    Can the 1000T bracelet fit a 600t case?

    I've been looking through the threads and haven't seen any descriptions of the 1000T bracelet. Is it 20mm? will it fit on my 600T Divingstar case?
    As much as I like my original bracelet I don't trust the folded end links to fit again once I switch back from the rubber strap.
    I've always had trouble with Folded end links (or as I call them Hollow End Links or HEL for short!) once the get the least bit bent then never go back to the original shape and the fit loose and I wind up wearing a watch that Chimes!

    Thanks,

    Mark, I'll confirm later but I believe the answer is yes. Last night I put the 600T bracelet on the 1000T case and it fit perfectly. I can't see why the opposite wouldn't be true. I'll see how it fits when I get home.

    the folded links do seem to get a bit loose with time: I usually just bend them a bit and they fit like new, no rattles.
    Experiment a bit with them and they'll be fine.

    Like Pete says the 600T end links fit the 1000T but, the 1000T links don't fit the 600T perfectly. Oddly enough they are slightly low on the 600T even though the 1000T is a thicker watch. Go figure.

    Mark,

    I guess it doesn't pay to make assumptions in this game. Although the 600T bracelet fits the 1000T case just about perfectly, the same can not be said for the 1000T bracelet on the 600T case. Joe is absolutely correct. There is a gap because if the mismatch. The photo should make it clear.

    If you had a 600T and wanted the satin bracelet from a 1000T, would the 1000T bracelet work with the 600T end links?

    Yep. Perfectly. I just swapped them over and tried. No photo but fits like a charm.

    IIRC this would also be a good replacement set for vintage 300Ts? 1000 bracelet/600 endlinks. I have 2 USD models w/ IWW that will need bracelets on their return.

    As you can see from my signature, I own the 1000, 750 and 600Ts. I've measured all three bracelets using dial calipers and they are all virtually identical except for the end links. The 750 and 1000 have only a slight design difference on the clasp and of course the 600T has pin and collar versus the screwed links. As for those satin beads of rice, they no longer exist on my watches, thanks to Dremel. I think the 1000T bracelet is ideal for the vintages and you have the option of leaving the satin finish or polishing. If I ever get a vintage with a trashed bracelet I'll definitely contact Doxa and get the 1000 bracelet with 600 end links and polish those beads.
