Is an outfit really complete without a stylish watch?
Whether you’re accessorizing with a casual outfit or a bespoke suit, we can’t overstate the importance of a stylish watch. It doesn’t have to be expensive, either—there are plenty of budget-friendly watch options available to you that will have you looking your best!
The question is: What type of watch is best?
Every watch has its place, whether we’re talking about a metal watch, fabric watch, or a leather band watch.
However, we’re here with five of our favorite men’s leather watches that we know you’ll love.
Before we dive in, let’s talk about what makes a leather watch special.
Why Wear a Leather Watch?
With so many different types of watch bands to choose from, what is it that makes leather watches such an attractive option for stylish men?
We’ve come up with five reasons why we love leather watches. Not to say that other types of watch bands aren’t as good, but all of these factors can help sway you toward choosing leather for your next timepiece.
Watches are an investment—even if you choose a budget option, you’ll want your watch to last!
Leather is renowned for being one of the most durable materials for clothing, accessories, and footwear. A quality leather watch band should give you several years of wear as long as you treat it right. The shade or color may start to change a little bit, but the overall quality of the leather takes a long time to wear down.
You’ll certainly be getting what you pay for!
One of our favorite things about men’s leather watches is their versatility.
Dressing up in a classy bespoke suit? Throw on a leather watch. It won’t bog down the outfit and will add some subtle flair to piece the whole look together.
Heading out in a t-shirt and shorts? Take your casual look to the next level with a stylish leather watch. You’ll certainly get some looks—but in a good way!
The sheer amount of leather straps on the market add to their versatility, too. You’ve got different colors, from natural browns to navy blues. Meanwhile, different patterns and textures can add to your look as well—for example, Croco Grain leather has an intriguing and unique texture to it.
If you’re looking for versatility in a watch, it’s hard to beat men’s leather watches.
Leather is well-known for being one of the most comfortable materials for watch bands. It’s supple and will move freely with your wrist rather than remaining rigid.
It also tends to absorb sweat and humidity. Your wrist won’t feel as hot under a leather strap—especially when compared to other fabric straps.
While you can certainly get used to having a metal band on your wrist, nothing beats the comfort provided by a leather watch.
This one might be a little subjective, but can you beat the class provided by a leather strap? It’s definitely tough!
One thing we can say for certain is that one of the best features of leather straps is their simplicity—the right men’s leather watch won’t come and go with the changing trends. Sporting a classy leather watch with a suit or a casual outfit will always be fashionable.
You can certainly find men’s leather watches beyond your price range. However, for the most part, they tend to be one of the more budget-friendly options—especially when compared to metal bands.
Also, as one of the more durable materials, you’ll spend less money replacing your watch band. Compare this to a metal watch that may require additional cash for replacing links.
There’s nothing better than looking stylish on a budget, and men’s leather watches give you that opportunity.
