    Sure...if you wanna go all practical and stuff. This pocket watch actually just fit the fifth pocket in my pants. I am told that was the original reason why they make a fifth pocket in the first place. Use it or loose it? ;-) If you are going to use it as a stop watch (Chronograph), it is easier/better with the watch in your hand. Finally I just find I like the ritual of fishing the watch out of the pocket. Never mind that my skin did not like to have a wristwatch strapped to it. In this I found no difference between either arm, tho I had it mostly on my left non-dominant arm before switching to a pocket watch I must admit

    That's a Raine Military Covered Watchband. One type is used in place of your watch band, another lets you wear the watch with the original band still on.

    There are many, many to choose from.

    Thanks, I can't find any measurements but from what I can see it doesn't look like it will accommodate large watches. In the old days you could get a leather bund strap and cover but they're hard to find.

    How do you plan to do that? Using a winder? Shaking to get it started and then wearing it is how I do... none of mine can be stem-wound...

    You can try TACMonsterWatchbands. Those are 2 inches wide.

    MKLeather offers a covered bund strap. I remember when I really wanted one.

    Since you found no difference between either arm, why didy you wear it in your left?
    And why did you change to a pocket watch?!?

    I found no difference as to how much it irritated my skin. But using it on the left hand, it felt 'in the way'. I have atopic eczema, so most anything not cotton will irritate my skin. A leather strap functioned best, but in the end I had to switch to a pocket watch, starting with a Wenger
