    I don't like to own more than 3 or 4 watches at a time and this week two of them are en route to fellow WUS members. The battery in my Certina quartz is dead and I'm far too embarrassed to wear my 60mm Chinese irony-piece. Since I feel naked without something on my wrist, I wore my 16mm Brooks Brothers nylon strap by itself, as a bracelet. It's flipped upside-down to display the "Golden Fleece", Brooks' famous logo of a sheep hanging by a ribbon.
    It makes me feel like a prep school kid from Nantucket.

    I guess that depends on why you wear a watch in the first place Is it for show, or to actually know what time it is? I like a little bit of both

    I usually like to wear my Kabala string around my forehead...I might try a Nato sometime, but for now, my wrist wears a watch.

    I think I may continue wearing this band on my right hand to complement a watch on my left.

    Never done it, but doesn't look bad! Some men can pull off a bracelet of this type, some can't :)

    Nantucket has a prep school? Used to be a nice place to visit

    I suppose it looks alright, esp. for the summer.

    I will admit to having worn a watch without a battery for a day or two until I could get a replacement battery for it...

    Now I can safely say I should have enough watches to have something to wear, so I at least have some form of watch on.

    How about wearing a stainless steel bracelet? You could tie it with a rope and use the deployant to put it on/take it off.

    Replace the stainless steel with solid gold and you will have a true winner Nobody will look at your wrist expecting to find a watch attached to it with all that gold wrapped around.

    The MoMA had this bracelet called "Timeless." It's not available on their site anymore. I thought it was pretty cool, but I'd rather be wearing a real watch.

    Brooks Brothers. Very posh and preppy. You'll look like a Madison ave. Ad man.
