Strap, as an important part of the watch, is the watch fixed wrist part collectively. Strap as a direct contact with the human body part is to determine whether the standard comfort of the cheap replica watches, the comfort is largely determined by the material of the strap. Strap material a lot, if there are dozens of subdivision in terms of breakdown. Today we do not repeat them, and to simply talk about the four types of strap, what kind of advantages and disadvantages are.

Metal strap


Metal strap is divided into precious metal materials and other metal materials, common for the straps of precious metal materials are mostly platinum, k gold. While the other metal material strap, and steel material, titanium mostly. Want to say the advantages of metal straps, and some people may say that metal strap easy to filth, wearing heavy, where there are advantages. Then we first said that the metal strap where the shortcomings.
A fear of sweating, two fear of shock, three fear of color. Strap as part of the direct contact with the skin, due to the use of time, the use of habits and the environment, more or less will produce dirt, metal strap in contact with sweat is not timely treatment of the case, easy to accumulate and then lead to wear and corrosion, This situation is easy to dirty clothes and even make the wearer skin allergies. In addition to the need to promptly clean sweat, precious metals such as k gold material, because the material itself is softer, for the impact of accidental touch less bear, easy in daily life on the surface of the strap scratches. Then, with the wear time, and wear and contact with the body sweat, easy to make metal discoloration.


Said so many shortcomings, let me refute some of the metal strap. Metal straps have so many shortcomings, why there are so many consumers like metal straps willing to buy it. durable! Yes, because it is durable, metal straps, although afraid of oxidation is also easy because of the use of improper care and scratches. But relative to the cortex, rubber and nylon strap, it will be longer life, and after a simple treatment, you can restore the glory as new.

The biggest advantage of the leather strap is skin care. That is, from the comfort of wearing, the leather strap is more comfortable, especially in the cold autumn and winter season to wear more feel warm and comfortable. Compared to other materials strap, leather strap is more difficult to hurt the skin and clothing. In addition to the material itself, leather strap to bring people the feeling is elegant, restrained, in daily life, more suitable for business occasions to wear, giving a more formal feeling.

But the cortex has one of the biggest drawbacks, that is easy to wear, aging fracture. Summer high temperature wear easy to sweat. Because the cortex is generally airtight reasons, as well as the reasons for the production of leather straps, wearing a day in the hot summer days, wrist wearing a watch that circle may bite out a circle of sweat. There is also a reason can not be ignored, nausea after the cortex strap will produce a smell, which requires the usual wear of leather straps need to regularly wipe with a damp wet cloth carefully. So as to avoid odor.
Rubber strap


Rubber straps are generally used in sports replica watches, because the rubber material has a merit can not be ignored, the flexibility of the rubber is particularly good, popular said is “carry made.” In addition, the dynamic fashion rubber strap is also why many people choose it. More and more senior watch preference rubber material strap, which is also no lack of Audemars Piguet, Richard Mill these high-end brands.

Rubber belt so well, it has any shortcomings? Rubber straps can not ignore the disadvantages, such as winter easy to make hard, different rubber quality difference, easy to be cheap. Relative to the metal strap and leather strap, the rubber material is still not recognized for the elderly group, in the texture, the metal strap and leather strap can bring the quality of the highlights, but also the rubber strap can not match.
Nylon strap


Speaking of nylon watch many people immediately appeared in a mind on a brand, DW. DW with simple large dial design with variable nylon strap quickly occupied the young market. But in addition to DW, the other watch brands also like nylon strap. Especially in the summer, many brands will launch NATO strap series. NATO strap is actually the British military in the last century 70’s design of military strap. Its advantage is simple and practical, cheap and easy to produce. And this material is a good sense of wearing, breathable and comfortable. The design also has a lot of tricks, all kinds of patterns, the choice of space is also great.

Nylon strap is the lack of, is not suitable for formal occasions to wear; material easily spinning, fluff. In addition, many people also think that nylon strap with the same rubber belt, that the nylon strap as a metal strap and leather strap high-end, it is relatively cheap. In fact, the production of nylon strap is because of the lower cost and simple and practical, compared to its advantages, I personally think that nylon material is not high-end can not become its shortcomings or deficiencies.
Summary: strap as a consumable, no matter what it is material, it is difficult in the daily use of the time to ensure that it will not be damaged. Today, replica watches the home for everyone to count the four types of strap advantages and disadvantages, we can choose according to their own needs strap material.
