Rancho Cucamonga, California (WiredPRNews.com) –
Roughly 300 years ago, the watchband flashed upon the world as an intricate piece of jewelry for the most elite women of that society. In the past 10 years, watchbands have almost become obsolete. Who needs to tell time when you have a cell phone that does everything?
But, thanks to the new generation, the watchband is making a comeback. Accessories are hotter than ever. Rock the handbag with the shoes, or the earrings with the wristbands. The more you can accessorize, the more in style you are. Now, watchband designers are competing to have the utmost in fashionable designs.
Japanese fashion is influencing all aspects of fashion these days. Anime plays a huge role in giving birth to Gothic Lolita. Bright, vibrant colors with a touch of black, inspire the trend today. Many styles like thick colored bangle watchbands are very popular. The bigger the better and let’s not forget the polka dots. Styles can also be seen in the “tweens” generation to early teens.
One of the biggest and most reputable companies like DeBeer of Paris, offers custom watchbands made of the finest leathers in the world. Debeer has been around for over a quarter of the century and is a great inspiration to the watchband era. They display the most elegant looks of watchbands. Their fine Italian leathers are unmistakable in alligator, crocodile, ostrich, lizard, and snake. They have even experimented with sting ray. If you seek something a little more rugged, try the Swiss Army watchband made of leather and nylon.
DeBeer only uses the best materials when crafting their watchbands. No nickel will be found in their buckles. The company boasts that their product is hand made. Sure they could easily switch to a mass producing huge machine, but they have prided themselves in their quality over the years. It is what keeps them floating in the waters higher than their competition. Though they are innovative, their watchbands are timeless. They will still grace the models on the runway centuries to come.
