    Best Bracelet ever!!!!

    Hi
    dont recall a thread on this theme so thought i'd start one.

    What's the best watch bracelet you've ever had and why?

    My choice is my current 'DSSD bracelet' - Solid links, beautifully fit n finished, clasp is a unique event, lug link is remarkable. Very comfortable, not overly heavy. Instantly recognised classic oyster style. I know some don't like the taper and think it too drastic proportioned to the watch head, but i'm used to it so that now other bracelets that don't taper look odd.

    2nd honours is the "Breitling Pilot" bracelet - had one on a Chronomat, Headwind and Navitimer (all now flipped). Just wonderful design, very comfortable and beautifully made. My only issue was they were too highly polished.

    what about you?

    About time Rolex made some decent bracelets.. All the new bracelets from them are well designed.. the Deepsea, the GMT IIc, and the new Submariner line. Love those micro adjustments.

    HANDS DOWN: IWC Spitfire Mark XV. The Breitling Pilot's Bracelet and the Rolex Jubilee were fairly comfortable, but the IWC surpasses both.

    The best for the money is the Watchadoo that many of us have on our Monsters.

    The TAG link is probably the most comfortable I own followed by the titanium/SS on my BALL

    Expansion band, you'll be hard pressed to spend more 35 USD and a
    good one will last at least 20 years with care. Hadly-Roma is #1 right
    now.

    from the watch O owned and have.

    Rolex jubilee with simple clasp is very comfy.

    Seiko MM300 bracelet is built to take tough beating and very comfy, I have extra one just so I could it on other watches.

    The new rolex GMT2C is very nice, well made, comfy but very high cost, $4K for TT bracelet along!

    Marathon SS for comfort, styling, and proportion.

    IWC AT for ease of resizing.

    Glashutte Sport Evo, even better than my JLC bracelet.

    The lugs are slight curved as is the caseback, at 240 grams this sits on my 7.25" wrist with no sliding or flopping.



    The micro adjustment is brilliant on the clasp, 8 clicks for up to 1 full link of travel
