Ever go into a jewelry or watch store and try to find a replacement watchband that didn’t run the gamut from black to brown? If you have you know how frustrating it is to try to find something with a little spark, a little zing and a slight departure from the norm. I have been able to find some interesting grosgrain ones in fun colors for summer in some shops but when I went looking recently for something amusing in crocodile, lizard or plain cowhide in a deep red, my time ran out. . . so I turned to the Internet. Not only did that save me a lot of time pounding the pavement in my quest for a bit of elan but I did find the perfect saturated red croc band that I had been searching for. It added just the right touch of unexpected color and chic to a plain tank watch. Take a risk for your wrist – it’s red or dead – and most Rustic Chic.
