    Replacement Bracelet or Rubber Strap for Oris Aquis

    First time to the Oris forum as I am considering a 43.5 Aquis purchase – the green version. It’s used and comes with the rubber strap. I like the rubber strap and am sure I would use it in the summer, at least. But I prefer bracelets and especially like the Aquis’ stainless steel bracelet. I can’t imagine owning this watch and not having the bracelet … or a good alternative.

    Has anyone purchased a replacement OEM Oris Aquis bracelet or a decent alternative? Where? How much?

    I’m not opposed to good aftermarket alternatives. I have a nice blue Seiko SBDC053 (yeah, Seiko naming stinks unless fans give them nicknames, like the Monster or Samurai) with a pretty nice Strapcode oyster bracelet specifically made for it, and it is perfect.

    Any similar aftermarket bracelets or straps out there for the Aquis? Any nice alternative bands, straps or bracelets people have swapped onto their Aquis? Pictures please if you have them.

    “Sugman” posted this picture a couple days ago of his Aquis Hulk, and it is awesome. And since threads need pictures (I think it’s a law), I’m reposting his great picture … holding the watch I want to purchase.

    Contact Topper for an OEM bracelet. They are not only a forum sponsor but seem to get lots of Browie points for their prices too.

    Keep in mind you will need a special (slightly expensive) tool to take straps off the Aquis.

    Have you actually used the "$30 on Ebay" tool? I've been checking around and following conversations for quite a while on alternate tools to use and I only recall one person who got one from Amazon that seemed to work however it later looked to actually damage the screws.

    Of course I may have missed or forgot somethings so someone please correct me if I'm wrong.
