    Just curious how other people are storing their extra bands? I'm a freak and like to be organized. I have three other bands that aren't in here. There is room for 8.

    I had this made so here is my solution ...

    I never thought of storing them properly..
    I just have 2 sport bands right now, and the unused one is just sitting my drawer.

    Mine (blue leather loop, milanese, black and white sport bands) are in the front pocket of my backpack. My SS link is on my wrist.

    I'm still on the hunt for what I want to store my extra bands in. Currently when my leather loop and classic buckle aren't on my wrist they are in the white casing Apple sells them in. My blue and black sports bands have gone between a couple different boxes or casings of sort- disposable/plastic/paper boxes I found lying around. (one was the packaging for an iPhone 6 case I have). I've been looking for something I like a lot for storage- and something like what you posted has crossed my mind, OP, but not completely sold on it just yet.

    oh very nice!

    I only have 2 extra.... and currently they sit in the drawer of the watch box (that is holding my other 2 unworn watches.) If/when I get more, I'm going to want something better than that.... something that has them separated from each other, but together....

    I don't travel.... so for me, ideally.... something that either sits on top of my dresser or in one of the dresser drawers....

    I keep a little wooden box on my dresser for my 4 bands. I hate clutter on my dresser and they never get lost since they have a designated place.

    She also makes them in leather and to whatever size you need. I asked for 8 pockets that were 4 cm wide. Perhaps you would like more pockets or if you have a 42mm watch, wider pockets. I am very pleased with the quality and price.

    Good Luck!

    Oh wow how on earth did i miss this thread? I posted this in another thread, but here it is again. Offloading some bands as i speak. Don't want to buy another watch roll, and 15 bands is way too many! lol. 10 will be ok i think. Gucci and top right croc leather are first to go.

    Yes!
    That's right up my alley. I ️ all the bands. Question, is your watch a 42 or 38? If 38, where did you get the colored leather bands on the left? Love those!!
    Thanks for posting.

    Lol, i noticed you bought the watch roll from the same person 'KukiWorks' in Turkey. I didn't realise you could ask her to make the pockets less wider and increasing the number while also omitting the tool pocket (which i use so would hate to lose).


    To be honest the colorful bands were the first bands i bought and loved them, but since getting some other really higher quality bands for around the same price i dont wear them as much. They are Lorica leather, so synthetic, waterproof and sweatproof, which is why i got them as opposed to the apple sports bands. They are sometimes referred to Vegan-leather so that must be a plus for some.

    Anyway back to the important stuff. mine is a 42mm, so i am using 24mm straps. If yours is a 38mm you need 22mm straps. Which... YES! are available right here. :)

    Oh okay. I know that band company. I was looking for leather so will wait a bit then. Do the adaptors come with those bands or have you bought those seperately? So far, all the bands I have purchased have been ready to go out the box.

    Yes, she'll make the roll to your specifications and with as many pockets as you like. I'm in Sweden so turnaround was very quick (ordered on Friday and got it the following Friday). I have 8 pockets but if I start to run out of space will have her make another one but larger. I ️ Etsy. You can find ANYTHING there!

    Thanks again for sharing.
