Has anyone tried an aftermarket bracelet or strap on the Viperfish...

The NFW bracelet does not have half-links so one extra link in is a bit too loose, one out is a bit too tight...

I don't own one but have seen in person.
Problem is with that thick case and lug space , it might look really odd on a regular strap.
Ill check google images too see if I can find pics though.
You could probably get the rubber from G.Fox though.

I looked at it again and those lug holes are right at end.
Putting aftermarket on it you would have a massive gap.
I think your best bet would be getting the OEM rubber .

I really don't like straps that much but I LOVE this watch, I really don't wanna sell it cause I can't get it to fit but I just can't seem to get the RIGHT fit...sigh.

^^ Alan been there with that before.
Had same issues with Deep Blue Sea Diver.
No half links and only 3 micros.
One out too tight, one back in too loose.
the viperfish being so heavy too you need that perfect fit.

The bracelet has the small adjustments in the wetsuit extension you can take advantage of. I have both the bracelet and the rubber strap. Try the rubber strap because its not expensive.

Also, try the NFW Facebook page for lots more photos. You can ask them if anyone else has experience with leather on the Viperfish. Be sure to post your findings here!

I have found that with my Viperfish that other watch bands or bracelets would not work because of the watch being top heavy. Only OEM bracelet or rubber band work, I have to say that I have not tried the worlds supply of bands or bracelets...

If NFW has sold a large amount of these and this is a common complaint maybe they could be persuaded to manufacturer some half links for their bracelets. Have you asked?

Yeah I asked George Directly, no half links...

As much as I love the watch itself, not getting a good fit is enough to make me sell it :(

Easy to get someone to make a strap to fill it in
Could be an idea for a friend of mine
