    Recommend stainless steel bracelet for Sinn 240 st

    I am looking for a decent stainless steel bracelet for my Sinn 240 st. I purchased mine with a leather band but would like to interchange it with a bracelet. Any recommendation would be greatly appreciated.

    I should mention the lug width is 22mm.

    I'm going through the same process looking for a bracelet for my Sinn 142 (vintage from the 80's). The current model 140/240 bracelet looks like it would fit BUT it's $410 USD... Will be following this thread with interest and will post back if I come up with anything myself.

    Thanks for responding Darwin. I have been looking at Ebay, strapcode, wjean, among others but still deciding which type and how much to spend. When I do I will post and let you know.

    I followed up on this with WatchBuys - they sell the replacement Sinn 240 bracelet - which is a match for the case of my 142 - for $300 USD. I *might* go for this as a replacement for the very short original NSA bracelet that I have for it. I have bigger fish to fry at the moment, though, as the 142 has a power reserve of about 20 hours so will need servicing soon. That'll have to be the financial priority for now. FWIW, if you're looking for something to swap the 240 onto as a change from the leather, I put my 142 on a faux Isofrane on a whim and it turned out to be a fantastic option (so much so that I am seriously considering sourcing an orange Isofrane and skipping the Sinn bracelet until I can source links for the original):

    I love how it makes the orange hands on my 142 "pop". Pictures do not do the combo justice...

    Well... I lucked out and await delivery of 8 or 9 links for the original NSA bracelet on my Sinn 142. If they match my bracelet, I'm in business!

    BTW the matching modern bracelet for this watch is from the 240 and is $300 from WatchBuys. I don't think that they have them in stock yet, but will soon.

    Honestly there's nothing better than the stock bracelet. Here's my 142 D1 on one.

    Outside of that I'd say pick something you like and have it bead blasted to match. That's the biggest issue since most bracelets come polished or brushed.

    That's a good call. The orange hands pop and make the watch as a whole a lot sportier.

    Re: Recommend stainless steel bracelet for Sinn 240 st

    I tend to agree with you here. $300 makes it a little easier to swallow, albeit still a lot of money, for me at least. But I can't find a bracelet to match and the thought of having to send it to get bead blasted is just too much trouble. I will keep an eye out and order it when Watchbuys has it in stock. Love your 142. Appreciate the follow up Darwin.

    The 240 bracelet is awesome and much easier to size than the 142 bracelet. It's well worth the $300.

    Doh! I did not need to read that... I had just managed to convince myself to skip it and save the $300. I will likely pick one up eventually. The NSA links haven't arrived yet and the head needs to go off for a servicing so it will be a while, but I may wind up with the 240 bracelet anyway. You will have my wife to answer to if I do!
