Best Watch Straps for a Sweat-Free Summer

Post by DBCooper » Wed Jul 01, 2015 10:44 am

When it's 90 degrees outside, wearing a padded crocodile watch strap is no less insane than putting on a parka. Yeah, yeah, you're man enough to handle having a sweaty wrist. But what about when that $600 piece of hide starts harboring major funk? Didn't think so. (And your main BBQ mate agrees.) Plus, don't even think about jumping in the pool with a leather strap, unless you're ready to throw it out as you towel off.

Instead, swap in one of these four summer-ready materials and start enjoying casual weekends with breezy ease.

Excellent article, and I like the author's sense of humor, as well. I have one of my vintage mechanicals (an old Enicar) on perlon, and the article has it absolutely right; it somehow keeps everything cool and comfortable throughout the day, and when you unstrap it, the doggone thing is as dry as the Mojave at noon. Good stuff, Sam; thanks! 8)
