I've been using these 24/7 for 20 years; rafting, industrial construction; name it. They're warm in winter, don't sweat in the summer, dry quickly, soft and comfy after a few weeks, and the band will not break or tear off . That may be a problem but I can't imagine the situation. If you snag your watch on something one of the pins will be torn out but you won't lose your watch.
If it gets greasy from automotive work it goes into the washer; watch and all with the coveralls and comes out like new.
Cons: the Velcro wears out and frays after 2-3 years of 24/7 wear. The Velcro traps fine sawdust which annoys the wife. Only available in black.
