    WRUW with Your Vintage Watch on Your Other Wrist ?

    Hi - in a flash this topic idea came to me because I wear, like most of us a vintage watch every day (for me on my left wrist, because I'm right handed) - then I change watches every day so I thought but about the other wrist ? What is everyone wearing ?!!!

    So here we go ! I usually wear about 4-5 bracelets even dressy ones with a suit and maybe one rubber 'bracelet' for colour

    Today at my Surrey Train Station: Left to right: stainless steel, stainless steel under leather, sterling silver with black manta ray skin, black leather (Montblanc) and a rubber green 'bracelet' - Promoting steam engines in Northern England !

    So hope this topic is 'ok' - pics and comments welcome from the 'vintage Brothers' !!! Cheers, SDA

    This is the 'Steam Again' appeal that is what the green rubber bracelet is for ...

    T - thanks for replying !! I was worried this slightly 'off beat' thread was going to be a bust!

    Matt's post has got me thinking again - how about we add for this thread, that anyone who has a vintage watch tattoo should post it ?! I don't so I can't ! SDA
