    I thought this strap was kind of interesting

    So my dad has noticed my interest in watches recently when I went to his house he wanted to show me a watch/strap that he was given when he was in jr highschool so mid 70s. He said the strap was givin to him buy his dad who bought it years earlier from the John deer dealer in town, so his watch wouldn’t get banged up on the tractor during plowing season or harvest. My dad added the watch so this one isn’t the original for this strap. I thought it was kinda cool and worth a share

    I believe some of the modern versions are used by the military.

    Google... "military watch cover band"

    Cool band

    I used to have one of those when I was a kid. I think you can still buy them, but I haven't seen any for sale for a few years now.

    I had one when I was a kid too. Think it was a thing in this part of the world. Here's one I picked up a few years back that held a pristine 70's Timex. Must say they do protect a watch admirably.
