Our love affair with wristwatches has evolved over time. More than just a tool to tell the time, they are worn to reflect our personality, our sense of style and even our social status. But with the advent of the smartwatch, wristwatches have become homogenized into standardized, utilitarian devices. At one time, selecting a wristwatch involved a number of decisions including brand, material, style, strap, style, and price. But if you’re looking for a smartwatch, your phone’s brand basically dictates what you’re going to buy. For those attached to the Apple ecosystem, the Apple Watch is the only option.
So how do you stand out and make a style statement when you’re wearing a watch that looks exactly like everyone else’s? Meet Chalonnethe standout brand, luxury Apple Watch bands for women since 2019. They incorporate luxury materials like solid 14k gold, diamonds, gemstones, pony hair, and even shearling that are meant to sweeten and personalize technology.
The goal of each band, Carlye continues, is to give the wearer a sense of confidence and style. “Whether you’re dressing up for a cocktail party or hanging out in jeans and a t-shirt, Chalonne stripes can be the finishing touch to your look.”
As the popularity of Apple Watches grew, Carlye identified a need for fashionable and luxurious watch straps for women. “When I bought my first Apple Watch, I loved the technology, but I didn’t like the silicone strap that came with it,” Carlye says. “I did some research and couldn’t find any high-quality Apple Watch bands. I didn’t want to sacrifice my personal style to sport the latest technology, and I knew other women must feel the same way. I wanted to start my own business for a while and had so many design ideas that I decided to jump in. Chalonne’s goal is to create elegant and luxurious Apple Watch straps with a focus on original design, highest quality materials and expert craftsmanship “We want to offer our customers a premium option that can be easily changed daily to suit the occasion and your personal style.”
Apple Watch bands with style
Carlye explains that Chalonne’s The collection of luxurious Apple Watch straps offers an elegant way to express individuality and style in everyday life. “One thing that makes us unique is the attention we give to the creative process,” she says. “All of our bands are designed in Bel-Air, California, and meticulously crafted by artisans in France.” Once a design is ready, a dedicated team of skilled artisans get to work, handcrafting each band. “It’s my favorite part of the process: watching my designs become a reality and also knowing the attention to detail and care that went into creating each band.”
Carlye says it was important to make sure the jewelry would stand up to everyday use. “No matter how beautiful a watch strap is, it should be functional, so we’ve done extensive research to develop technology to lock the jewelry inside the strap lining, which provides stability while maintaining suppleness and comfort.” Chalonne creations are crafted with the finest materials possible, including responsibly sourced diamonds, solid 14k gold and leather rich in European details.
