I’ve never been a bracelet guy. I’ll wear a watch but jewelry isn’t quite my thing. That said, I think I could get behind these Bombfell Flint braided leather bracelets because they look cool, they’re deeply understated, and they work really well with watches and smart devices.
The bracelets are made in the US from “American leather and repurposed, spent, .22 caliber ammo shells” – they ends are literally made of brass shells and you can see where the pins fired hit the shells. It’s pretty cool. They’re made in the Southwest by a company called Tres Cuervos and they offer solid leather bracelets for $40 or braided bracelets for $50.
At half a C-notes these things are pretty pricey but given that you’ll probably be wearing them for a few years. You can also buy them directly from the Tres Cuervos website. My take is simple: I’ve always wanted to try bracelets but nothing every really worked. These things fit my big wrists, they stay on even under duress, and look great. I’m not sure I’m going to end up being a bracelet guy but this is a fun start on that weird, winding road. Wish me luck.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
