Jean Rousseau to Showcase New Watch Straps at WatchTime New York 2016
America’s largest luxury watch show, WatchTime New York, returns to Manhattan’s Gotham Hall on October 14-15 (Click here for event details and to purchase tickets). For the second year in a row, luxury custom-watch-strap purveyor Jean Rousseau will be among the exhibitors, and will be displaying a range of new styles in its collection, from water-resistant leather to carbon fiber and kevlar blends.
Gold and platinum hand-stitching: Jean Rousseau’s artisans are able to hand-stitch its alligator leather straps with threads made from precious metals, adding another level of subtle luxury to a timepiece. The company offers stitching in platinum — the purest and rarest precious metal, which also has hypoallergenic properties — as well as in 18k rose gold or yellow gold.
