    Ya have a spare strap just laying around?

    I opened a drawer to find something and noticed I had a few straps running loose. So I bagged them. This is half!!

    Straps annoy me. Watches come and go, but the strap experiments remain. I have a purposely small box for straps, and when Iím struggling to close the lid I throw a few away.

    I canít remember what half of them were ever for, and if Iím looking for one to fit a new watch, thereís rarely one that will do the job. So I buy a couple more.

    Straps seem to represent the disorganised part of my life. Donít like it.

    Real life good pics. from suppliers would help no end, very few match when the strap drops on the doormat , accounts for a far few sorry to say .
    Again, a reason to get something to match

    got some storage boxes got one for bracelets one for natos and one special tool leather straps and a big short bread tin full of straps it's always handy for when flogging a watch they always sell better on a strap must buy some more 18mm thinking about it and some spring bars to match also have a box that holds lots of buckles / clasp / loops / odd links pins collars etc oh and another with some vintage bonkclips and the like in
    one night I dreamed I was locked in my fathers watch, with Ptolemy and twenty one ruby stars mounted on spheres and the primum mobile coiled and gleaming to the end of space and the notched spheres eating each other's rinds to the last tooth of time and the case closed - John Ciardi ...

    So does this mean I shouldn't send you that pile of NATOs someone gave me?
    Too many watches, not enough wrists.

    well as I said on your free stuff thread could probably use them at some point on the stuff I sell or on my divers if the rubber strap. but if other member want them of course they should have them am easy really which ever works best for you
