Other Watch Straps

As well as there being leather and swatch watch straps, watch straps come in a huge variety of other materials and patterns. Because watches are used in such a large range of situations and for different activities, straps have to be made appropriately for their purpose.

Some other common types of watch strap are resin, nylon and rubber. As these are tough and durable, and quite often waterproof, they are used in sports applications such as when diving or windsurfing. The most common type of strap to be used for water sports is probably something like this resin style 2 watch strap:

Nylon straps are also strong, especially these high density nylon watch straps:

Watch straps with velcro can be extremely handy, as it means that you don't have to fiddle with the buckle to get them on and off. They too come in different colours, like the nylon velcro sports watch straps shown below:

Some watch straps are made from a combination of leather and nylon, like these combat-style leather and nylon watch straps:

Even some completely leather-made watch straps can be waterproof and safe for use whilst swimming or doing other water sports. These waterproof leather watch straps from Zuccolo, Rochet and Cie are a good example:
