What is a Milanese Watch Band?

A Milanese watch bracelet is a luxurious metal mesh made from stainless steel for your hand. Mesh bands are usually made from stainless steel metal wires to give watches a sophisticated look. When it comes to durability, a mesh band can withstand a lot more than any other watch band. These bands are known for their durability, yet lightness and flexibility.

Originally, Milanese mesh originated from Italy in a town called Milan. Milan was famous for its unique mesh design, and it became the specialty of the region for many years. At the beginning of the 19th century, the Milanese mesh design was starting to be used in watch bracelets.
