These days I seem to have more straps, bracelets (bands) and deployment fittings than watch models, possibly fueled by this notion I have to every so often “change” the look of my collection. Despite what the original strap or bracelet looked like, I find it fun to change them every so often.
In fact it’s true to say that sometimes after a change from an original strap to one of your own choosing with perhaps different metal or color or style, whatever, you realize that for you the original was never a good idea in the first place. How the designer came up with it to start with is sometimes a mystery!
Now whilst I do manage to change many of the watch strap/case combinations from time to time, I always retain the original just in case I get fed up with the watch, or maybe never wear it and sell it on to someone else.
So there are a few I’ve changed recently and no I’ll not show the originals – but they actually look pretty good to me in their new garb. Until I decide one day to change them again, maybe to the originals or maybe a new color or whatever. And that’s the fun with an eclectic collection, like a little boy you can play with them to your hearts content!
