It: a situation? A feeling? An emotion? A crime? Something embarrassing? Is the material of the bracelet relevant?

Relevant where the situation happened? If so: indoors? outdoors? both Time relevant? (as in century, etc) no - a couple of days ago Time of the day? "situation" is probably not the right word here because it lasted more or less the whole day

Did the bracelet serve a purpose, other than acting as an accessory to an outfit? If so, was it a medical bracelet?

Anything written on the bracelet?

Am I correct in my understanding that there is a bracelet AND a watch relevant to this puzzle?

Is a frying pan relevant?

Did the bracelet and/or watch lead to any sort of miscomfort?
Were you unable to take off the bracelet and/or watch?
Were the bracelet and/or watch about to come off your wrist and you were trying to keep them on?

Were you wearing the bracelet and/or watch in the first place?
Or were you looking for them? And couldn't find them?
Or were they lying somewhere where they would be likely to get damaged/lost/stolen?

Do you normally wear the bracelet where you were wearing it?
Do you normally wear the watch where you were wearing the bracelet?

Did you wear the bracelet only so that your wrist wouldn't feel "naked"?
But wearing the bracelet was worse than not wearing anything because the feeling of the bracelet made you think that the watch was there?

Did you feel the urge to check the time but couldn't because the watch wasn't where you expected it to be (on your wrist, that is)?
Did you feel unwell due to not wearing a watch in general?

I'm skipping Rbruma's and Soli's questions because we have a winner.

Do you normally wear the bracelet where you were wearing it? no
Do you normally wear the watch where you were wearing the bracelet? yes

Did you wear the bracelet only so that your wrist wouldn't feel "naked"? yes
But wearing the bracelet was worse than not wearing anything because the feeling of the bracelet made you think that the watch was there? yesish

Did you feel the urge to check the time but couldn't because the watch wasn't where you expected it to be (on your wrist, that is)? yes!
Did you feel unwell due to not wearing a watch in general? that too

********SPOILER********
I almost always wear a watch on my left wrist, and I can't stand the feeling of a "naked" wrist.
Some days ago, I couldn't find my watch and decided to put on a bracelet so that my wrist wouldn't feel naked.

But instead of solving the problem, it only made it worse: I subconsciously mistook my bracelet for my watch and had the urge to check the time about every ten minutes - only to end up staring at a couple of glass beads.


Nice solve, Potato, and thanks for playing, everyone (:

I know that feeling. I had to wear a bandage on my left wrist for a couple of days lately and put my watch on my right wrist instead. It was unnerving both because I would still look at my left wrist for checking the time even though the watch was missing and I couldn't get used to the watch being on the right.

Nice puzzle!
