of course I didn't take step-by-step photos, because that idea always comes after I finished something.... but making the strap for the watch is really easy. I cast on a few stitches, worked the band straight in linen stitch and formed a tip by decreasing one stitch on each side, until only three were left (don't ask me how many stitches I cast on, I can't remember. not that many, maybe 9 or 11 or thereabouts? depends on desired width and yarn thickness anyway - and maybe the pattern you choose). I darned in the threads and started to work an attached i-cord over 3 stitches along the sides (start anywhere you like) the loop is formed by knitting a normal i-cord for some rows - until the strap is long enough to form the loop you'll need. then keep working the attached i-cord until you are back from where you started (you might want to fix the i-cord loop with a few stitches later, if needed to make it look neat). fix both "ends" together with kitchener - that's it. you can embroider, attach beads or embellish any way you fancy - or not at all. attach watch part and button/bead or any other closure - and enjoy wearing it! that's all there is to it - nothing fancy at all. if your loop part stretches or you made it too long in the first place - don't worry, just wind it around itself once or twice before pushing over the button.
