Ben Sherman Leather Strap Watch combines best of both worlds

ben sherman leather strap watch combines best of both worlds

If you think about it, your choice of watch generally says a lot about your personal style. Whether you go for a traditional timepiece or a sleek digital one, it’s a tough choice. Fitting your personal sense of style into one of two categories doesn’t leave much room for self-expression, with either a classic leather-strapped analog watch or a metal and plastic science-nerd design. Designer Ben Sherman has attempted to create a hybrid of the two opposing watch personalities, and the result is a timepiece that has elements of both cutting-edge design and traditional masculinity. The Leather Strap Watch ($72) has a steel base for the digital screen and a textured leather strap that will certainly wear better than plastic. The watch is water-resistant but not meant for swimming or diving, but you already knew that.
