As the weather finally starts to warm up and we’re shedding our parkas and boots, it’s time to start thinking about our summer wrist game. Below are some strap options to help upgrade your watch for the warmer weather.
Braided Perlon Strap
These single threaded braided nylon straps, also referred to as Perlon, harken back to vibes of the60s and 70s. They are lightweight, come in almost every color and ring in under $10. Perfect for your late night patio sessions.

NATO Style Strap
As mentioned in the Perfect Weekend Watch article, we’re big fans of NATO style straps. They are the quintessential casual strap and with various color options as well as hardware styles (stainless, brushed, blacked out PVD, and gold) they are the seamless transition for your watch to the warmer months and are great for those long days at the beach. And how could you go wrong with the black and grey “Bond” style strap worn by 007 himself? These range in prices from around $10-15.

For those adventurous types, you can never go wrong with a rubber watch strap. The great companion for divers or lounging by the pool. These are a little more pricy ($225) in relation to the Perlon and NATO style straps, but are worth every penny. The ones featured are made specifically for Rolex watches by Everest Bands and come in 5 different colours to match your style and watch.
