They are made in Sheffield and really are excellent quality but not cheap. The customer service from what is effectively a husband and wife team is also top notch.
Fair to say it’s akin to a woman’s charm bracelet but for men, with the various beads available? You mentioned leaving the beads at home. Are the beads about commemorating things or simply to personalize the bracelet to the wearer? Or both?

When my brother and I were kids, my grandparents gave me a signet ring with a D on it (I still have it) and my brother an ID bracket like the attached photo with his name on. I have always liked that style of bracelet and have occasionally thought of getting one with maybe my kids’ names on it.

And on the right wrist, a circular mass of technology! It's in "track me" mode and as you can see I'm on a very slow walk.

The women’s charm bracelet for men is a pretty good description.

Unlike the women’s though, these are fairly rigid so if you want it without beads you need it slightly smaller than if you want it with.

I’ve two, one full and one empty. The beads are more for decoration for me but they make ones you can have laser etched with a name or a picture. They also do capsule ones that you can insert a lock of hair or some ashes if you like.

Well Brad seems to have all round ‘wrist game’. At Wimbledon, embracing the trend for ISW’s he sports a Vacheron Constantin Jumbo 222, 1977. Coupled with some well appointed man jewellery. No Fitbit, no Apple Watch. Too cool for skool!
