sticking to classic trends, ever covair watch is completely interchangeable with others in their line. users can easily rotate in and out different colors and styles, by simply locking the faces into the base using a combination of strong magnets and o-ring clasps. the company spent countless hours testing the position of the magnet to make sure they don’t effect the time or movement in any way. just like the watch faces, they made straps with quick change clips, where you can go from a leather band to a stainless steel bracelet in a few quick seconds.
