    Hadley Roma metal bracelet

    HiYa! I have never had a braclet and decided to try some affordable one before considering a purchase of OEM for $300-400, so I read some posts about strappedfortime.com and bought that bracelet.



    What pleasantly surprised - 3 days and the parcel was in my mail box.
    The bracelet is solid and feels durable. The only question I had - will I get used to that metal thing after soft leather. And how to remove some links to make it shorter.


    I was going to post the question "how to adjust metal braclet" here but before that I put that phrase in the search engine of that forum and whow - lots of very useful information poped up. In five min I knew how to do that. It is easy! Well, it is easy with my Bergeon 6767 tool. Really handy!



    Now - here we are! Still I can't say that since now I will be wearing only braclets, but what I can say - it turned out to be more confortable than I thought. I must give it some time to say definetly. And so far - it does not pull my hairs off. Thats good
    Hope it can help

    I'm a huge fan of Hadley Roma leather straps (or 'bands' if you prefer ) but have to say that is one cool bracelet - love the angled links - and it certainly looks fantastic on your Breitling. Well done - a great choice.

    If I were you, I wouldn't bother with the OEM bracelet - it probably wouldn't look as good (!) and I'd stash the money into my watch fund...

    Thank you for that. I like that thing more and more with every min I wore it. Seriously.

    The only "but" - I am afraid to scrach the watch case with the braclet when puting them somewhere... But this paranoic sympthom will be gone soon.

    Here is more or less clear photo of the watch on the bracelet. After week or so of wearing it - must admit: I was underestimating metal bracelets for long time. Moreover - it does not not pull my hairs from my hand, so I'm quite happy with the bracelet.
