Default Watch straps

What would be a normal amount of watch straps to own?....as at present my own ratio seems to be about 4 straps per watch. I didnít set out for it to be this way, but the ratio seems to be edging towards 5:1 as each day passes. I seem to be looking at watch straps as much as watches. Also seems to be a never ending amount of spring-bars accumulating too.

probably 1 to 1 for me. i usually try to get a bracelet and it lives its life on the watch it initially goes onto. =)

Only about 80% of my watches have bands. Often I will have to take one off one watch to put on another.

Right now i. have a couple per watch, but not specific to any particular watch. As in I;ve got a bunch of 22mm that i bought to use with my Seiko divers, and I switch them up from time to time. Same goes with my lot of 20mm straps. If i was being concise, though, i'd say around 2:1. It's hard to keep it this low! :P

I am somewhere in the middle. I have a fair amount of extra straps, but not even one per watch. Somewhere in my garage is a box full of straps, from earlier days. I wish I knew where they were....

Jerry... looks like your Pooch is missing itís collar.





I prefer vintage rubber on my vintage divers and vintage chronoís on their vintage bracelets. Ofcourse there are exceptions and I do enjoy one of Terryís NATOís from time to time... but am not a hoarder so I only keep what I wear or itís listed FS. Same goes for watches.
