When it comes to women’s watches, straps aren’t usually top of a designer’s list of priorities. But despite all the attention the dial tends to get, it’s the strap that covers the larger proportion of your wrist. Thankfully, there are brands out there that do spend time on these means of attachment. Hermès is famously obsessive about its straps – its workshop in Switzerland demands “métier” status and its products are made with the same level of care and precision as any handbag bearing the Hermès stamp (in fact, you can even commission a strap to match your bag should you have the money or inclination). Dior is another notable exception – a couple of years ago it launched the Grand Soir with a strap made using haute couture techniques that even came with a hand-stitched couture label.
