    Best bracelet on a less than $3,000 watch?

    The bracelet on my Explorer I 214270 was excellent. I have handled an AP Royal Oak and VC Overseas, those bracelets were amazing. I love the bracelet on a Blancpain Bathyscaphe. I have not been able to find a terrific bracelet on a more affordable watch. My Black Bay (ETA) bracelet is okay, not great. I am not thrilled with my Divers 65 bracelet (although that is partly due to the lug design). The Sinn H-link bracelet was good but I wasnt fond of the polished center links, they scratched too easily.

    Who makes the best and most comfortable bracelet on a watch that can be purchased (new/used/gray) for $3k or less?

    What is wrong with the blackbay bracelet? It's pretty impressive imo.

    Would you care to elaborate on what features make a bracelet "best"? Fit and finish? Scratch resistance? Solid links? Solid pins? Corrosion resistance?

    What about comfort is important to you? Lack of sharp edges? Contouring matching the curvature of your wrist? Micro-adjustments? Non-irritating metals? Weight?
