Watch Bracelets

There are many different types of bracelets for watches. Here we try to outline the basic versions, terminology and use.

Watch Bracelet Types


Mesh bands are watch bracelets made from metal wires (usually stainless steel but can be gold or sliver) worked into characteristic mesh look that can give either robust or sophisticated look to watches, depending on their style. They are woven on a machine just like cotton.

  • Milanese Mesh with slide lock length adjustment details. A fine thinner bracelet that would be seen on a more dress style watch
  • Shark Mesh, a more robust watch strap, firstly seen on Omega Seamaster Plofproof 600 m in 1970s and advertised as impervious to shark bites, which gave it its name.
