It is the straps which really is the stand out feature of these watches from James Lucy on Indiegogo and they take just a few seconds to interchange with one another.

It’s hard not to be won over by the ethos of James Lucy Watches which consists of a proportion of their profits being donated to charities each year and, as a social enterprise, they will rely on their customers to choose the charities to benefit. This isn’t something that you see often within the world of watchmaking and it’s certainly something that should be applauded in our opinion here at The Coolector.
With prices starting at a mere £59, these represent excellent value for money and the fact that profits are going to charity is something that will heighten their appeal still further. Whether it’s the understated leather straps or the more vibrant Gaucho ones that are more your bag, you’re sure to find a timepiece that matches your style preferences with the James Lucy Watches over on Indiegogo.
