    Watches on Leatherman Tread bracelet

    Since this bracelet was launched a few years ago I keep adapting this to my watches
    It's massive, heavy but I love it
    And it's so usefull....
    What do you think?

    It's a bold look and I admire your commitment to it. But I can't get behind it, I'm afraid!

    What's the mass of that lot?

    Is it painful? Looks like it could bite chunks out of a wrist!

    Your expensive Omega watch would come with a top quality bracelet or rubber strap. Why replace the bracelet or strap with that ridiculous looking thing?

    Not keen on wearing it independently of the watch? I imagine it would be much easier to use (and make that gorgeous watch even prettier!)

    I actually asked the local Omega AD to source the longest rubber for this watch
    Any normal one just doesn't fit my wrist
    Moreover my future Breitling Avenger Blackbird will be mounted straight on a black version of these Leatherman Tread
    And....how many of you can say that are wearing 32tools at hand at any given time ?

    I think it looks like a bit of unused rail road track if I'm honest, sorry...

    Have to agree. Rather put the tools in your pocket and the watch on a strap or NATO if you have to for length...

    Itís good we all have different tastes but itís not for me Iím afraid,but as long as you like it thatís all that matters.

    It reminds me of those Olongapo bracelets. Dreadful things altogether. Hehe.

    Sincere question: how often (if ever) do you use the tools built into the strap?

    I wouldnt wear it but it sounds like you have wrists like a gorilla upon which I think it would work, maybe bit of a strange combo though with the Seamaster as it sort of devalues it a bit..

    Give us a further back wrist shot..

    No worse looking than the majority of G-shocks. I do not tend to have a use for the tools on the bracelet, but if you do, then I'm all for it.

    For me, the Leatherman Tread is a degloving injury waiting to happen (please donít image search this if you donít know the term).

    In fact, I only wear NATOs when doing anything that could risk injury from the bracelet.

    I struggle to see the point in the Tread myself - for outdoor activities Iíd just carry a multitool for any mechanical fixes.

    A NATO would be a terrible choice if you're worried about degloving? Go for something that will fail more readily surely!

    But this is a multitool. In a different form factor. A screw driver is a screw driver. My leatherman would be no more efficient than this bracelet. In fact probably far less efficient given it has far fewer tools and its slip joint nature means just using the screwdriver tools are cumbersome.

    As to a degloving injury, how is this risk different to any bracelet etc?

    Would the watch not get scuffed to bits when actually using one of the tools ?

    I think compared to a bracelet itís a lot smoother and Iíd expect the buckle tang to go first. My logic may be flawed 😂

    OP - Your watch, your choice of course, but you asked for peoples opinions & I'm with the majority in thinking it looks awful.

    I think it looks like a conversation piece.

    Never mind the detractors, when they are broken down at the roadside with a stuck wheel, broken ECU or stone in the hoof you will be able to remove the appropriate tool and save the day. Hazaar !
