    Why were straps so long on some old watches?

    I doubt any of these are original. The originals I have encountered were fairly small.

    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    I see, I'm waitng for an old watch that I won with a very long strap but it can be as you say a later addison. I was thinking it couild be that they had the watch on the upper arm so as to get it out of the way of work.

    Straps on old pilot watches were so long so that they could strap them over their thick leather bomber jackets - or even around their thighs if they found that more convenient for constant viewing during flight!

    Look on the bright side ... at least she's not insisting you sell any of them.
