    What Stainless Steel Bracelet

    I am looking for a stainless steel bracelet to fit a Ocean7 LM 5. I know that Ocean7 has a mesh bracelet but I was looking for a different type and one that will fit the "curve" of the case or close to it. Any suggestions?

    That is the hard part, because the end link's dimensions are dependent on the watch:

    --the width has to match the lug width. OK, that one's easy.
    --the curvature is based on the case diameter. That's a little trickier.
    --the length depends on the distance from the case to the holes for the spring bar on the lugs. This is the hard part, and it's why most aftermarket bracelets don't try, at least that I've seen.

    And then, the bracelet side of the end link has to mate with the bracelet.

    If I don't worry about the curved end link, do I just go with any 22mm end link width band?

    Yes. At that point, the bracelet mounts into the lugs like any 2-piece strap, so if you want a 22/20 that should work fine. The only question in my mind relates to the adjustability of a tapering bracelet, but I suppose the taper would be in the first link or two, and the rest would be the same width (and therefore potentially removable).

    Going with straight end links will give you more options as matching aftermarket curved end links to an OEM case can be tricky.

    Some bracelets taper down 1-2mm's, others do not, so just a matter of personal preference.
