    Question Have you ever bought a watch, Just for the strap or bracelet

    Yes. Oakley watches. Because they look like Klingon spinal columns.
    So what difference does it make, whether it's 20 minutes or 20 years, since neither amounts to the faintest echo of the tiniest whisper in the thunder of time.

    Invicta: They often have very good quality straps-- when on clearance sale the strap may be worth more than the price of the whole watch.
    The best watch is the one that makes you happiest... and tells the time.

    Close, but not quite: I bought a Sinn U1 in large part because of the amazing rubber strap, but that wasn't the only reason!

    Yeah, I did this a number of times when I collected Casio. I'd score a vintage piece without the bracelet and then buy a less expensive model that took the same bracelet and do a swap. I've done the same for boxes: bought an old Texas Instruments to get the original box and just recently a Mercury Time, though it may be the wrong box. Drat, foiled again!
