    Could use some advice and help locating Orient bracelet parts ?

    Hey all, after buying a new/used Orient Beast I had a jeweler re install a couple links that where removed from the previous owner. Well he lost 3 bracelet pins and 3 locking/compression barrels(not sure what they`re called) and ruined one of the links on a grinder. When he handed the watch back to me I could`t even talk I was so mad. So now I need at the least 3 new pins since he replaced them with these cheap pins that are falling out. I talked to Orient and they said they can only sell me a new bracelet. I just need new pins and maybe 1 or 2 links, can anyone guide me in the right direction to find these parts ? OR turn me on to a couple sites that sell quality bracelets and straps ?

    You may want to post in the WTB section for this particular bracelet or even for spare links. I was fortunate enough to receive a donor bracelet for my 300 Sat diver from a generous member. And was able to salvage a few spare pins and collars. Unfortunately and rather lame IMO, that Orient chooses not to offer such spares. Last I contacted them, I was quoted several hundred dollars for a complete bracelet- no single links available.

    Also look on eBay under a search term like "Orient Watch Accessories". That is going to be a tough find unless you get lucky and someone out there has some privately for sale.

    I have been looking for a bracelet for my mako since mine came with the rubber dive band. They go for rediculous amounts on ebay. You probably would be best off buying a new band. Just the price kills it. I can almost re-buy the watch for the cost of the crap bracelet that comes with it.
