Opting for high quality is definitely recommended for the watch strap
As standard, the watch strap is half the width of the watch case. Although, this might not be the case, depending on the watch type selected. Be sure to take the above-mentioned points into consideration. You want your watch to reflect your style, and that's only possible if you choose the right watch size.
Over and above that you will need to look after the watch yourself too. Try to avoid contact with water and hard surfaces as much as you can. Leather straps are best maintained by regularly rubbing a dry cotton cloth over them. Never try to clean your timepiece yourself using a toothbrush.
