Jean Rousseau has been producing high quality French leather goods and watch straps for over 65 years, giving them a long history of excellence and style. However, tradition doesn’t preclude innovation and they have always kept up with modern trends and styles and in this technological age that means creating straps for smart watches. More specifically, Apple Watches and the new Series 7, so here’s a look at 6 of the best straps for your Series 7.
Classic Ostrich Orange, £135
Orange is a classic colour for Apple products, back when the iMac G3 was the height of technology its translucent orange case was revolutionary. So, Jean Rousseau’s bright orange strap in ostrich leather is the perfect colour to pair with their newest creation. Plus, the texture is incredibly unique, meaning it will stand out in more ways than one.
Classic Calf Kaki, £100
An equally reasonable approach is to make your smart watch feel as much like a regular watch as possible with a classy calf leather number in dark tan. It’s very subtle and doesn’t draw as much attention to your wrist, perfect for making use of the Series 7’s increased utility without having to explain that yes you have the new Series 7.
Classic Embossed Calf Green, £100
Green has been the dominant colour in watchmaking throughout 2021 and you don’t have to miss out on it with your Apple Watch. The Embossed Calf strap in green is a beautiful shade of forest green that sits between the brilliance of emerald and the drabness of olive. A great way to instil a verdant flair in your watch.
Alligator Camouflage Green, £230
One of the major benefits of Apple Watches is that they are incredibly versatile, meaning you can be more expressive with your strap choice and go for more distinctive patterns such as camouflage. This alligator leather strap consists of shades of green and tan, with the outline of each colour broken up further by the texture of the leather.
Classic Ostrich Blue, £135
We couldn’t resist including a second Ostrich leather strap because exotic materials are a signature of Jean Rousseau, of which ostrich is the most intriguing. Similar to the orange version, the blue one is bright and bold, however the aquatic tones are more in keeping with traditional strap colouration, making it mildly less extravagant but more classical.
Double Wrap Python Sand, £240
Jean Rousseau produces two different styles of Apple Watch Strap, the classic single wrap and a double wrap. As its name suggests, the double wrap loops around your wrist twice before you buckle it, provide more surface area for exquisite design. Somewhat thematically, it’s available in stunning python leather in sand tones – thematic because, well, snakes are long and thin just like the double wrap.
