Watch Band is a generic term which describes a band which holds the wristwatch in place. Apart from this term there are two similar terms in use - Watch Strap and Bracelet. Watch Strap is commonly associated with a piece of leather, cloth, rubber or non-metal material which is attached to the watch while a bracelet consists of metal links which together build a watch band.
A classic watch strap has two pieces which are fitted to a watch by spring bars or pins. Spring bars or pins are small tubes with a small spring and heads inside. The spring causes tension what forces the heads to move outside of the tube. The ends of these heads are thicker than the opposite ends what stops them from going totally outside of the tube. Thanks to this solution the spring bars can be put into the watch band holes which are found at the end of both pieces and then mounted onto the watch. This feature enables secure and movable connection between a watch and a watch band.
As mentioned before a classic watch band consists of two pieces and one of them is shorter than the other. The shorter piece is fitted with the tang buckle (usually, however it can be fitted with clasp too) which in mounted by a spring bar. The longer piece is usually a simple piece - sometimes called a tail - with holes in its surface in small increments. Then the tail (longer piece) is threaded through the buckle and the pin is pushed through the corresponding hole for a good fit.
