Having sent my share of spring bars into the Strastophere (they must be orbiting planet earth, because they are no where to be found in my house), I am wondering why more watches don't come with quick release bands. Is it a Macho thing to have to futz with them? Many of the "fashion" watches (shudder) come with them, so I am guessing the production technology is not that difficult or expensive. If given the choice between two identical bands, I would definitely pay extra for a quick release band. Anyone else with me on this?
