If you own an Apple watch, then chances are it has become the one (and probably only) accessory you wear all the time—regardless of the time of day, place, or occasion. That means the watch has to effortlessly complement a wide range of outfits without looking out of place. Basically, it has to look formal when you look formal and informal when you’re donning a more casual ensemble. That’s why choosing the right strap is so important—it should fit your lifestyle just as perfectly as it should fit your wrist.

Enter the Louis Vuitton Tambour Canvas Damier Azur strap, which checks both those boxes. 

While this watchband is technically for men, it has a chic unisex look that would look just as elegant on a woman’s wrist as it does on a man’s. And speaking of its look, it’s actually crafted from the iconic Damier canvas, which is one of Louis Vuitton’s oldest pattern designs, created all the way back in 1888.

In this case, the style has been given a modern update and comes in a beautiful champagne color with the company’s name tastefully printed on both straps and the buckle. The fabric is actually coated cotton canvas, which makes the strap not only more durable but it is also completely water-resistant just like your Apple watch. So if you are hitting the gym for an intense workout or are washing your hands, for example, you don’t have to worry about sweat or water ruining the texture or the color of the strap. It also sports two leather loops, leather lining, and a stainless steel ardillon buckle for a secure fit. And, of course, just like every Louis Vuitton accessory, this one also was made in France meeting the company’s rigorous quality standards.
