I hear that. I like bead bracelets to look a little 'downmarket', but distinctive. Real stones like black onyx or agate (meaning round beads approx. 6 ml dia.) look damn fine. Decorative, cheap to buy, and classic but funky. Sure, just a watch is good too, but one gots to mix it up. I have a cheap ass ball chain bracelet that I got from the kitch emporium San Fransisco. It's about a five buck piece, but it's brass and it looks elemental, so kind of inscrutable. It gets lots of comments, but it's a trinket. Funny. My Movado looks good too, but for different apps.
