Looking for a little advice / guidance here from the collective wisdom and experience of WUS.........
I've got a watch on preorder and I've also ordered a straight ended Oyster bracelet to go on it. The watch comes on a leather strap and the manufacturer does offer their own bracelet, but again straight ended.
I'm wondering if it would be possible to modify some SELs to fit. If they were solid that might be difficult, especially with my limited tools, but I did wonder if using folded SELs would potentially work. Has anyone ever tried this before?
The other option I'd thought about was about getting a machine shop to make some to suit, but thought this might get complicated / expensive / difficult. Anyone know of someone in the UK that might do this? Maybe a watchsmith?
I realise that the straight ended bracelet might need to be changed for one with SELs, which are subsequently modified, but am prepared to do that.
Obviously if this is a crazy idea and I should just forget it, please let me know......
......also is the public forum the best place for this question?
