Very pretty.  I really like the watch/bracelet crossover thing you've got going on.

It's hard to tell from the pic, but are the 2 strands of beads connected?

Looks good to me!  I really, really like your design. 

Nothing wrong with toggle clasps on watches; it's how I always make mine, and they work very well.  I prefer a looser bracelet style watch anyway.  Toggles give a nice design element to the piece, they're easy to hook, and they're very secure once they are hooked.

I love this!  I really like the jump rings between the beads, you did a great job! I like toggle clasps too, they seem to work really well. There are several different kinds of clasps and I think it would amount to personal preferences to the choice.  Very nice!
