    Still, it looks great, and you could argue that it has more "vintage cred."

    I don't have the watch anymore but maybe this is of interest for those looking for a bracelet. That's an original Omega 1574/898. There should be aftermarket options for this type.
    I had shown these pictures in the main Estoril thread already and was asked about the bracelet and how it fits, here's my answer.

    I tried one of the eBay Bond 007 bracelets mentioned earlier in this thread but the one I received wouldn't even come close to fitting. I even took to a watch repair shop and they said it could not be made to fit. It was a nice bracelet so I was kind of bummed. I was able to return it so I guess the search continues. Some of the bracelets with folded end links look like less of a chore to get fitted and I might have to go that route.

    I took someone's advice here on the forum and contacted Bernhardt to get one of the dive watch bracelets. I ordered it Friday and it came I the mail today.

    It fits perfectly and was easy to remove links because of the screw pins that can be removed with a small flat head screwdriver. It didn't require any other adjustments. The only issue is that the bracelet says Bernhardt but it's so light, you barely notice.

    The bracelet makes the watch look much better. The stock NATO was too long for me.

    My favorite look on the Estoril so far has been a president bracelet. Just from ebay, hollow end links which required quite a bit of work to fit. The clasp is awful, but I think it looks great and am glad to have the Estoril on a bracelet. I'm not a leather strap fan and the Maratac zulu I had it on ended up having the glue separate near the buckle. I'd be interested if anyone has stitched options for a Zulu - but it has to be a Zulu - I won't wear a Nato.

    I ordered one of the Bernhardt Binnacle bracelets last week. It arrived today and went on like it was made for the watch. Couldn't be more pleased.

    Did you email Fred or how did you order the bracelet? I recall someone mentioning that Fred is not selling bracelets any more.

    i called him, got his number off of his website. He agreed right away to sell one, $50 including shipping. I had seen earlier in this thread where he wasn't selling them but maybe he just was out of stock for awhile.
