    Aftermarket Bracelet Just Arrived

    I posted some pictures of this watch, Citizen AS4035-04E, in an earlier thread.

    The watch is DLC but only came on a leather strap with a DLC deployment.

    Now this is a very fine combination as you can see.





































    However, I wanted the option of a black IP/DLC titanium bracelet for those hot sweaty summer months. Unfortunately Citizen stated there
    was no such bracelet available and even though I suggested a few models, whose size and shape looked similar, they said no they didn't have anything that would fit.

    I then went on the lookout for an aftermarket product. As far as DLC goes there was no chance, might as well looked for a plutonium one!

    I did eventually source a black IP titanium in Germany. The dimensions and colour looked good and as it had an unconditional return I bought it.

    I have fitted the bracelet and I am very pleased with the overall match. It is not perfect as you would expect but it certainly satisfies my needs.

    The colour match is very very close to the gun metal colour of the watch. The end links fit the diameter of the watch perfectly though are a little short of the full height of the watch. Very acceptable to me however.















































    The bracelet is of good quality and this was confirmed by the watchmaker who fitted and sized it for me. It is very light being Ti and feels silky smooth with the IP coating

    So what do you think a good combo or not?

    Would you share the source of the bracelet?

    I was very impressed with that watch when you posted pictures when you got it; it looks even better on the bracelet.

    It'd suit a 2-piece nylon strap too.

    great trio, and awesome chunky bracelet. i think there's a lot to like in citizen's lineup. i was pondering getting the (visually) little brother of that watch (image)

    Sure.

    Got the band from this supplier.

    I can really recommend them, they posted immediately and included a great cotton T. shirt, a pen and some sweets!


    They have a great return policy as well.

    PS

    Something unusual here, when I try to post the http address the WUS software replaces the name with smileys!!!!!!!!!!

    If you want to access you will need to type the address as stated and replace the smileys with the word '(s)chmiemann', dropping the brackets of course, as WUS will not print this word only smileys???????????

    Perhaps a mod can tell us why the WUS software will not print this word.

    I wish I knew...

    The forum software automatically 'translates' some swear words (and some other 'sensitive' words) into smileys, but I've no idea why it has done it here.
    I used to list my watches here until I realised it ruined people's Google searches...
