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?
