Sterling silver dials exist but I haven't seen wristwatches entirely made of them.

Probably too soft and easy to scratch for everyday use. But then again there are silver bracelets and belt buckles. And gold isn't exactly very hard, either.

Allergies perhaps? Or too expensive?

Silver was a quite common metal for both wrist and pocket watches in the past.
Before S/s got common, it was the middle of the range metal. (I am talking solid metal). Silverode / German Silver being the cheapest, and gold or Platinum the most expensive.

I would think Silver lost popularity due to the softness and also it tarnishes, which leads to black wrists and dirty cuffs.

Personally, I would love a Silver cased Reverso.

I am just curious. How many of us have a sterling silver watches? It is so random to see various gold, platinum, palladium, stainless steel watches, but what about a sterling silver? There is certainly some magic over there...
