    MB bracelet?

    I was in the Bremont website today and noticed that you can now buy the MB series on a bracelet.

    Is this new? I donít recall ever seeing it before.

    Thoughts?

    I hadn't seen that before, but also don't see anything on their social accounts announcing it. Being honest, I'm not too crazy about the look. Feels like it doesn't match the watch itself, and without curved endlinks, it looks like an aftermarket bracelet, IMHO.

    With the knurled Aluminum case ring you have to have a bracelet that sits off the watch or it would damage the case. Pretty much the only way it can be done. Tudor has been shipping the Ranger with a bracelet that sits off the watch much more and IMO looks worse. So this is not nearly as bad IMO.

    Re: MB bracelet?

    Greetings,

    New to this forum, and just had a chance to try out the MBIII during "The English tour" that the brothers were on in the south-west of the USA. what samanator mentioned was what the sales guy used as sales point that you can better see the coloured ring. I kinda liked that explanation but realize now that may just be a convenient way of getting over that objection.

    I'd say that the MBII was meant to be worn on a leather strap or nato. Having said that, I don' think they did a terrible job with the end link I've noticed in other posts that the aluminum barrel of the case on the MBII tends to scratch and ding more easily than the rest of the case. My guess is s solid end link rubbing up against it would destroy it in a very short time.

    yeah I agree, looks sort of after-the-fact. Much prefer it on the leather or NATO. Maybe they got a lot of pressure to do a bracelet and felt this was a way to appease the masses!

    But, to the point of scratching the case barrel, they do other bracelets on other models, all with the same trip tick case.
