    An Hour with the Dremel Yielded This

    A wjean mesh bracelet from eBay. Freakn' thing is damn sturdy. Not sure I'll do this again. You don't want to cut off too much as there's no going back so it's a lot of trial and error. I do like the results though.

    Don't have a clue what the before looked like or what you were trying to accomplish but I think it looks nice.

    I like the plongeur hands as well. What kind of watch is that?

    i also was wondering what or why you were cutting - normally these bracelets are short anyway -certainly the Omega bracelets are , and generally need an extension for most reasonably sized wrists

    Stellar job, the mesh looks great on the watch.

    I was cutting the mesh bracelet with a dremel tool. It was about 3" too long. Had to use a cutting disc to slice through each section of the links as I trimmed a row at a time. This watch used to have a leather strap. I don't think I'd do this again. Too much work.

    It's an older Android Skyguardian with a nicely decorated Sea-Gull movement.

    3 inches !! thats an extraordinary amount of superfluous steel for any normal bracelet!! forgive me but you seem to have a fairly large wrist already - was the original bracelet tailored for a giant
