I was originally trying to decide between a 556a or 856. My main concern was the size and not necessarily the price difference. I do prefer the tegimented steel of the 856 but don't really care about the capsule, etc. I think I've settled on the 856 but am now trying to figure out if I should go ahead and order the watch on strap or wait until they get the bracelet version in stock. For those of you that own the bracelet, is that how you wear your 856 or do you end up going with straps and natos? And would you have pics of it on something other than the bracelet?
In case anyones curious or starts making other recommendations, I have owned a 556i, 657, and 103 matte edition in the past. The only one I had a bracelet for was the 657. The bracelet wore much better than I expected but that watch was such a strap monster that I very rarely wore it on the bracelet.
