    Question Help compare two bracelets

    Hi,

    I have two "Orient" bracelets. Not sure if they are original or not and what are they worth. Could you help me get things stright?

    Got both with watches I've bought. The first came with the Orien Sea KIng NOS as an original and was never worn (still wrapped in nylon). The second came on a Citizen BN0150 god knows from where. I'll refer to the as SK and BN respectively. They both have some pros and cons but I'd appreciate a more knowledgeable opinion. I am going to sell the SK on one of them and not sure which to keep.

    Some Photos for assistance:

    BN inner


    SK outer




    I've done my comparison but I just don't know enough to be sure I am doing it right:

    Link attachment method:
    BN: Pins.
    SK: Screws! Best way!
    SK 1 - 0 BN

    Clasp:
    BN: Solid with a nice push button release.
    SK: Stamped with pull-to-release.
    SK 1 - 1 BN

    Micro Adjustments
    BN: 2
    SK: 6
    SK 2 - 1 BN

    End links
    BN: Weird and hard to get to spring bars. I really had to struggle when I took it off the Citizen it came on.
    SK: Hollow end links
    SK 2 - 1 BN (no points added)

    Attachment to clasp
    BN: Link
    SK: Folded metal
    SK 2 - 2 BN


    So I've got a draw - please help me decide.

    Thanks, D
