About Stainless Steel Watches
Over the past 40 years, stainless steel watches have become increasingly desirable due to a combination of strong aesthetics, robustness, advancements in technology and cost-effectiveness. Steel watches, especially when they’re paired with a full steel bracelet, are innately attractive. This has resulted in stainless steel models from all of the world’s leading watchmakers becoming the standard look of the modern watch.
Before the 1970s, stainless steel did not enjoy the same favourable stance in the world of horology. It wasn’t until the second half of the 20th century that the metal began to take hold. Before then, technology had not reached a point where working with stainless steel, particularly in making the precise components of a timepiece, was economically feasible. Watches tended to be crafted from gold and accompanied by leather straps. The 1970s brought about the first fully stainless steel models from some of the world’s leading watch manufacturers, which introduced a look that appeared alien at the time. Today, the stainless steel case and bracelet combination has become the icon of the modern wristwatch for both men and women.
Aside from familiarity, the metal itself boasts various attributes that make it ideal for a timepiece. Stainless steel is so named due to its non-rust characteristics, a highly important feature. High-performing wristwatches are designed to be worn in a variety of weather conditions and are frequently exposed to the elements, making stainless steel the perfect material for cases and bracelets. Stainless steel is an incredibly strong metal and as new methods for shaping and milling the metal appeared, stainless steel has emerged as the perfect material for building strong, robust and high-performing timepieces.
The last and perhaps most obvious quality of stainless steel is its price. Steel watches tend to form the foundation of luxury watch brand collections, with prices climbing as the same model is offered in more premium materials. In many cases, stainless steel watches are considered introductory offerings.
