Re: Nickel allergy and watches

Hi guys,

I have been wondering if there is a (permanent) solution for people with nickel allergies who want to wear watches. I'm not picky about which watch I wear (plastic/gold/metal/other), but I'd like a method to secure that there is no contact between watch and wrist.


Most higher end watches don't have Nickel in their back covers anymore. However, a good way to avoid contact with the back of the watch is to get a so called NATO strap (just google it) - they typically wrap around the back, your wrist will only touch the strap.




ps: Sorry for reviving this old thread

I've had my watch for a verrrry long time now it's very well made 316l stainless steel, no problems whatsoever, without any extra protection.

Thanks anyway

:-) I basically only mentioned it because I was looking into NATO straps (that are in right now) and read that they're the perfect solution for people who have nickle allergy.

I've always found gold or platinum watches don't cause this sort of problem
