While watches with colorful leather and rubber straps offer women a fun—and functional—way to accessorize, metal bracelets have returned to the scene, offering watch collectors an alluring alternative to their tried-and-true summer timepiece. In fact, many watch brands offer two-tone bracelets in supple links or in rigid styles that call to mind a sculptural cuff, making these watches as much a piece of fine jewelry as a well-crafted timepiece.
