From time to time I have had people approach me with various questions about the paracord watch bands: Which watches look the best with a paracord band? Should the band go on an expensive watch, or a work watch, or sport watch? The answer is fairly simple…whatever works best for you. The truth is, paracord watch bands are appropriate for any occasion. I’ve had some tell me they don’t want to put the band on their more expensive, “dress-up” watches; while others will tell me they rarely wear their paracord watch and only save it for special occasions. My response is the paracord band can be worn anytime you feel comfortable wearing it. I have had customers from all walks of life send me their watches to make a band for it, or purchase bands from me to put on their watches. From the every day, hard working utility “beater” watch to the high end, high class watch…I’ve seen them all. In fact, two of my favorite watches I’ve seen came to me from customers in Canada. One was a Seiko Green Monster, which I later found out was a very rare, limited edition timepiece and was only a available for a certain period of time in a certain quantity. Another watch that was sent to me for a paracord band installation carried a retail price of $2,995. Yet another, more recent watch was a Bell & Ross Aviation watch with a price tag of over $100,000. I’m still shocked someone out there trusted sending a watch of that value to a complete stranger in another country.
Personally, I wear a paracord band all the time, on various watches, and it’s definitely not just to promote my products. It is because I feel good with a paracord band on my wrist. It’s comfortable yet rugged, and functional yet stylish. I have watches with a lot of wear on them that I use for working and playing outside around the house: cutting wood, mowing the yard, plowing, farming, fishing, etc. I also have nicer watches that I wear out to dinner, or to weddings, etc. Then I have the “in-between” watch that might be worn to dinner at a friend or family member’s house, or just every day life activities.
The truth is that you can wear the paracord bands anywhere. It is a conversation-starter, and it lets everyone from every walk-of-life know that you are unique and are comfortable being yourself in any setting. The paracord band truly is an ATV for your wrist.
