Ribbon Strapped Watches Are All the Craze

As we get more and more immersed in the sleek, futuristic world of technology, time has had no choice but to keep up. But in response to a surge of increasingly complex wrist devices, some time tinkerers are looking back rather than forward. Behold the ribbon watch, a decidedly unfussy, even playful incarnation of the modern man's signature chronometer. With designers swapping standard leather and metal straps for woven nylon and canvas, a serious accessory has gotten a relaxed face-lift. In an age so obsessed with progress, a moment of youthful nostalgia can be a refreshing change of pace.
