    I suppose it revolves around what you mean by "best." If you mean most solid, heavy, sturdy, etc., then yes, the bracelet on the Debaufre Ocean 1 is very good. In fact the only downside I've discerned about the Ocean 1 bracelet is its lack of a diver's extension.

    Now if you mean "best" as in most closely resembling the Oyster bracelet on a Rolex Sub, then my vote currently goes to the Alpha. No it is not made of 904 stainless steel like the Rolex (and it is nowhere near as sturdy as Debaufre's) but it is styled directly after the Rolex bracelet down to the flip out diver's extension and stamped/signed clasp.

    What do others think is a good bracelet when it comes to Sub homages?

    Also, no one has yet mentioned the Nettuno or Tridente from Marcello C. Anyone have experience with these models?

    These ant pictures kill me. You should probably post a disclaimer like, "No Humans were harmed in the making of this photograph." Well done, man.

    I meant solid feeling and non-clanky. I guess I'll have to find an used ocean 1 one of these days.

    :thanks It's one of my favorites on the Bond NATO. And I almost sold it(!) because it wasn't getting any wrist time on the stock bracelet. The NATO completely transformed the watch in my opinion.

    If you qualify best as low priced and sterile, then the Manbushijie is hard to beat.

    Now that is just awesome. Way to re-create THE classic Sub shot. You are Shipman. Mid-Shipman.

    I think this Hammy is pretty good, and not a direct rip:

    Not my pic - from here: http://b-get.cc/images/gn/brand/HAMI...64515133_1.jpg

    Full sapphire front glass, solid bracelet, and slightly unique face give the Rollie look, with a nice original twist.
