    Burning wrists?

    So I'm wondering whether anyone else gets those red-hot burning wrists when wearing a watch with a metal bracelet in summer time?
    It's no quite so bad here in Aus, we have the blessing and the curse around Melbourne of often having all four seasons in one day. But I still notice on a hot summer day when I'm on the sand all day the watch I wear just soaks up the sun, and the metal really feels uncomfortably hot on my skin.

    On my Doxa and my Orange Monster in particular, which utterly depresses me. I've taken to wearing a Nato if I'm going to be in the water all day, but considering my move to Malaysia very soon (which will have that constant heat), I'm just wondering whether anyone else has had this problem, if there's any solution, or whether I'm doomed to live in Nato for my days?

    (or whether I'm a freak!)

    I don't think I've ever had this problem! Interesting...

    Are you sure you are not dealing with an allergic reaction of some form?

    If I sat in the sun that long I'd be toast.
    I hope you're doing the slip, slop, slap thing

    I think you're stuck with Nato's. Or maybe titanium wouldn't get so hot.

    I just can't imagine a metallic watch band absorbing that much heat during constant wear.

    Sounds like a dermatological issue to me, perhaps some type of hypersensitivity condition.

    It's not a constant thing; it really is just on the hottest days that I can feel it. I DO have very sensitive skin; jewellery etc is always a drama, but it's really only when it's above say thirty five degrees c that I feel a definite discomfort. And tend to take them off until they cool.
    Clearly I'm just a freak and my skin is just mental :(

    I guess that looks the most likely, but it ONLY happens when it's quite hot!
