    Questions about mesh bracelets for prodivers

    I am interested in purchasing a mesh bracelet for my prodiver. I have noticed that there are a few on the market. I am looking for one that is 3mm or thicker. Can mesh owners give me there opinions about the mesh bracelet you may have bought. The omega proplof mesh looks good but it is rather pricey and the clasp looks unforgiving with little to no expansion room. The other 2 that i have seen the major differences are in the clasp. Thanks in advance:thanks

    I'd recommend the OEM Prodiver/Seatime bracelet. It's great.

    I second that!

    The prodiver bracelet is one of the most comfortable and bullet-proof bracelets on the market. It fits with the design of the watch very well. The solid lugs contribute to the design and functionality to a "T". Anything else just looks not quite right to me.

    As a prodiver owner I can agree that the bracelet for the prodiver is the vest look.

    But if I were to go mesh you have to go omega, it is the only mesh without a goofy solid end bar. I know there is a pic of a prodiver on a omega mesh here somewhere but I don't know where. I think just search prodiver mesh should bring up the pics of it. As far as expansion just get the expansion pieces if you need the mesh to be bigger.

    Two thoughts on that from me.

    1) The original Prodiver bracelet design is greatly flawed with regard to surface treatment. Blasted bracelet vs. brushed watch body. For me personally unforgivable lack of attention to detail and reason, why Prodiver always looks ten times better on rubber. If both parts would be blasted, or both brushed, it would be one of the best combos on the market, no question about that. IMHO.

    2) Prodiver on mesh is all altogether sick idea and it looks ghastly. IMHO.

    hi, the bracelet on my prodivers are both brushed not blasted only the sides of the case are blasted. and you could always just brush the sides of the case to match the bracelet

    So I should buy expensive watch and then brush the case? You must be surely joking. Not to mention, that it is not "just brush" to make it look like 1000 EUR watch.

    So you have also upper surface of the watch body, next to the bracelet, visible on both pictures here, brushed? I have never seen such a Prodivers. All Prodivers I have seen have had two different surfaces next to each other. And that was very ugly to my eyes.

    no i wasn't suggesting you brush the watch, it comes that way from stowa, if you note in the pics the top of the case under the bezel is brushed as are the lugs and the bracelet, the only part of the stowa prodiver that is bead blasted is the side of the case. i simply said if the blasted sides bother you 5 seconds with a satin finish wheel will solve that. and yeah its that easy to do and gives a perfect professional look.

    a brushed satin finish is on many many expensive watches.

    Are You saying, that these places are brushed and not bead blasted? I don't think so.

    yep thats exactly what i'm saying. do you have a prodiver or have you seen one in person or just on the net? because that top surface is brushed not blasted.
