    What types of watches typically look good with a fabric band?

    How do fabric bands look for every watch time? Are there some clear "no's" to that question? Like would you never wear a fabric band with a big diver watch?

    Well, fabric is a broad category, but in general dive watches look great on them. The watch type to avoid with a NATO/RAF/Zulu style strap is the dressier watches, bauhaus, roman numerals, that sort of stuff. However, sailcloth, cordora, or canvas two piece in a subdued color can look good on even a dressy watch as a leather stand-in. It's a very case by case basis.

    Diver's watches and pilot's watches tend to be extremely versatile, they look good on leather, fabric, and metal.

    Anything works with fabric except the really dressier or minimal watches, IMHO.
