Update on my new 4R36 Black Monster. Well have had he watch for a couple of days now, and it is running at impressive +4 seconds a day, when placed crown up at night.

I was interested in how easy it would be to change out the bracelet. The bracelet has solid links, including the end link which fits in on the 20mm lugs, but widens out to the 22mm links. With the drilled lug holes this watch changed out faster then if it was a leather strap.

Most other end links I have encountered on bracelets were separate pieces or very hard to take off or put back on. This one was a breeze. The lug push pins on this watch are the Seiko Fatty ones, so if you want to put on other straps or bracelets, you will probably need another set of normal sized ones. I did, so this is the end result of me throwing on a Hadley Roma mesh bracelet. I like this on mesh so much, I may invest in another Staib mesh, which is a little thicker and heavy duty.

What do you guys think?

Definitely better. Makes the watch a little more versatile IMO. I did that to my Glycine Combat Sub and I've gotten compliments with it.

Think it looks amazing Chazman ! :clapping-hands-abov Watches like this have such exceptional designs with the bezel/case, and also dials. That you almost need an ultra cool bracelet to balance things out. Not that the stock bracelets, and rubber straps aren't nice, but something new like a mesh really works great !!! Nice job ! Congrats once again here ! :thumb:

Nice Monster no matter what you put it on. If you like the mesh then go for it. I prefer the bracelet myself.

My BM with 4R36 running +6 per day.
That's with the crystal lying downwards on my end table.
4R36 seems to gain less in this position. But I'm gonna
experiment with watch lying on case back also
