Cognac-Colored Straps Return to Fashion
by Roberta Naas
Be it cognac, chocolate or coffee, stars of sport and screen are donning horology’s latest trend. The Miami Heat’s Dwyane Wade is a big fan of Audemars Piguet and recenlty strapped on the brand's cognac-strapped Royal Oak Offshore Montauk Highway watch ($22,600) while party hopping in the Hamptons. And Twilight’s Kellan Lutz sported TAG Heuer’s Grand Carrera chronometer watch ($3,700) with a brown dial and alligator strap at the TAG’s 150th anniversary Odyssey of Pioneers event in Malibu. Inspired by TAG’s motor-racing history, the Grand Carrera collection pays homage to the car’s original 1964 design.
