    We say "my watch strap is black". If that strap is made from metal forexample silver or something else what do we call it? Strap or not?

    It's not always a strap. What about, band?

    I meant that "Strap" is always acceptable whatever material it is.
    I should be more careful with the use of language.
    Thank you anyway.

    It's probably more important to read the question carefully.
