    Would this bracelet fit the Orient Ray I?

    Hey guys,

    I was wondering if anyone knew if this bracelet would fit the Orient Ray I, even though the site says that it's made for Orient Ray II.

    Not sure if they are the same size.

    Thank you!

    That's a nice bracelet. To the best of my knowledge the Ray and Ray II use the same case, so likely yes. You could check dimensions on the Orient site, or check specs on some of the retail sites.

    Thanks guys. I missed out on a bidding war for an Orient Ray and have another person who has the watch but not the strap. Do you know anyone who is looking to sell their Orient Ray I?

    I would just keep watching the sales forum. They do come up. Or check the Orient Watch USA site. I believe they have a Valentine's Day sale going on right now on the Ray II.

    Re: Would this bracelet fit the Orient Ray I?

    Hi, first post. I just picked up a used Ray I and was/am looking for a bracelet. I emailed Strapcode. Response below. I believe both first gen Mako's and Ray's share an identical case.

    _______

    Hello,

    Previously, a buyer reported to us that his Mako I cannot use our Orient Mako II replacement bracelet. So, currently we could only suggest straight end versions for you.

    Please feel free to let us know if you need any further assist.


    Wish you have a nice day!


    Kind Regards,
    Jeffrey Y.

    I can't imagine why the bracelets for Mako/Ray II don't fit the I since it's supposed to be the same case, just no pusher. Maybe the pin holes are slightly different? Anyway, I wasn't willing to take the risk and went with a straight end bracelet myself.

    It seems odd to me too, but I'd rather not risk it. Must be the pin holes.

    I'm not sure I dig the straight end link look with steel bracelets - do you have pic of yours? I don't know what my problem is, any leather or canvas straps would be straight across. In fact, I have it on an old leather now. Looks fine.

    I was skeptical as well and have grown to really like it. Plus the straight type are super easy to swap on and off. Not best picture but you get the idea.
