Let’s admit that the watch design and materials are the first thing that catch the attention when looking at something.
Before sharing a list of the best-selling watches with a mesh band from the August Berg collection, it is essential to understand what exactly a mesh strap is and what are the benefits of donning one.
What is a Milanese mesh watch strap?
As the name suggests, the mesh watch strap is made from metal wires, specifically stainless steel, worked into characteristics of a mesh look. This type of bracelet originated from the Italian town Milan back in the 13th century which gave birth to the name “Milanese watch bands,” however, it was only in the 19th century that the Milanese mesh design was used as watch bracelets. The unique mesh design gives the bracelet a distinctive look to any watch it is combined with. Milanese mesh watch straps are a genuine classic and have remained popular throughout the years, on both vintage and modern timepieces.
Are mesh bracelet watches good?
A Milanese watch band gives the watch either a robust or sophisticated appeal, depending on the type of mesh used. It is considered sturdier than standard watch straps since it has no pins between its links and intertwines loops. Today, most mesh straps have small links designed to be dense and tight, which makes them smooth to the wrist with great breathability due to the space in its loops. As such, in terms of durability, the mesh band is built to withstand a lot of wear and tear. When it comes to design, they are known as real chameleons with their capability to complement any look and style.
So, are watches with mesh bracelets good? The answer is YES. However, it all goes back to each individual’s preference and taste. To help you decide, here’s a rundown of the highly recommended timepieces with mesh straps.
