A mesh will always have that certain air of casual and free about it, thus making it occupy a lower rung on the ladder of strict "formality".
BUT, having said that, I hasten to add - as a big fan of meshes - that in a more casual setting/occasion, a cool watch on a mesh could have a MUCH higher "cool quotient" than a regular bracelet.
But in any case, it is a generally accepted rule of thumb that in a high formal setting, metal bracelets of any kind should be shunned in favor of a leather strap.

A man's watch is a very cherished thing. You steal that, you might as well be stealing his soul.

In all fairness, Metlin is mistaken here. You can wear a bracelet with something more formal than "'casual' business casual" (as your picture indicates), it just happens to be some sort of mortal sin. Seek ye absolution my child...
By the way, that is a gorgeous watch you have there.
