Don't forget to include your watch in the spring clean checklist this year. With the strap covering up to 80% of the surface area of your time-piece, it is often underestimated the difference a new strap can make to the appearance.
HIRSCH - THE BRACELET SINCE 1765
Whether wanting to simply freshen up a tired looking watch or looking to change the colour scheme of your favourite accessory, here at The Watch Hospital we have a comprehensive selection to meet your needs.
Our premium offering in-store comes from Austrian based Hirsch bracelets, who have a long reputation for supplying the leading Swiss and German watch houses.
"Owners of precious and distinctive watches will want their watch bracelets to be just as unique and special. HIRSCH bracelets for watches are masterpieces of craftsmanship. Each one is made individually in many production steps to add a precious and unique character to the overall appearance of the watch. Every HIRSCH bracelet is the tangible expression of our claim to make the bracelet the most beautiful outfit any watch can appear in. Our family enterprise, that I have the honour of managing in the eighth generation, is dedicated to the most advanced, detailed and finest bracelets in the world." Explains Robert Hirsch, CEO.
If you’re in need of a little inspiration, we’ve picked 5 of our favourites from the current collection. However, we would always recommend visiting your nearest Watch Hospital and allow one of our technicians to guide you through our range.
Of course fitting is free of charge and (if the sizing is correct) we may be able to keep your original branded buckle if you so wish.
