oagaspar, Who makes that mesh? Nice looking, but bet it weighs quite a lot.

Apache,
"1. It has to be titanium
2. It has to have straight end pieces with a gap between the case"

Its been hard to find both 1 and 2, hasn't it? I was wondering how the Trasers would fit and look on the vortex, they have a couple of titanium bracelets that they sell separately for the classic ($110)and the commander ($65), but don't care for the link design on the commander.

Since I recently acquired a boat anchor 2824 auto, (Stowa prodiver) I would like to keep the Vortex a featherweight. It may never wear a bracelet. heh.

Hello guys,

got my Vortex a few weeks ago and it hasn't been of my wrist ever since.

I would be interested in a good bracelet, provided they will not be too expensive. I can live with the leather strap though.

Cheers,

Michiel

If you want the gap-less looks. The next best is the Original James Bond strap with PVD hardware: Sincerely Anders

Count me in for a bracelet too, providing it has the same finish and is not too pricey. Anders has good taste-titanium would be nice, but I could live with SS.

I should receive my Benarus bead blasted mesh in a few days...Halvis here's the link to the bead blasted mesh;

 

http://www.benaruswatches.com/custom/index.php



.....but previously found a thread where a member place his SMG  bracelet on his Vortex….and man did "It Look Good!!!!"....

I immediately went on the sales board’s and did a search for one and the lowest price SMG ti bracelet was selling for $400.00 bucks.

If I had the extra coin….Boy would I be tempted (only because the Vortex is a keeper and ain't going no where cept on my wrist). I just don’t have that expendable income at the moment….bummer!!!!

 

It's all about timing ain't it.........: (



Lance

 

BTW, since I’m a heavy sweater (OK, perspirer’er (?)…LOL), I can get by using a strap during the cooler winter months here in AZ. But as soon as summer hits….I gotta go with a bracelet!!!

 

So, I guess.....I'm in if Mr Anders will come up with a "matching" bracelet for the Vortex as well....thumbsup.gif

Lance, if you perspire a lot, try a rubber strap that's just a bit looser on the wrist. You can also try out a rubber rally or Big 3. The holes on the strap allow more air in/out.ThumbsUp02.gif.

Another alternative is a James Bond nato or plain gray or plain black nato. A skunk zulu would also be good for the color of the Vortex case and dial. The light strap is perfect for summer making the watch feel even more wearable.

Thanks for the heads up on the straps!!!  I guess when I used the rubber strap during the summer, I may have had it, (as you've suggested)...on too tight.  In addition to the strap was the solid type without holes or openings on the sides to allow it to breath.

 

Thanks again and have a great day!!!!....or is it night where your at....LOL

Lance

Thanks for posting this photo of your bracelet….I personally like the 5 link (?) style bracelet myself….ThumbsUp02.gif

It seems, your photo skills are about on par as mine…LOL OK, Ok, just kidding....LOL

But, how close is the color of the metal to the ti’s on the Vortex???

I just got the mesh in the mail....and it's not too bad weight wise.  I don't have a scale, but I think it's wieghs just about as much as Ted Su's Dive Buckle...LOL

Color wise it's a shade lighter then the ti, but IMO it looks good and will definately do the trick.

Well at least till I secure the contract in CA.  Then I may bite the bullet and spring for a used (no way new...) SMG ti bracelet.

Good Luck and if you try out the Traser bracelet, please keep us in the loop and let us know how it went!!!!....ThumbsUp02.gif
