My Tissot Titanium factory band feels nice  , I do have a traser h3 with factory nylon band but gets grubby pretty quick in high humidity climates , but most of time I go bareback

Have you tried paracord watch bands?  You could either find someone to do them for you in whatever size you like or you could tie them yourself?

It's an interesting idea.

I prefer metal expansion bands, (stock photo for reference)

However, mostly I use NATO type bands, they're rather practical.

I can feel the hair ripping out of my arm just looking at that photo!

Leave the dents as they are- let your belongings show their scars as proudly as you do yours.

Hi,

I have had a couple of Seiko titanium watches with bands that were nice and didn't pinch.

For many years I have used NATO straps on most of my watches because I was collecting UK aircrew watches (have only four of them left now).



Lately, on my everyday watches I have been using the US mil-type nylon strap without NATOs metal keepers and extra (not needed) bit under the watch, they are more comfortable and less likely to catch on things.



cheers, John
