    The Alpinist on an Angus Jubilee bracelet from Strapcode.com

    I am really impressed with the quality of the bracelet - all solid links, very well made and a nice, secure lock mechanism too.

    The bracelet came very well packaged and covered in protective film, which was reassuring. It has a good weight to it and the fit and finish is very impressive. I also like that it has 6 micro adjustment holes, which has meant I didn't need to remove any links.

    I'm really pleased at how it changes the appearance of the Alpinist, giving it a much more expensive, formal look.

    For the money, I highly recommend it.

      What was the damage on the bracelet?

        It was circa £75, which I feel is pretty reasonable considering the quality. It's certainly no lightweight and the clasp has a really positive, solid action.

            Either Angus, jubilee, or bracelet!?

              Put "Jubilee" and "Bracelet" together in the same sentence, ask 100 WIS to preface these words and you will (99% of the time) come up with a certain Swiss watch manufacturer.

              Not Angus............

                    Thanks to Chris, I got my SARB017 a couple of weeks ago. I swapped out the strap for a decent bracelet I had and it’s a great everyday for work watch.
                    I love it, Happy Days

                      To paraphrase myself....There's something familiar about that bracelet...

                      Looking good, DeepSub - wear it in good health!
