Friendly Tip: Choose A Watch Bands

The watch bands. This little pvd coating accessory that may seem harmless to some, is not. It makes up no less than 50% of the aesthetics of a pvd coating watch, with the case, of course. If the vast majority of people who wear a watch cannot change dial, hands or bezel as the pvd coating please depending on the mood of the day, we can all, yes, absolutely all, change watch bands in the blink of an eye. 'eye.

If these Seiko kinetic watch bands can save the life of a box, breathe new life into it and restore its splendor to a forgotten piece, it can also ruin absolutely everything… So be careful. Here are some Seiko kinetic tips that will help you make the right choices when it comes to choosing a new dress for your watch.

The Type Of Watch

A Patek Philippe perpetual calendar will not be dressed in the same way as a Seiko kinetic diver, just as a pilot's chronograph with a thick and wide watch bracelet case will not be chosen in the same way as a Dress watch bracelet watch with a 35mm aperture from the 1950s. And I'm obviously not talking about the lug here.

“Miles Black” Watch Bands

The watch bracelet options are varied and numerous, don't worry, but I think we have to know how to show some respect towards our watch bands. In the same way that Prince Charles wouldn't be asked to wear sweatpants, we should never see old, slim, sleek alligator-print faux-leather watch bands (plastic Seiko kinetic watch options) watch bands… No, please. , is sin.

The Weight And Thickness Of The Case

IWC Seiko kinetic watch Big Pilot, Piaget Altiplano, do you see the nuance? These watch bands bracelet is there to highlight the Seiko kinetic watch box, to compliment it, and not the other way around. The thickness and construction of these watch bands bracelet must therefore be in harmony with this case. We always come back to this story of proportions and 20mm watch band balance. Yes, I know, it's recurring. It is, however, the basis.

Historical Glances?

Obviously historical references for vintage or modern 20mm watch band pieces are welcome. A Tropic or Isofrane watch bands for a diver's watch, a beautiful riveted watch bands for a pilot's chronograph or a One-piece Nylon for any military 20mm watch band or diver's watch will always be in good taste, so it's hard to go wrong, as long as you stay in manufacturing quality.

Colours: Do I Have The Right To Want To Be Funny?

Here is a real  question that I have often been confronted with. Not personally of course, in view of my monk's austerity regarding the choice of colors, but for friends who came to seek 22mm watch band advice.

"If You're Not A Professional Clown, Paid To Make People Laugh, My Answer Is No." 

Of course, I'm not dictating trends, but let me explain. True luxury, true elegance will always reside in simplicity. By wanting to do too much 22mm watch band, we lose ourselves. Wearing your watch on fluorescent yellow and pink watch bands bracelet with 34 small watch bands bracelets of pearls, colored threads and 22mm watch band precious metals will never do much good. Neither to your watch, nor to your style more generally.

It's just not necessary. And don't be mistaken, I like to make smiles and Seiko watch bands with conspiratorial and mischievous looks in the eyes of my comrades and friends. Simply, in this perspective, I advise you rather to highlight your Seiko watch bands personality and sharpen your sense of humor, you will get tired of it much less quickly. The others too.

Our Opinion

A matter of tastes and Apple watch 44mm watch band styles, most certainly, as well as very subjective perceptions. That said, if I may say so, the notions of harmony, proportions, consistency and respect for cases should ideally remain at the center of Strapcode concerns. Then again, the Apple watch 44mm watch band is a matter of taste.

After all, if some people in Pennsylvania like their decaffeinated coffee with cream of soy milk, lots of sugar, maple syrup, chocolate and vanilla extracts, that's up to them... Nevertheless, I can't stop advising the Apple watch 44mm watch band to learn to appreciate the aromas of the bean and the flavors of good, freshly brewed black coffee.
