Comfiest watch

Post by domecurb on Fri Jan 26 2018, 13:15

so whats your comfiest watch?
its no secret that i cant stand leather or fabric, i find them uncomfortable and unhygienic so all i wear is stainless steel bracelets or at a push rubber [ rarely ]

recently i put my Revue Thommen on a shark mesh  and it transformed not only the look but the comfort level



the mesh has so much movement in it that it follows the contour of the wrist
i figured this had to be the comfiest bracelet/ watch combo i have...but
then i remembered my Pantor Seahorse........and to be fair the mesh doesnt come close, it also follow the contours of the wrist, but the bracelet is made up of 128 components and is silky smooth to wear so no competition really


so whats your comfiest watch and why ?

Bit of a hard one to answer as I have not really thought about it . From the top of my head I would say this one



I think the reason it is comfy is because it is titanium so extremely light on the wrist. I did need to buy a bracelet extension for it but now that is on it is great to wear.

yes Ti is surprising in how light it is, its almost like plastic, i have a couple of Ti watches and i find them too light, if that makes any sense scratch

It is so light that sometimes it does not feel as though a watch is on the wrist this is why it is really comfy yet sometimes although not as comfy I do like to feel the weight of a watch I am wearing .

I like leather straps but have big wrists and sometimes feel that the buckle is on the side of my wrist and not the underneath this can be annoying.

Bonklip type straps are my favourite for comfort.





.......albeit very light they keep the watch in position and don’t 
catch hairs like some older bracelets can.




.....being able to position the clip exactly where you want it 
also enables effortless adjustment. Very Happy

@Daff62 I have not seen a bracelet like that before , at a first glance it looks as though it would not be comfy but would actually dig into the skin but after seeing it on your wrist I can see why you have selected it for this topic.
