As I sit in the garden on a warm Saturday in May, I peer down at my watch and the Oslo blue strap which has been on my wrist since November 2022. The Oslo strap still looks as good as new but it is time for a change. A different look, for a different season. Something slightly lighter, maybe a brighter colour or maybe a combination of straps. This gave me the idea of sending a message out to the group chat to decide on the best straps for Summer 2023. See the top picks from the Watch And Strap team below.
The Rome: Olive Green Italian Leather Strap
A light weight watch strap handcrafted using soft Italian leather. A personal favourite of ours, the Rome strap pairs perfectly with any watch. With its subtle grain, pale olive colour and contrast ivory stitching, the strap gives a vintage look to your prized timepiece. Click here to see the full Rome Collection.
The Paris: Turquoise Suede Watch Strap
An old favourite that is guaranteed to catch the eye. The bright turquoise colour of the Paris turquoise suede watch strap brightens up any watch. Padded to give the strap a substantial yet comfortable feel and hand stitched with contrast ivory stitching. Click here to see the Paris turquoise suede watch strap.
The Florence: Saffron Orange Saffiano Leather Watch Strap
Following the theme of adding some summer colour to your watch, the Florence saffron orange watch strap is a must have strap in your collection. Made using Saffiano leather (originally invented by Mario Prada), the Florence collection is a hardwearing, lightweight strap. Easy to keep clean and sweat resistant due to the waxed leather.
