Springy Watch Band "Click" to Login or Register

Years ago, I used to see expansion bands that were like a coil spring that had been flattened. I think that they were stainless steel, and were very comfortable. Any one else remember them?

I remember them and also remember that they would pull hair if they didn't fit right.
I also remember Forstner Komfit bands.The most comfortable metal band I ever saw.I would like to have one now.

Are you looking for one and, if so, what width?
I get them every now and then. They are about as much fun to repair as a slightly bent Slinky tm. . They are a lot of fun to stretch out too. I've stretched old ones out and pinned them to picture frames as decoration. A little gold spray paint and they look really cool.

Mind you, I wouldn't sacrifice one that was still usable. I'd like to see the exotic machine that made them.
