Racing watch strap
The “Rally” or “Racing” strap is essentially made of leather, perforated all along its length. The origin of the strap in question dates back to the 1970’s. The puncture pattern was directly inspired by the perforations present in certain parts of racing cars as a way to reduce weight. Another inspiration is the tiny perforations of race car seats or racing driver’s gloves, which we can’t get enough of.

Watches are not only functional timepieces but also fashion accessories that can be customized and personalized to match one’s style and personality. A watch strap is a vital element of a watch, and its choice can significantly impact the overall aesthetic and comfort of the timepiece. Among the various watch straps available, the rally watch strap is a popular choice that has stood the test of time.
The rally watch strap has its roots in the world of motorsports, where racers needed a strap that was both comfortable and durable enough to withstand the rigors of the race track. Its distinctive perforations were designed to provide ventilation and prevent sweat buildup, allowing the racer to focus on the road ahead. In addition, the wider lugs of the strap provided extra support to keep the watch secure on the wrist during high-speed driving.
Over time, the rally watch strap became a fashion statement in its own right, worn not only by racers but also by watch enthusiasts and collectors. The strap’s distinctive design, with its perforations and tapered shape, has become an iconic symbol of the golden age of motorsports and the timeless elegance of mid-century design.
