    Men's bracelet?

    So I'm thinking about getting myself a men's bracelet (maybe something with a mix of leather, metal, textile and stone, not too thin, like 0.5 cm, not too broad, like 10 cm)... what I've found so far in the www is rather meh. If any of you has some suggestion on where to find such a bracelet, I'd be very grateful.

    Cheers,
    Christian

    Who, me? Nah, don't like them watches... They need service, they attract unwanted attention... Give me an honest bracelet and I'll be on my way :D

    I was brought up to believe there was no such thing as a men's bracelet.

    I was brought up in communist Romania. Back then, the only socially acceptable men's bracelet was a proper handcuff.

    Fast forward 40 years, and a bracelet becomes an interesting idea.

    Go for it. I'm slowly going down the mid life crisis list and ticking things off.
    I started wearing a bracelet several months ago which is way out of my comfort zone but actually turned out to like it.
    I'm currently wearing a leather pleated bracelet with a fantastic steel clasp from Sonofnoa alongside a vintage white gold Cartier love bracelet. This is permanent unless you have a small screwdriver handy, which again freaked me out in the beginning.
    Think I'll get a Homosatchel next.

    prices on that site for silver are downright funny, you can pick silver chains up for next to nothing at auction houses (you can make bracelets from old pocketwatch chains easy enough) - alternatively look at etsy etc for something handmade/different .

    Get a Copper one. Then you can say it's for the old Arthritis.

    I like the Fathom bracelets....... I wear 2 at once in contrasting colours.........plenty of positive comments, in fact my Berber surf instructor liked it so much last year I gave him the one I was wearing and replaced when I returned to the UK.....

    www.fathombracelets.com

    Appreciate not everyones cup of tea, and over priced for what they are but there you go.

    Yup. Man up, and get a heavy gold neck chain.

    My wife took a liking to bracelet of mine she came across.
    She wore it for a couple of months in her job as a primary school teacher before I told it was cock ring - which it was ⭕️

    Got a few John Hardy bracelets. Expensive but worth it.

    A bracelet is pointless without one of these.

    Saw Clarkson with some wrist nonsense on last Friday on the Jonathan Ross show.
    Looked completely ridiculous and I have to admit I died a little inside.

    I didn't expect this topic to be that controversial, but I guess it's a good alternative to the Brexit thread in the BP.

    Anyway, got some good suggestions, especially Etsy and John Hardy. Many thanks!

    As for the nay sayers... relax, it's just another form of trinkets for the wrist.

    I was wondering whether you're after one for the wrist or for the ankle. These are quite popular in the UK at the moment

    Always liked the Buddha to Buddha stuff but never got round to getting one, probably a bit too expensive at the time. I've one of this anchor and leather efforts though and am pleased with it.

    Believe it or not, I was able to steal this near mint B2B off eBay last year for under $40. That about 90% off the new cost!

    I have one of these. As far as I know there's only one retailer in the UK, so you won't see anyone else wearing one. Mixture of composite materials, steel, rose gold and yes, it even has a diamond on the clasp.

    Indeed, they can even be seen in the House of Commons!

    Rocktonica as mentioned above. I have a few bracelets and the quality is superb.
