    Thumbs Up BOR Upgrade For My Vintage Sharkhunter

    I have been really close to pulling the trigger on a Yobokies rice bead bracelet. The images you guys keep posting have made for some serious eye candy!
    While asking a few questions to a fellow member, I noticed NCMOTO was selling a leftover bracelet from a contemporary SUB. I quickly remembered what the Dr. had said about fitting the 20mm bracelets on vintage models. I went in the direction of factory equipment…..I know, some will say that I should have gone Yobokies.

    Ken aka NCMOTO, thanks so much for making this painless! He was gracious enough to send me the bracelet for a test ride without collateral or down payment! I truly appreciate the gesture, and the trust! Rest assured, your bracelet has found a good home. I already refinished the bracelet, and put it on. It was a bit too easy….I didn’t have to add or remove links, the fit was already perfect!

    The last pic really illustrates how the newer endpieces fit the old cases. The fit is actually better than what I would have thought. There is a little play, but after closely looking at images of vintage SUBS with their original bracelets, the play is not all that different, many of the vintage SUBs show little gaps between the case and endpiece. These newer endpieces are definitely shorter in height, but I think they still look good on the thicker, older cases. Regardless, my vintage Sharkhunter is extremely comfortable to wear!

    Ken, thanks again!

    Is that bracelet from a 1200T? I have a 750T bracelet and I need to file down the endlinks to see how it will fit with a vintage searambler.

    It sure is!

    I was surprised to see that the bracelet is the same as the one on my 600T-Graph....21mm endpieces mated to a 20mm bracelet.
