Leather Strap Luxury…

Leather strap watches offer an air of prominence and time-honored distinction  to the wrist.

cosTiming is everything for today’s top executives, especially when you’re one of the leaders of the free world. Today is Presidents Day across the United States. Although much attention has been paid to the moderately priced Timex and Jorg Gray wristwatches worn by recent Presidents Obama, Bush and Clinton respectively, many of their predecessors knew a thing or two regarding time-keeping excellence.

Bush have been seen wearing their Vulcain Cricket watches while in office, while many of the others have chosen not to wear them.

Omega Seamaster Adventures

For generations the Omega Seamaster watch has been one of the most popular and sought-after diving watches for both men and women.

Leather Watch Classics

Leather strap watches are a popular choice for many men and women today. Whether it’s the supple quality and luxurious feel that leather gives, the ability to coordinate the strap color with the rest of a fashion ensemble or the time-honored vintage appeal, leather watches are prominently featured in many prestigious watchmakers’ collections and are among their best-selling styles.

The use of leather straps on timepieces actually dates back to the origin of wristwatches in the early 1900s, when Louis Cartier designed the Santos Watch for aviator Alberto Santos-Dumont, who required a timepiece he could wear on his wrist while flying. A pocket watch which was widely used at this time was considered too cumbersome to handle in flight.OMEGA-43113412202001

The first Cartier Santos watch featured a slender metal tank case presented on a leather strap. Prior to this, wristwatches featuring small cases and embellished jeweled bracelets were designed for women.

Leather wristwatches have continued to remain popular even after 1950’s, when many watchmakers started to offer bracelet models for both men and women.

Leather strap watches are the focus this week at luxury retailer TheWatchery.com. with the site’s Leather Watch Classics Event.

Over 400 men’s and women’s timepieces are featured in the promotion, including styles from Breitling, Cartier, Versace, Lucien Picard, Invicta, Bvlgari, Maurice Lacroix, Oris, Gucci, Eterna, Bulova Accutron, Bedat & Co., Ritmo Mundo and Michael Kors.
