    What's a good mesh bracelet?

    I recently bought an Bulova Snorkel with a fine Accutron II movement. It came with a mesh bracelet that's pretty uncomfortable, because it has a solid link section that sticks far out, also due to a rather fat clasp. I am shopping for a more comfortable solution, but I want to have it still be a mesh. What I have seen out there so far:

    1. Non-adjustable or small-adjustment mini box-clamps.
    2. Adjustable mesh with holes, looks like traditional leather but more bulky.
    3. Tension-hold clamps, infinitely adjustable, but don't look very hardy

    I am looking for the most comfortable, but also adjustable ones that hold up the best. What are my options?

    I am sorry for lousy descriptions, as I don't know the proper terminology.

    I spent the money and picked up a Staib mesh for mine. They look really good on the Bulova and are high quality mesh.

    Agree with Streetboss. Get a Staib. They make great mesh bracelets.

    Echoing what others have said. Staib mesh is top quality. Purchased mine from ebay. Here it is on my Orient Producer 24mm

    With mesh, I always get the thick ("shark") non adjustable kind. It comes longer than I need, and I cut it down to size using a simple pair of diagonal cutters. It looks super clean without those clunky removable links, and it's perfectly customized to my wrist!

    Looking forward to the review! I'm deciding between Staib and Vollmer at the moment

    I'd like to try your suggestion. Do you have a recommended source for the non-adjustable mesh? Thanks.

    Nah, I just get whatever is cheap on ebay. I think there miiight be varying levels of quality out there, but I don't have a good way of telling which is which beforehand. But if nothing else, I've always been satisfied so far--even the cheapest ones I've bought have been quite pleasing to wear.
