I posted this same message on the Oris forum yesterday, but didn't get any responses. So I am opening it up to a larger audience in hopes of getting some suggestions.
First time to the Oris forum as I am considering a 43.5 Aquis purchase – the green version. It’s used and comes with the rubber strap. I like the rubber strap and am sure I would use it in the summer, at least. But I prefer bracelets and especially like the Aquis’ stainless steel bracelet. I can’t imagine owning this watch and not having the bracelet … or a good alternative.
Has anyone purchased a replacement OEM Oris Aquis bracelet or a decent alternative? Where? How much?
I’m not opposed to good aftermarket alternatives. I have a nice blue Seiko SBDC053 (yeah, Seiko naming stinks unless fans give them nicknames, like the Monster or Samurai) with a pretty nice Strapcode oyster bracelet specifically made for it, and it is perfect.
Any similar aftermarket bracelets or straps out there for the Aquis? Any nice alternative bands, straps or bracelets people have swapped onto their Aquis? Pictures please if you have them.
This is the watch and bracelet:
