Does the strap make the watch?

The strap in my opinion does not make the watch but it dresses it, we can see that a watch head will change with the type of strap with which you are going to match it, according to the material you are going to wear : leather, canvas, rubber, a Milanese mesh, or a multiple link bracelet, its colour or its cut.
The watch- head is indeed the major part, the technical part of the watch, the part that you will like and that you will want to own. If the watch is lucky, you will wear it every day, and it will certainly not mind if you "tune" it sometimes, according to your mood, your style of the day.
On the video, you can see an ELKA D02 with different straps, blue leather, cognac leather, grey-blue nylon or Milanese mesh, you choose how you would like to wear it...

I see a strap on a watch like wheels and tires on a car. The car itself is what you year for, but the wrong set of wheels and tires, those that don’t fill the wheel wells or don’t match the aesthetics, can take an otherwise beautiful work of art and make you go meh.

Well I'm strap obsessed and will spend far too much time messing with straps to get the right one for the right watch,in fact I spend as much time hunting for a strap as I do a watch. I know I've got a problem but that's a big part of the fun(to me anyway).

Hunting for great straps to buy is a much cheaper way to obsess over watches than hunting for new watches to buy.

Hi Cornfedksboy, you're right, the strap is 50% of the watch! It should fit the watchhead, but tastes are different for all human beings, and your taste can also change with your mood, this video was to demonstrate how the whole watch changes.

Hi Stricko, I could reply the same way as I did to Cornfedksboy!
