Silverstone Driver Quick Release leather watch straps have perforated breathe holes which are inspired by racing gloves from the 1960’s. Then racing cars had no power steering so gloves were worn to reduce steering wheel slip and avoid hand blisters. Racing drivers hands got hot especially in the summer as the engine was just feet away. Perforated breath holes helped with this issue creating ventilation and allowing moisture to evaporate causing a cooling effect. This principle works for watch straps keeping the wrist cool and minimising perspiration.
Silverstone Driver Quick Release watch straps really are cool!
