This collection of Rios1931 watch straps is really rather interesting. They're designed to look like either calfskin or alligator watch straps but they differ to your standard strap.

We have styled the straps on the Seiko SPB077J1 which wears all of the straps really well. Once fitted, the straps are more supple than you would expect from a rubberlike material and are comfortable enough from the get go.

This water resistant treatment that the straps have undergone make them a good all rounder. Wear them in the pool or at work and they will look and perform just as well regardless. We are particularly fond of the Alligator embossed watch straps that give the impression of a luxe watch strap but at a much more accessible price point.

Currently only available in black with either tonal or contrasting stitching but there is potential for other colours in the future. All of the straps come equipped with a standard Rios1931 buckle in a choice of finish.

All four of the watch straps seen in this post can be found in the full Rios1931 watch strap collection or in our Watcerproof watch strap collection.
