    A Question for EII Owners with the S/S Bracelet

    Okay, I am contemplating the S/S bracelet for the EII. Just wondering how it looks, feels and weighs? And how does the colour of the bracelet compare to the beadblasted look of the EII case?

    Thanks.

    i had seen previously on this forum someone who had the bracelet beadblasted by Kobold so that it matched the case--looked nice, but i like mixing up the straps--rubber, leather

    That is correct, the bracelet is beadblasted at Kobold, so it will match the case perfectly. I am in the process of getting some funds together to make that my next purchase.

    Re: A Question for EII Owners with the S/S Bracelet

    I have the EII with the SS, I like it , looks good, it seems to match okay, slight difference from the case, not noticable . The only thing I see is when you open or close the clasp, or scuff ...it sort of shines the bracelet back to SS (sort of like slightly rubbing off the bead blast), But I wear mine everyday, already scratched the bezel, hit a metal rack, but mine is an everyday work watch. I would only wear the EII with a SS bracelet, it looks good and the Kolbold bracelet is comfortable, I like how it wears and fits, and I don't think an after market ss braclet will do or come close

    James,

    I own a Soarway Diver that I had completely bead blasted (minus bezel) and it looks GREAT. I believe the SS bracelet is identical to the one you would use for the E II. To be frank, I like the bead blasted look much better, and ever since I had the watch bead blasted I have received a lot of positive comments from many different individuals - some of whom never noticed this same watch prior to the bead blasting. I have not noticed any scuffs of scratches develop on the bracelet, and I wear this particular watch more than any of the others in my collection. I think you will be happy with the results if you decide to have the bracelet bead blasted.

    Okay, thanks guys. I just wanted some independant confirmation before I went ahead with it. And I agree - from the pics, it looks awesome.

    Re: A Question for EII Owners with the S/S Bracelet

    I got the first one of the EII'S w/ the bracelet, because I guess nobody else thought about it or asked the question. I asked them if I could get the bracelet in addition to the regular setup because I always like to have that option if possible. The case and bracelet match perfectly even though they blasted the bracelet in Pittsburgh.

    I think it looks great on the bracelet and that is the way I usually wear it.
