Watch Bond

So, say your wrist is looking a little less like a British spy's and a little more like an average Joe's. You want to do something about it, but you're not ready to dive in and buy a new Rolex. How about a new watchband? In Goldfinger and Thunderball, 007 wore his watch on a black cloth NATO* strap with twin gray regimental stripes (accompanied by a Rolex Submariner 6538—but who's counting?). Swap out your metal or leather band this Summer for one of these, it'll give your wrist a whole new casual-yet-hardcore look. And I think, legally-speaking, you'll be licensed to kill, Rolex or not. Get one here ($14-$17).

*NATO straps are military-issue length which are typically longer than regular watch bands, allowing you to wear it on top of a sleeve or fighter jacket, say.
