Okay so after having tried mounting my U2 on the SINN rubber strap, found that the big deployment clasp was a little over-whelming for my 6.5" wrist; due to a lower lug loose spring bar fit, mounting other brand leather straps was irritating; so i went all out and bought myself a SINN stainless steel bracelet for my U2 and wow, the packaging was better than what SINN provides for the watch IMO.
It was a breeze to re-size, the screw system is great, removed 3 links and the bracelet was a perfect fit; far more comfortable then my Omega SMP300 bracelet, they should make micro adjustment holes compulsory! BUT i do have some questions about my bracelet:
1. It is really light, doesn't feel at all like it's stainless steel; it's lighter even than my Omega SMP300 bracelet and my Seiko SCC017 solar chrono diver bracelet? But overall still very nicely machines and finished IMO
2. First issue i have is the first link that connects to the solid end link. One side is really tight with little "play" while the other side's first link is "looser" and has more "play", is this normal? (See Picture A, the circled link is the one i am talking about)
3. Second issue i have is that the solid end links are "shorter" by a fraction then the lugs (See Picture B), is this normal? Usually i would have thought that the end link would sit nicely flush?
Reason i am asking here is, my AD doesn't have any U2 or U1 on display that's on bracelet; heck they don't even have any bracelets for the U1 and U2 in stock at their service centre for SINN here.
So guys is my bracelet normal or ?
