Customisation is the biggest luxury trend, and easy-to-change watch straps that snap in and out are the simplest way to personalise a watch. Here is our selection of the best do-it-yourself systems that we have seen.

We think Louis Vuitton's new one-click system is the easiest to use, and it offers a huge selection of straps: from well-loved house icons to designs fresh off the catwalk. And what's even better is that these straps fit both existing and new Louis Vuitton watches.

Bulgari leads the way in customisation with the new Serpenti that, as well as having a range of super easy-to-change straps also lets you choose the dial colour, case material and gem-setting options.

The colours of the hugely successful Ricky bag by Ralph Lauren are now available in 40 different strap options for this Ralph Lauren watch.

Fine watchmaking doesn't mean you can't have fun and Jaeger-LeCoultre presents the Rendez-Vous Sonatina with a mechanical alarm and Moon phase indicator, as well as a really useful, easy strap-change system.

Hublot adds colour with interchangeable straps.

Boucheron was way ahead of the game. Since the 1950s the Reflet watch for both men and women comes with a selection of over 30 colours for watch straps that simply slide in - and out.

Expect to see more exciting ways to add colour and style to your watch as the fashion for customisation migrates to the wrist.
