    Woven paracord bracelet/watchband

    I've made two of these over the last year or so. Thank you to Stormdrane for making this instructable and making it with great detail and pictures. If you follow these directions precisely and don't try to amend them or take shortcuts (I tried and the results were far less than perfect lol) you'll be able to do this easily and have it come out perfect every time. Sorry no pics, but I used a camo colored 550 paracord and made a 1 piece band for a Timex T45181 Resin Combo watch. It looks great because the watch has a drab green housing and a tan face, so it's a natural pairing. The other was a black, white and gray 550 paracord one piece band for a Timex T49828 Metal Combo watch. That watch has a steel housing with a brushed finish and a white face and is my personal favorite out of all 1...

The other was a black, white and gray 550 paracord one piece band for a Timex T49828 Metal Combo watch. That watch has a steel housing with a brushed finish and a white face and is my personal favorite out of all 17 of my watches, regardless of which band is on it. Yes I have a watch problem lol. Either way all I have to do is remove 1 of the pins to change the battery. It only takes an extra 45 seconds or so to change the battery versus having the original bands, and that includes putting it back together and having the watch wearable and ready to go again. Also, it's extremely easy to change the bands back to original if need be. After you wear the watch for a while, the paracord band will hold its shape after removing the watch from it, so you don't have to worry about ruining the band by removing it.
