    Marine Original on Omega Mesh

    I know that Stowa offer their own mesh but has anyone tried the Omega Mesh on an Marine Original?

    I did a quick search but nothing popped up so wondered if it had been tried before or if it's a big no-no!

    Reason I ask, got the chance of a 22mm Omega Mesh and the MO is all I've got that I'd put it on

    Do it! Then show us how it looks.

    Seriosuly, the pics I have seen on the Stowa Mesh are so nice, I think the Omega mesh will look good also.

    It doesnt fit with the "heritage" of the watch, but it sure looks cool on the mesh anyway. i saw go for it, you can always change it back.

    Thanks for your thoughts... looking at just how utterly rubbish the £ is against all other currencies it actually makes the Omega and the Stowa mesh almost the same price.

    Was just interested if anyone had done it and I guess the answer is no (or at least no one on this forum perhaps).

    I think that the Omega mesh is way to heavy for the MO.
    The mesh has (for example) a very robust clasp, totaly not in the style with the MO.

    Also the Omega logo on the MO looks silly, IMHO!



    The Omega mesh isn't a dressy bracelet but more a (heavy) tool bracelet.



    Regards, Roel

    Indeed it is pretty robust, I do have a 24mm Omega Mesh hence know just how nice they are and thats what made me wonder if anyone had tried one on an MO.

    Ahaa, ok!

    Excuse my for my post. I thought that you didn't know the style of the mesh.

    Grtz, Roel

    I was not aware that the Omega was so much more "tool-ish". Interesting, and I agree it does not appear to be elegant enough to look right on the MO.

    I guess that's why no one seems to have tried.
