    hadley roma bracelets are garbage

    So I bought a vostok amphibian a few weeks ago and I have heard that the bracelets that came on them were awful. I decided to buy another one while I was waiting for it to arrive, so I bought a 20mm hadley roma black pvd bracelet from watchprince.com for about 40 dollars. It arrived a week ago and I took it and put it in my closet until the amphibian arrived. Today I got the package from Russia, so I went to put the bracelet on. Let me tell you guys, this thing is complete unadulterated rubbish! I have never seen such a cheaply made piece of crap in my life. Wow. Anyway, I left the original on because in my opinion it is higher quality (which is pathetic). Too bad I'm out 40 bucks. Has anyone else had such a poor impression of hadley roma bracelets?

    I'm sorry to hear that but what were you expecting for $40 bracelet?

    Yeah Man I second that motion!
    I have never purchased a Stainless or PVD Bracelet from them but I have bought two Pilot style Hadley Roma Straps from Amazon, both of them
    were garbage. Flimsy and cheesy looking, funny thing is they charge big money for this stuff. I sent both of them back quick!

    Yeah, I used to work at a jewelry store that sold those things, I never had any issues with their leather straps, but those metal bracelets were horrible. Not a solid link on the darn thing.

    funny you posted this. I just got the same black pvd bracelet and it is indeed junk. It's cheap feeling and it's not even completely black between the links. I have it on my watch now and I cringe looking at it. I'm going to take it off as soon as I find another suitable bracelet.

    Straps not always, but you usually get what you pay for with a bracelet. Hope you find something that works better for you.

    Just kind of funny considering I just bought a super oyster bracelet from WJean on ebay for one of my Seikos for 55 dollars. This thing is gorgeous. All solid links (except the end). The quality of this one makes the Hadley Roma, which I paid only 15 dollars less for, even more despicable.
