Hirsch Performance Collection wins design award


Watch strap manufacturer Hirsch has scooped a prestigious design award for its hybrid Performance Collection in its 250th anniversary year.

Hirsch was awarded a Red Dot Design Award for its Performance Collection of watch straps with judges praising the ‘high quality design’ of the concept.

The Performance Collection features straps with a lattice-structured natural rubber core and a leather ‘upper’, designed to offer the comfort and longevity of rubber with a genuine leather appearance.
