    How do you like the bracelet? Adds lot of weight? Comfort?

    I'm really enjoying the bracelet. It's really nicely finished, beautiful and comfortable. The endlink release system is really convenient. The weight seems good; has substance but not overly hefty. I favor bracelets in general though, and usually don't take much note of bracelet weight. The clasp is beautiful too, and I enjoy the easy half link extensions.

    One side effect I've noticed, and it may be a glitch with my watch, if I wear the bracelet with slack and shake the watch around on my wrist every once in awhile, the watch starts to gain extra seconds. This isn't something I experienced when a watch is tighter and/or lighter on a strap. I'm wondering if the True Second movement by nature is a bit prone to timing deviation due to shock or rigorous movement.

    Other notes about this bracelet: It is a French manufactured accessory, not a JLC Swiss manufacture product, much like the straps are known to be from Camille Fournier and others. I don't know who the French manufacturer of this bracelet is. And while the finish, look, and quality is great, the smooth fitment of parts is definitely a shortcoming in my experience.
    -Most do, but not all the links move fluidly at the joints as they should (they don't squeak, but it's as if they could use a little lubrication).
    -The release lever under the endlink protrudes a bit and slightly interferes with the free movement of the link next to it.
    -Most notable is that closing the clasp is very stiff. There is no smoothing, grooves, or angling to facilitate the locking mechanism sliding into place effortlessly. Very secure though.
    -Micro adjustment is also a bit stiff to deploy, but not too bad.
    -The end links DO fit into the case well, though one side on mine does have a minor amount of detectable wiggle. They do succeed in not marring the brushed finish on the case between the lugs, which is a relief.

    Last note, removable links are a very secure but just a basic pin and tube system.

    Over all, it is a very quality looking and finished functional product. Looks great, wears well, and I'm enjoying it. It does not look or feel cheap, but, the "fit" part of fit and finish definitely has issues.

    Not sure how I feel about that. Isn't the retail price for the bracelet $1800. For that I'd expect perfection throughout.

    On a different note can anyone confirm the hands and indices are made of white gold?
