Gigon says, "If you use snakes or crocodile skin, problems such as animal cruelty will arise, but for edible salmon this kind of problem will not occur so it can be said to be a fair material.In addition, salmon skin has sufficient texture as a material Because of that, I think that many salmon bracelets will be on sale in the future watch industry. "
