Watch band advice from the Experts

What should you look for in a watch band?

The watch band you choose is a very individual decision, but we are here to help guide you in what is best suited to you and your lifestyle. For example, if you lead an active and busy lifestyle, a thicker and sturdier watch strap may be better suited to you. The most important aspect to look for in a watch band is quality, and at JJ Browns we only stock the highest quality watch straps.


What different types of watch straps are available?

At JJ Browns we stock Hirsch watch bands and Duraflex watch bands, as we believe these brands are the best on the market. The type of watch straps available include:

-       Titanium

-       Stainless steel

-       Leather

-       Polyurethane rubber

-       Silicon

-       Nylon

-       Caoutchouc

These materials have a huge range of colours, styles and textures to choose from.


How long should a watch band last?

The lifespan of a watch band is dependent on how often you wear it, what material it is made from, and how well you look after it. Leather bands need to be taken care of, some require waterproofing, and should avoid contact with water to extend their life. Even so, if you are wearing it everyday, it probably won’t last more than a few years. Less regular wear however, when it is taken care of, can last more than five years. Stainless steel and titanium watch straps, if taken care of, may never need replacing. Synthetic and rubber watch bands can last a long time, given that they are of high quality. Poor quality rubber bands are known to have quite a short life span.
