Rubber band wristwatches for men have, for many years now attracted many watch lovers. While materials for watchmaking are many out there, rubber, leather, and metals have received priority among watchmakers. Rubber seems to fit everyone, and its popularity is with no doubt. Among the best watches for sale in the Megalith men watches collection, you cannot miss out the rubber band wristwatches.
If you have previously owned a watch with a rubber band strap or case, you will all agree with me that their uniqueness is top-notch. These are timepieces that complement your style and showcases your personality in a positive approach. However, all this depends on the decision you make because there are multiple types out there.
History of Rubber Band Wristwatches
Research reveals that the first time watchmakers used rubber was in the 1960s. During that time, the Swiss companies were on the verge of exploiting several materials that can fit in the various watches. Diving watches adopted them because of their capability to resist soaking in water compared to other bracelets. After that, rubber became a choice in many watchmaking companies.
Nowadays, any unique sports or dive watch manufacturer includes rubber in the high-end watches they manufacture. Although, in most cases rubber is used to make straps, there has been notable instances where watchmakers use it on the cases. Rubber is not just an ordinary material; it is all that you need to stand out.
Rubber Band Wristwatches Variation
You might have noticed that there are varying types of rubber. The main classification is natural and synthetic rubber. Traditionally, natural rubber straps performed well but not to excellent levels as majority expected. For that reason, much research has been done on the subject to exploit more on what rubber has to offer. As of now, it is evident that the performance of rubber is not all about the type, but the modifications made.
Synthetic rubbers continue to get preference because they involve chemicals that showcase particular characteristics that customers want to see in their watches. For instance, silicone and PVC rubber tend to be durable and diverse. PVC being thermoplastic and very durable, has been used in high end watches for many decades now.
8 Reasons why you need Rubber Band Wristwatches for Men
Whether it is your first time to buy a rubber band wristwatch or not, being confused is an obvious thing. Sometimes, it happens because you have scanty information on the benefits that come along. For better understanding, here are 8 reasons why you need rubber band wristwatches for men.
A watch with waterproof materials is worth buying. The waterproof ability should be both on the straps and the case region. In either way, rubber resists water. It is because of the rubber chemical composition. The polymers allow it not to take any water, even when submerged. If you planning to buy one, do not hesitate.
The benefit of being waterproof is that you’ll not have to worry about the lifespan of your watch. Everybody wants a watch that will serve for long. Rubber watches in our collection don’t absorb any water, and this ensures the value of your money.
The duration of a timepiece is dependent on the care and attention you give your watch. However, some materials are generally weak, and they do not last for long. That’s not the case with a rubber. It can resist external forces that result in damage, keeping it safe.
Note that failure to keep your watch safe is not a guarantee that it will last for long. Every watch is delicate, and caring is not an option. There are multiple ways to maintain a watch, and you need to consider them.
These watches easily resist the UVA radiation
Sun radiations affect your watches. You must be aware that some sunrays effect the human skin, but you’ve not yet concentrated on knowing the effect on your timepiece. The long wave Ultraviolet A (UVA) radiation destroys most watch straps completely.
Synthetic rubber has chemical elements that allow it to resist the dangerous sun rays. Even when out there and the sun rays are overwhelming, you don’t have to worry. These are ideal choices for those working in extreme environment.
If you’ve been a victim of an allergic reaction after wearing a watch, you’ll agree with me that it is a nasty affair. There has been instances where some people experience an allergic response on the skin surface when they wear a certain watch.
This happens because a particular material act as an allergen on your skin, and the mast cells reacts through inflammation. Experts say that such instances are due to poor quality materials, especially those that have not undergone testing and quality assurance. Rubber is non-allergenic and safe.
Cleaning rubber is easy
Among the watch maintenance practices is cleaning it once in a while. For fear of causing harm to your timepiece, some people prefer to seek attention of a watch technician to do the cleaning. In some cases, it is worth it. However, if you own a rubber watch, you can clean it yourself.
To clean the rubber band wristwatches, you need to use soapy water and scrub with a clean toothbrush. Do it gently to avoid causing more harm. The entire process is easy, and it will not take you long before the watch is clean and dry. Besides, you can choose to wipe with a moist cloth when the dirt is minimal.
Watch trends are changing first, and watch enthusiasts no longer like heavy watches. Both men and women will value watches that are lightweight. Nobody wants a timepiece that feels like a burden on their wrist. The overall weight of a watch is dependent on the size and materials used.
If a watch has rubber straps, it will be very light unlike the watch of the same size that contains both the stainless steel case and bracelet. In case you want a lightweight timepiece, then choose those with rubber, and you will love to wear your watch every day.
It feels good when you wear a wristwatch that fits your particular style. Your style defines who you are, and making the wrong choice of a watch will be a wrong move. The majority of the rubber wristwatches for men are stylish, and you’ll never go wrong with any of them.
With these timepieces, you don’t worry about what to match with because of the versatile nature. That’s an advantage, especially if you are that person who finds it hard to match your attire and jewelry with a watch.
