It is no good having a quality built watch case sitting on a cheap and poorly made watch strap. Your watch is your investment, it speaks volume about yourself, but not everyone can invest in an expensive strap for their timepiece.
Finding the best cheap watch straps can be tricky, with a whole tirade of NATO, leather and rubber straps surfing the internet. But there are quality built straps by reputable brands online, and you shouldn’t shy away from saving a bit of money if you can still get the quality.
Every individual has their own favourite type of strap, so let’s narrow down to the best for each style.
If you’re the fan of a classic leather strap, then the Berfine Calf Leather is an affordable option that fits the majority of watch sizes ranging from 18mm to 22mm. Made of extra soft genuine leather and heavy stainless steel buckle, this watch strap is soft, flexible and comfortable. It won’t cost you an arm or a leg either (or even a wrist). If dark brown leather isn’t your style then you can grab it in black or brown.
With a total of 18 different colour options at an affordable price, these Autulet NATO straps allow you to customize your wrist piece at an affordable price. The silver flat buckle with four rings allows for easy adjustment on the wrist, whilst the quality of nylon used in the band is stylish, sporty and of high quality.
