Mesh bracelets seem to be cool, especially with Omega and Seiko. Anyone here own one and how do they like it?

I have a couple cheaper mesh bracelets I bought from WJean on eBay. One on my St. Moritz Superstorm, and another on my Citizen Eco-Zilla. Both are extremely comfortable, and add a cool look to the watches. Some people really don't like them, I personally think that they look awesome on many dive watches.

I had Omega mesh on my PO. Very comfortable, but not my style.

I love how the PO looks on mesh. To me that would be the only option (besides the occasional Isofrane swap-out).

I have a mesh bracelet that I have used on and off over the last few years. On the right watch they look great. I'm never had a problem with comfort. The one I have does not pinch or grab. I recommend you give one a try.

I like mesh braclets depending on the watch they are paired with. I do think they need to match the watch. Silver on silver, gold on gold, black on black etc. I have a few watches with mesh braclets they are pretty comfortable IMO.

Jurgen makes "Monster Mesh". From what I understand, it is fairly similar in size to the Omega.

I've tried both the loose Omega style mesh&a tighter weave mesh- think Skagen- and I much prefer the loose mesh for comfort like leather only cooler (wrist temp). The tight mesh looks like a solid band but is not nearly a comfortable to me. Here's a side thot-->(remember those spring loaded metal cuffs? :BE) yowza.

My fav is a Strap Code &is on my Spinnaker:

That is where a dremel comes in VERY handy.

Wjean has a "tightish" mesh (see pics above of my St. Moritz) that is fully adjustable. No links or cutting. Great for under $40.

Here's a Strapcode mesh on my Ecozilla. The buckle arrangement is something different and eliminates any sizing issues. It's very comfortable and goes good on the Ecozilla.

I looked at those when I bought mesh for my Eco-Zilla, but I actually decided early on that I didn't want any links or adjustments. I have 1 adjustment hole up and down on my deployment clasp and that's it after I had cut it to size. Fits me perfect in the center hole so I am happy.

That band does look sharp on yours.

I love it. I had never been a fan until I tried one and now I am hooked. I have two different variations on mine
Breitling mesh - links closer and more smooth to wear



Helson - more spaced and slightly rougher

Agree with OMI....I have the Breitling Superocean 46 on mesh. Super comfortable, the links are smooth and it doesn't pinch the hair off your wrist.

I haven't really thought about using a mesh bracelet, but those pairings are nice. I might have to look into it.

I have never been a big fan of them, I always figured I would never get one to fit right.
