What's a "watch sock"?

Hi All,

I thought I'd explain the Watch Sock. 

When thinking about how to package the straps we didn't want to create waste or have packing that added unnecessary cost to the product. Packaging that looks good, but doesn't serve a follow-up purpose is just creating waste. 

I used to keep my nicer watches in socks, in my sock drawer to keep them safe. That's where the idea for the watch sock came from. It's just a very simple, lightweight watch or strap pouch. It doesn't provide protection. It's not suitable as a travel pouch, it's just a watch sock. 

When you order more than one strap, you get a free watch sock handmade by Mrs Barks.

I hope you like them.




  • Received my black nato from B&J the other week in gorgeous packaging. Adrian clearly understands what it is to unwrap a new thing. Honestly put, I have this on my Omega planet ocean and it really is softer and less bulky than the omega one I bought for £125!! Haven’t looked twice. Great price. Great quality product. Cheers Adrian!

  • I thought it was only me that kept watches in my sock drawer. One sock for the pillow and the other to put the watch In hehehe

  • It would be nice if there was a drawstring at the top to allow you to pull it tight and stop the watch (or straps) falling out.

  • Can you supply the straps in a 22mm size, the look perfect. So hard to get NATO’s in the long length like these.

  • Can I just buy the watch sock….
