Leatherman Tread
 
This looks neat, but am I missing something, or is it a bit ironic that you need a jeweler's flathead screwdriver to get this off your wrist and use it?

I would imagine that each of those hinges bends enough so that the tool sticks out and can be used without disassembling the entire thing.

It would have to be pretty loose around the wrist in that case, and would be awkward to use, and you wouldn't have much torque..

It would be a pretty neat watch (there's a time piece as an accessory), and it wouldn't be a big deal to have a mini screwdriver stashed somewhere handy.

The #23 & #24 tools form the latch so you can take it off.

It is a cool idea but I'm not sure I'd want one, having that much metal bounding around on my wrist.

I'm always going through wrist bands, so this would be a good option, if the time piece is decent..

I wonder what links you loose by getting the watch option?

Looking at the design, I would say you could choose. As you said, it's just a flathead screwdriver to take it apart.

The watch option better be decent as it's around the $600 range if I remember right!
