DIY inspiration: the collar watch

Someone wears more than one watch,maybe set on different time zones,some others wear toy or strange watchs but nobody until now have worn a watch instead of a tie! It turns out that this strange tie is and Hermes collar watch and it's a fun alternative to a watch necklace.Basically is just a watch with longer bracelet.
To make this strange accessory you can
use a thin belt you already own
cut it in the middle and adjust its lenght to fit your neck,you'll be able to close the necklace with the existing buckle or snap button
insert the clock face and then fold and glue the ends as if the clock was a buckle
wear your collar

The clock this way is nothing more than a charm because it will be impossible to read the time, as an alternative you can insert the clock face in a belt and have your clock at the waist and an unusual belt.
What do you think?

C'è chi ne indossa più di uno,magari su fusi orari diversi,chi ne sfoggia di finti o di curiosi ma nessuno indossa gli orologi come cravatte!
Ecco a voi l'orologio-collare di Hermes,praticamente un orologio con un cinturino più lungo.
Per replicare questo look vi serve un orologio e una cinta sottile
tagliate la cinta al centro e aggiustatene la lunghezza (qualche cm più lunga del collo)
inserite il quadrante dell'orologio e piegate e incollate i bordi della cinta come se il quadrante fosse una fibbia
e voilà

se vi sembra sprecato indossare un orologio di cui non potete leggere l'ora allora inserite il quadrante in una cinta sottile e avrete l'orologio a portata di mano legato in vita ed una cinta che non passa inosservata!

It looks interesting with that shirt. I'm trying to visualize it in another outfit and I'm not there yet. But what a way to get creative.
