The Mesh straps are woven stainless steel with a mat brushed or shiny polished finish buckles. Not all combinations of size and buckle finish are available. The adjustment mechanism slides across the strap and the tail of the strap fits inside the other one to make a clear crisp finish. They are robust, but not as strong as the stainless steel bracelet watch straps, but for most jobs around the home they will be strong enough to cope.
The Retro watch is again a very distinctive watch. The strap housing part is part of the watch and follows the line of the casing. The strap also follows the contour of the circumference of the watch face; i.e. there is no gap between the strap and the watch.
