Change It Up: Haute Watches With Interchangeable Straps

It is always nice to allow a little versatility in life, especially when on vacation.

By Roberta Naas |  March 8 2021


It is always nice to allow a little versatility in life, especially when on vacation. That’s why certain top watch brands have created easy, tool-free, interchangeable band systems. During the day, don a colorful strap that easily switches to a bracelet at night, or a rubber option when poolside.

Hublot Big Bang One Click

These Hublot Big Bang One Click watches (pictured above), named for the interchangeable system that simply clicks a new strap into place, boast embroidered leather straps made at the Bischoff workshops in St Gallen, Switzerland, using a tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages. Each strap is designed according to a complex pattern; then, a technical designer determines how to program the embroidery machine. Additional straps can be purchased separately for $685 each. The steel and diamond Big Bang One Click retails for $14,600, and the King Gold with pavé diamonds on bezel, case and lugs retails for $32,500.
