    Cool Alternative Metal bracelet for the OVM

    Hi I'm relatively new member to this excellent forum. One thing i have not been able to find is posts is Alternative bracelet straps for the OVM. I know many many posts showing Nato style straps but nothing ( i think ) on alternative Metal straps. Can any advice. I'm aware people like the homage look with Nato straps looking similar to the 5517 but for me i like a metal strap as i feel the watch has more class/style then a canvas/leather strap I understand it is all about personal taste so I'm not looking to offend users of canvas,leather straps.

    Cheers in advance

    Andy

    Try Strapcode.com, or Tungchoy.com for starters.

    Presumably, you speak of the Steinhart Ocean Vintage Military. I' ve found the stock bracelet of my Ocean Black (same case) to be excellent. I' ve tried other 2 piece straps and mesh bracelets. But found the large gap between the case and springbar to be unsightly. It just doesn' t look right and bugged me to no end. So, back to the OEM bracelet for me.

    Hi Nakano thanks for your thoughts, yes I'm talking about the Steinhart Ocean Vintage Military ( OVM ) bracelet. Looks like i will have to stick with the original myself. So there is no alternative bracelet with the correct curved ends out there on the market.. Shame

    Nice job. Sometimes you need to experiment a bit. And it worked out for you. Now if I can only get one of those bracelets with a black finish and won' t cost as much as the watch!
