That isn't to say this never happens, but it is mostly maintained to the likes of Swatch and other "play" or less than luxurious watches. A man is used to wearing a tie with interesting and creative designs, why not on a watch strap as well? I think that for the right type of people, art on a strap can be a fantastic new way to not only express themselves, but surround themselves with beautiful things.
So you can imagine how delighted I was to see already creative watch maker Alain Silberstein showing off some new types of straps on his iKrono watches. While I might not like all the strap designs per se, I do like the concept a lot. The range of materials and designs is almost limitless. The large iKrono watch has a large strap with lots space on it. It make sense to decorate it. This applies for almost all watches and watch straps out there. I feel that moving forward in the future a watch strap is going to more and more be seen as a valuable way to personalize a timepiece, and make a beloved watch fresh with a new look. The new tie is gonna be the watch strap!
