This removable cover can be made to fit any watch, but is particularly suitable for watches with fixed metal straps. It’s both pretty and practical, particularly if your skin is sensitive to metal.

I’ve always found that the metal strap on my watch is slightly too big and twiddles around on my wrist. (The next adjustment down is slightly too tight.) Then I developed an allergic reaction to the back of the watch itself.

After seeing a few watches with leather straps that passed behind the watch back, I decided to design a fabric strap which would fit over the original and sit between the watch and my wrist. It works well. The watch no longer twists around; the strap is more washable than leather and more comfortable than plastic.
