    Skindiver on bracelet/rubber thoughts?

    Any skindiver owners with the bracelet? Any reviews or thoughts? Does the vintage diver look odd on a intricate bracelet like that?
    I have mine on the rubber strap. Pretty nice imo. Love it on leather as well. But im a bracelet guy so i Will probably source a bracelet.
    Hey if anyone has one they dont use and want the rubber or just want to part with it let me know ;) haha

    I'm a huge fan of the bracelet and don't think it looks odd on it. It has a mesh-like aesthetic due to the small links and that matches the vintage style fairly well.

    I usually wear mine on an Isofrane though.

    To be honest, only reason I got the Skindiver is the bracelet. I hate bracelet; all my other watches are leather straps. However, Skindiver bracelet is by far the most comfortable and good looking one to date in my opinion.

    I love the bracelet. It was one of the selling points of the watch for me. But I have been thinking of trying out a isofrane or nato recently for a change.

    I hear from some reviews its nice but really light in comparison to the thicker watch. Not sure if i want to shell out 400 to source a new one

    While I tried for a day on a few straps:

    Here are a few Sailcloth straps I tried









    Except for those photos every day for two years it was on the bracelet which IMO looks the best and is ultra comfortable.







    I would only buy it on a bracelet and get a strap later if you really want one.

    If for some reason my bracelet became lost, I would pay the $400 for another one.
