Some of the biggest news in women’s watches has more to do with the straps than the watch itself. Among the most popular recent trends are the sporty equestrian-style straps and hardware that take their cue from fine saddlery. Tan, finely stitched leather straps make abundant use of shiny hardware resembling that found in stirrups and reins. This timeless look is guaranteed to never go out of style. There is also the very chic look of extra-long watch straps that can be layered around the wrist, creating the appearance of layered leather bracelets. The elongated straps resemble an armful of bangles.

Speaking of which, seldom do you see a watch by itself anymore. Layering watches with bracelets is entirely in. Whether you are more traditional or a trendsetter, you will find a wide variety of watch bands to fit your personality. Leather watch bands bring a hint of sophistication to any wardrobe.
