Sporty Elegant Swiss Made Leather Watch Bands

Rubber B Leather Watch Bands

Rubber B Leather Watch Bands

Leather watch bands have been used with fine time pieces for over 100 years. In the late 1800’s and early 1900’s pocket watches were all the rage.  However, during the South African Freedom Wars and later during World War I, soldiers took to attaching their pocket watches to their wrist with a leather strap.  This started a trend of combining watch making with leather bands that has continued to today.

The leather strap evolved quickly into the standard as masculine watches were developed by Rolex, Panerai, Longines, IWC and others–many of them used in military to coordinate raids and attacks.  The military loved the strength, versatility, and natural waterproofness of leather watch bands.

Rubber B has advanced the development of the leather band, by bonding the leather to a rubber base.  The stitching is recessed within a trench and knotted invisibly in the rubber for maximum comfort.  The leather surfaces are innovatively recessed, allowing them to sit flush in the shapely rubber base.  This allows the wearer to become active in all kinds of sports, from diving and swimming, to tennis and golf.

The Vulcanized rubber base achieves both a comfortable and strong fit.  Since there are no blends, fillers, linings or coatings used in Rubber B manufacturing, the band does not bleed coloring when the wearer gets the surface wet. The band is even water proof to ocean salt water.  An owner of a Rolex Submariner, for example, can proudly wear his Rubber B during deep sea diving without fear of losing or hurting his investment.

Additionally, there are no pores or creases in the leather or rubber band, protecting the watch band from sweat and odor.  The watch band can be easily cleaned with water after physical activity.

The unique design of the Rubber B Swiss Made leather band allows the wearer to achieve both a sporty feel, while achieving an elegant look with genuine alligator or full-grain leather. This is the ultimate leather strap.  For a full description of Rubber B Swiss Made Leather Bracelets visit our products page here.
