There are some people out there who feel that steel bracelets on luxury watches are mundane or boring. Those people have obviously never seen some of the stunning steel bracelets that are available on today's luxury watches.
Steel is strong and sturdy. It's durable and able to withstand wear and tear that leather straps could only dream of. It gives us the feeling of security that our watch won't slip off and be lost forever. Also, you might not think so, but steel bracelets also tend to be more comfortable than other bracelet materials, conforming better to the shape of our wrist.
But let's not forget that steel can also be incredibly beautiful. The right steel bracelet can really elevate the look of a luxury watch, making it look even more luxurious.
To prove that point, we've put together a list of luxury watches that we have in stock and ready to ship at WatchMaxx, each featuring a stunning steel bracelet that really brings out its character.
The Superocean Heritage II is a perfect example of how steel can give a watch an elegant and sophisticated look. This watch has a unidirectional steel bezel with a black ceramic top ring, lending it both sporty and luxurious appeal. The black dial is adorned with luminous hour and minute hands, as well as a date window at 6 o'clock.
The steel bracelet on this Superocean Heritage II is both unexpected and spectacular looking. The scaled links provide unparalleled motion so it conforms brilliantly to any wrist, and the aesthetics are oceanic in all the best ways.
If you're looking for a sturdy steel bracelet with a look that's all its own, then this is the watch for you.
With its iconic design, the Hamilton Ventura is a watch that's impossible to forget. The Ventura's most defining feature is its triangular shape, which gives it an edgy and modern look.
This Hamilton Ventura Quartz model features a black dial with sparkling gold tone hour and minute hands and a soundwave pattern across the middle. The Ventura's gold tone steel bracelet is extravagantly designed and elegant, with unique patterns overlaying the links near the lugs.
Because of its unique shape, the Hamilton Ventura makes a real statement on the wrist. It's the perfect watch for anyone who wants their timepiece to be both stylish and eye-catching.
Of course, maybe you want your steel bracelet to have a little more showmanship. In that case, Gucci has you covered with their G-Timeless King Snake, an almost too on-the-nose name for what is undoubtedly a stunning watch.
A dangerous looking red, white and black snake winds its way all around the bracelet and onto the dial, adding a bite to an otherwise minimalist aesthetic. The pattern on the dial also continues in the design of the links on the bracelet, giving the watch a uniform feel, and the pyramid studs for hour markers is chic and interesting.
This is a watch that's not afraid to show off its luxury fashion credentials, and we think that's just fine.
Both stylishly modern and unapologetically chic, this Link Quartz features a stainless steel bracelet unlike any we've seen. The contours of the links give it an almost Transformers-esque vibe, but not in a bad way.
The diamonds planted at the hour markers around the stunning grey mother of pearl dial are luxury at its core essence, and the date window at 3 o'clock is a nice touch. The bracelet itself is deceptively simple in design, but its construction and materials make it anything but.
This is a watch that's sure to turn heads, whether you're wearing it to the office or out on the town.
And then there's the Movado Bold. We all know by now that Movado doesn't like to do anything that's expected from luxury watch makers, and this Bold is no exception.
The two-tone color scheme is an extravagant dance between silver and gold tones, and the bracelet has a distinct geometry to its design that's both modern and timeless. The sunray dial is one of Movado's signature touches, and it adds a touch of levity to an otherwise austere design.
This is a watch that's unafraid to be different, and we think that's what makes it so special.
