    18mm mesh recommendation?

    Hey everyone. I have a Vostok Amphibia that takes 18mm lug straps. I got a shark mesh bracelet from ebay, and even though it looks great, it's a bit jagged on the sides and snags on my shirt and jacket cuffs. I'm not keen on ruining my suit jackets so I was wondering if that is going to be a problem I will have with all mesh bands, or just this cheap one I got?

    Could anyone recommend a decent, but not too expensive bracelet for my Amphibia?

    Thanks!

Size:  57.0 KBHere is mine on mesh from Meranom.com.This is more like milanese mesh but still made for a diver. As for the one you already have maybe you will want to smooth out the edges with some fine emery cloth.-https://meranom.com/en/amphibian-cla...parts/?page=11- they also have other types of bracelets and straps available under spare parts.

    I have $6 mesh from eBay and don't have that problem. In fact the only noticeable differences between the eBay mesh and my strap code and Staib is the thickness and clasps. I think if the problem is limited to the jagged edges of the mesh you have and not the look you could probably do with a different eBay mesh. Staib is clearly a premium mesh but you can get the standard ones for under $100.

    Thanks. I actually ordered the one below for $10 bucks today. It's a womens' strap, but I have little Marco Rubio hands anyway so it should fit fine. The blue should go nicely with my Blue Scuba dial.
