I'd seen and admired the Baby Alpinist online - thought it was great. And I kept thinking about it - the way some watches kind of burrow into your brain. Eventually I started looking around for one at a good price (you know, to justify getting another watch... "I HAD to get it, it was such a good deal!") I finally came across one in near-new condition at a good price - and got it!
Immediately started wearing it. But it just wasn't clicking for me. Maybe it was the strap? While the strap was handsome enough, the deployant kind of sat on my wrist wrong... Digging in just enough that I'd feel it after a couple of hours.
So I started looking for a bracelet for it. The oyster-style OEM by Seiko was expensive... And just wasn't calling to me. There were some options that seemed to heavy/chunky for the watch. So I set my sights on the Uncle Seiko jubilee.
And as soon as I got it on, the whole thing just popped for me. NOW I loved it!
Do you have a story about a watch that you just weren't connecting with... Until you found the perfect band or bracelet? Tell us your story!
