Mate, a herbal drink made from the dried leaves of yerba mate, is the national drink of Uruguay. No matter where you go, you will see people strolling around with a thermos under one arm (for the hot water) and a mate cup in the other.
The mate is drunk through a special metal straw called a bombilla that filters the liquid as you drink it. The cup, also called a mate, is traditionally made from calabash gourd. Traditional mates are richly decorated and often trimmed with silver and other metals. It is this traditional art that inspires the design of the Mate Amargo Apple watch band in sterling silver.
The Mate Amargo is a narrow Apple watch band, overlaid with sterling silver and decorated with brass beads that are riveted to the band. The metals are left unsealed, so your watch band will evolve and change as you wear it, reflecting your location, your personal body chemistry, perhaps even your career. Truly a one-of-a-kind piece!
Isn’t it time you gave your Apple watch the band it deserves?
Like all the pieces in the WATCHCRAFT collection, WATCHCRAFT apple watch bands are handcrafted to order, sculpting sterling silver, solid copper and brass into a striking piece of wearable art.
Compatible with Apple Watch Series 1-8, SE and Ultra. The watch band can be adjusted to any length you like and is shipped with extra links.
