Repairing a Watch with Horsehair

The watch after repair, now with a braided horsehair band.
After the new band was added.

I got a watch in for repair. The lady wanted it to have braided horsehair sides, instead of the chain sides it had come with. The chain kept breaking, and just wasn’t working. She wanted the horsehair to look like a herringbone pattern. This is how the watch looked when I first got it:

A watch I got in for repair, with broken chain sides as it started out.
What it looked like at the beginning.

I like it much better now, and so does she.
