Greetings all, first-time poster here. I just received a shipment of $4 eBay Milanese mesh straps for a Speedmaster FOIS (of 19mm lug width fame) and a SKX171/007 mashup (22mm). After a bit of fiddling to adjust and install, so nothing out of the ordinary, here they are, and apologies for the photo quality:
The black mesh on the Speedmaster puts it halfway to looking like a seatbelt NATO strap, which is an interesting effect. I did also get a bare stainless one for it, because for $4, why not? Meanwhile, the SKX looks very at home with the mesh band; maybe it's the metal-ringed indices, but IMO it works surprisingly well with dressier bands like mesh and leather, at least more so than the regular SKX007.
