The Art of Simplicity

    Hermès, the French luxury-goods brand that began as a saddlemaker, has elevated the simplicity of a leather strap into an art form. Each strap is selected from a candy store of exceptional materials, including leather and crocodile, and then hand-stitched and finished for over an hour in the company’s workshop in Bienne, Switzerland. The process represents the highest level of time and expense in the industry and results in quality you can immediately feel on your wrist. (800.441.4488, www.hermes.com)
