I would prefer a Nimo OEM as I had on my Polluce that I sold, but also am open to high end mesh. Any suggestions etc? And before anyone bashes me for suggesting non OEM , take a chill pill, its ok...I own enough Anonimos to not get kicked out of the club for a non OEM bracelet :)

Jeff been using an aftermarket bracelet on his Pam88 yesterday&today: I gave him the link last year. The seller don't have them now with curved ends except some 22mm.
Here's a strait end model: http://www.ebay.com/itm/24mm-SUPER-Engineer-Type-II-Solid-Stainless-Steel-Straight-End-Watch-Band-Push-/120894321047?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c25dcf197#ht_5167wt_912
But you could ask the seller: He certainly can find something out.

if you are going to go mesh,then go with a Staib...made in Germany,used by Jorge Schauer,and UTS...thick,well made in a variety of styles,and found at a variety of vendors,just google the name...below is their website....ThumbsUp02.gif

you can also check with Marc at Islandwatch...he is the N.A Distributor for Vollmer who also make a nice mesh as well as other style bracelets...if you don'y see what you like,pm Marc,and let him know what you are looking for,as he may be able to source a higher end Vollmer bracelet for you.

Eric, you're ok going mesh even if non-OEM.

William is right. He gave me the map to the mesh suppliers and all have been positive.

You just have to be careful of the gap between the edges of the mesh lug roll and the watch case. If the gap is too wide, it might not be a pretty sight.

In this case, experiment first with a cheaper mesh and if the gap is ok for you, go to the high end of the market and switch the mesh to your less expensive pieces. That's what I'd do.

Good Luck, amigo

so I was narrowed down to Jurgens and Staib, I just couldn't get past the odd look of where the end link is that tube, it looks slapped on as an afterthought on many watches. Then i looked at Omega mesh which doesn't have the end link tube and I love that look better as it looks less slapped on. Issue is I don't like that it doesn't have a flip lock clasp, it has a weird seat belt bucks clasp which worries me that it may not be as secure.

I ended up ordering a William Jean mesh as it has the same look as the omega pretty much but with a clasp that seems more secure to me with a flip lock. I have heard strong praise about William and his mesh so I gave it a try!!

The W.Jean mesh isn't flatten on it's surface as the Omega mesh.
That's why my next mesh will be a flatten model: I have a W.Jean who is great but I realized over time that I would prefer the flatten look...

i know what you mean, but the flat look from what I have seen is generally more blingy looking/polished. I love the flat look though. I would have just bought an omega one but I can't stand the idea of an Omega logo on a bracelet for another brand watch....dumb i know, but would drive me nuts
