How to personalize a watch?
Why personalize your watch?
You may want to personalize your watch for various reasons:
search for the single object
Compatibility with our dress style
Simple matter of taste
Longing for something new
Whatever the reason, know that there are many possibilities for customizing a watch. Personalization occurs as soon as you buy the watch, but you can also personalize a watch you already have by replacing certain components, especially the strap. A simple change of strap is sometimes enough to give a new look to a watch and restore its interest.
Items to customize on a watch
Ddecomposition of a watch
Before discussing the customizable elements, let's go back to the different parts of a watch:
The case: main element that includes the dial, the crown, the movement, the glass, the back and the lugs.
The bracelet: attached to the case, it allows the watch to be hung around the wrist
The clasp: used to close the bracelet, it generally consists of a pin buckle
Regarding the case, the back is generally the only part that can be personalized. The idea is to change the background image of the watch. However, this type of customization is only suitable for certain entry-level watch models and the effect can be quite kitsch. Indeed, it is inconceivable to change the back of a luxury watch, since it is an integral part of its personality.
You can also personalize your watch by replacing the clasp. Note that there are different types of clasps:
Simple folding clasp
Folding buckle with safety
However, the type of clasp mainly depends on the bracelet, as it is not always possible to change the clasp without having to completely change the bracelet. As such, the bracelet is the element that makes it possible to easily and efficiently personalize a watch by playing on its characteristics: material, color, finishes, etc.
ems used to personalize a watch
When buying a watch, the main selection criteria are the style of the case, the brand, the model, and the price.
Then to personalize your watch you will especially be able to play with the material of the bracelet. The MisterChrono site gives you access to a wide choice of leathers, from the most exotic (alligator, ostrich, etc.) to the most classic (calfskin, etc.). Rubber, fabric and steel bracelets are also available.
Regarding the material of the clasp, the choice is between a plastic model or a metal model.
You can also personalize your watch by opting for a strap in another color. The most common colors are black and shades of brown, but all colors are possible. There are even transparent bracelets. Note that you can play on the contrasts by choosing a clasp of a different color.
In addition to color, patterns and finishes (stitching, reliefs, etc.) add other touches of visual personalization to a watch strap.
Similarly, you can also play on the dimensions of the bracelet and more precisely on its width. However, make sure the strap is compatible with the lugs on the watch case.
