It takes a lot of time, effort and money to assemble a great collection of watches. Unless you are wealthy, you probably own just one high-quality watch that you wear every day. Even if you do own only a single watch, you still have options for altering your look. You can invest in a collection of fashionable watch bands and swap them out whenever you feel like you need a change.
Fashion and technology have always found ways to complement each other. Do an online search to see how many different Swatches are available. You can find a huge variety of cell phone cases in a wide range of colors and designs to match any mood, personality, or occasion. The same is true for watch bands. You can find watch bands in many different materials and colors and some even have a special purpose. The watch industry has always understood the importance of combining fashion with technology.
Thom Browne is a designer who is exploring the next phase in the relationship between technology and fashion by creating watch bands for the Apple watch. Browne knows how important it is to the consumer to find products that combine everyday technology with fashion. He has a deep appreciation for the technology offered by the Apple watch even though he does not have one. Browne has been providing consumers with great fashion options since 2003 with his ready-to-wear clothing for women and men as well as his made-to-measure clothing line for men. Consumers are investing a lot of money in Smart watches, and he knows how much they will appreciate having a line of designer straps available to customize their own watches.
Can we expect other fashion designers to follow this trend? Any company that makes watch straps would be crazy not to explore the opportunity to apply their fashion designs in a way that Apple watch owners will find appealing. After all, any consumer who has enough cash to buy such an advanced watch will not mind paying a little more to have a watch strap reflects their own personality and sense of style. Vera Wag, Burberry and other well-known designers should be exploring ways to capitalize on this new marketing opportunity.
Regardless of whether you own a bracelet watch or a watch with a traditional strap, you have many options for stylish bands to suit your own fashion sense. Watches are functional, but that does not mean they cannot be fashionable at the same time. You can select an elastic band, a butterfly clasp or a buckle clasp and find stylish bands or straps made of precious metals, cloth, plastic, rubber or leather. The body of your watch should last for several years but the strap will become worn over time, which is why watch manufacturers make it easy for you to replace it whenever you want to. All it takes is a few seconds to change the strap on your watch to match your clothing or suit your mood.
