    A present for my Scuba Dude

    I took a gamble and pulled the trigger on a Shark Mesh Bracelet for my Vostok Ministry Scuba Dude hoping that the bracelet would not be too small for my 7.5 wrist, the Ministry case has very short lugs.
    Won the auction at the goodcheapman site, no other bidders, cost 28.52 with free shipping.
    The bracelet was shipped same day (Tuesday) from HK and dropped through my letter box here in the UK on Friday, three days later, fantastic service.

    The bracelet arrived set for maximum length, it only has about 5mm adjustment on the deployment, I removed the supplied pins and replaced them with some 22mm x 2.00mm Fat Bar Pins I got previously from the same source.

    With the tension rising I slipped the watch onto my wrist, tentatively closing the Diver Deployment with it's secondary safety catch and ........ success! a perfect fit.
    The bracelet is excellent quality and looks lovely on the Scuba Dude, I am well pleased I took the initial gamble.
    Time for a coffee before I take some pics.

    Here they are....

    Looks great! I'd love to do the same, but my wrist is 8". Hard to find a good bracelet in that range it seems.

    His two piece mesh straps would fit you, the 1.00mm mesh look the best of the two piece range in my opinion. LINK

    A certain German Watch Brand is selling a two piece mesh which is supposedly made in Germany for six times the price offered by goodcheapman, only difference as far as I can see is that they have had their motif impressed into the clasp and they only have a very small dia mesh.
