    Need help finding bracelet for my moonwatch

    I recently bought the 311.33.42.30.01.002, which is the 42mm sapphire on leather. In hindsight, on hotter days I would rather not have a leather band, and am not a huge fan of nato straps, so I probably should have gone the bracelet route. Too late now.

    I want to now just buy the bracelet for it separately, but I can’t seem to figure out which ones will fit since there are so many variations and generations of this watch.

    Trying to avoid going into a boutique and paying boutique prices and waiting. Figure there are going to be some pre owned ones floating around here from time to time.

    Thanks all!

    Bracelets on Speedy are overrated. Don’t do it
    There are no shortcuts to anywhere worth going

    Although the Speedy is a strap monster, when I finally get one I'll be getting a bracelet with it. I know I'll personally have times where I'll want it. Good luck in your search!

    My sapphire sandwich 311.30.42.30.01.006 came on the STZ004194 bracelet, which is the newer screw style bracelet. Mine has no etchings on the end links. I put the 117STZ001154 micro adjust bracelet on mine with 118ST1589 clasp end links.

    I believe the 1958/957 bracelet is the older pin/collar style that fits the same case, but you'd want to verify that.

    It's a chunky, heavy bracelet, made chunkier by the micro adjust bracelet. Some people prefer the older, lighter bracelets, but if you don't mind the modern chunky bracelets, this setup should fit.

    That's actually the first Moonwatch bracelet which started using screws. The last pin/collar style is the 1998/849, which replaced the 1998/840, which replaced the 1498/840, etc etc.

    Thanks! Despite trying to keep notes on this, it's a confusing topic...

    Another option is the Uncle Seiko Beads of Rice for the Speedy. I have one (thanks, Larry!) and it's very well made and looks cool on the Speedy. Definitely worth the (less than) $100 bill.

    I've been admiring these. How's the clasp adjustment? It looks like there might be 3 holes; it's hard to tell from the website pics.
