    Watchadoo bracelet on a Vintage Sub?

    Been wondering if anyone here has tried this combo. It might work pretty well, but I don't ever recall seeing it. Anyone?
    Regards, T Bone.

    Most of the Watchadoos I have seen have straight endlinks. Do any have curved to fit the Sub case??
    Best Regards,

    Nope, AFAIK, they are all straight (then again so are most straps). That's always been my problem with Watchadoos, the straight ends. But for some reason, I think it might just work on a Sub.

    Watchadoo is working on a new style with curved end links; I'm waiting to get a prototype from them; I'll post about it when it comes!

    Well that is great news! Surprising what one can find out when we ask . And I was just about to accept their second chance offer for one (might anyway).

    They are nice bracelets. Scottie has one on his Orangia that he has posted pics. It is quite heavy and solid. I think it seems well-made. Especially for the price............
    Best Regards,

    I guess this is a stupid question, but what is a watchadoo? I tried to educate myself and kept coming up with ebay listings from watchadoo, so I gave up and decided proclaim my ignorance.

    LH,

    Here is a pic of the watchadoo sandblasted 22mm bracelet on the Orangia that Jason mentioned. I agree with Jason in that it is a very solid well-built bracelet. I am considering possibly buying a 20mm polished for my 250 sharky.
    Note the straight end-links.........curved would be a nice option.

    hmm. curved end links? Great idea, I wonder...

    if they will make a range of curves for each lug size, to fit a 40mm diameter case, a 42, a 44.... They make 18, 20, 22 and 24 mm size bracelets.
    Or will they make just one size curvature per size bracelet?
    I have a few in different sizes and finishes, they are great.

    Your search is correct, Watchadoo is the Australian [email protected] seller of these “lumpy bracelets”. I fitted one to a Seiko SBBN007 “Tuna Can” and it worked very well with the straight end links because the lugs are mostly covered by the shroud.
