep them from getting dry and brittle and are usually infused with vanilla scents to keep them smelling nice after getting wet.
One of the hottest trends today is NATO bands. These bands are made up of fabric, usually nylon, which allows them to come in a huge variety of colors and patterns. These straps are affordable, extremely durable, and sophisticatedly sporty. These are very popular today because they dry quickly and don’t stick to the wrist after getting wet and are easily washable and can seamlessly be dressed up or down.
The wide selection of fine timepieces that Adams Jewelers offers can all pair beautifully with whatever type of watch bands fit your lifestyle best. So don’t hesitate to call, click, or visit Adams Jewelers today!
