    Deep Blue PU Bracelet - Noisy, new buckle

    I have a black Deep Blue Pro Aqua 1500 watch which I put on this black DB PU bracelet.

    Two things -
    1- The bracelet is noisy, it squeaks when I move my wrist. What can I do to silence it?
    2- The SS buckle on the PU bracelet is made of very soft metal it seems, and scratches real easy. Are there replacement buckles? I've emailed DB 3 times, they don't even respond (hint for anyone buying from DB!).

    I like the PU bracelet, but these two issues have me looking elsewhere. I have three bracelets for it; the original bracelet I removed brand new, the DB shark mesh, and this PU bracelet. I also have the DB rubber (stiffer than I hoped for).

    Thanks for any suggestions.

    Maybe tighten it up a little?

    Poor machine tolerances or poor assembly could be contributing to the issue.

    Might try mixing a little powdered graphite with rubbing alcohol and spray it down.

    When the alcohol evaporates, the graphite remains behind in the nooks and crannies of the bracelet and does not leave a residue.

    Thanks! I'll have to think of that next time. I gave it a little WD40 and wiped it clean, and that completely silenced it for now.
