Perforated Rally Watch Straps | Rally Racing Leather Watch Band Collection

When you think about it, car racing and watches are very much alike, as they both focus on accuracy and precision with the use of their engine or caliber/movement.

Rally straps were initially designed to help with perforation, ventilation and breathable for the driver during long hours of a rally race.

The concept and design of a rally race strap were inspired from car modifications by cutting holes or replacing metal parts on a car with materials like carbon fiber to help improve the speed by reducing the overall weight on the car.

Regardless of what inspired the concept or design for a rally race strap, whether it was for ventilation and breathability, perforations does help reduce the heat and the overall weight of the car.

Rally race straps are great for summer wear, as it helps with ventilation. Although rally race straps are often paired with chronograph watches, but because the rally race straps from Strapcode are not too thick and bulky, it practically looks good on any mid to smaller size watches.
