As you know I purchased an SKX009 for $107 from ewatches on one of those amazing multi-coupon deals before Christmas Super Oyster for the 009 Icon_santa Have worn it on a Red NATO from David as my daily Holiday wearer but an generally not a NATO kinda guy.

So, I ordered a Super Oyster from William Jean and it finally arrived from Canada Super Oyster for the 009 Icon_rolleyes

Like it a lot. Screws for the links. 4 hole Seiko deployant. Thought I'd need an extra link, nearly always do, but it fits my 8in wrist with room to spare on the standard set of links Super Oyster for the 009 Icon_cheers

Sprung for the 4 hole deployant over the standard 2 holer because I wanted more control on the fit that the extra holes provide AND the 4 holer is a bit longer. It was a hard decision to make because of the added cost ($3 US) but I bit the bullet and splurged. Glad I did.

looks great Doc. I was waiting for this thread. I believe the Super Oyster also has solid end links if I'm not mistaken?

That's the setup I would want in a 009. Although, I'm more of a Coke fan than pepsi, Wonder if Noah has any 009 bezels in Coke?

Yes, they do have a Type II bracelet that has some upgrades over the Type I including solid end links. They are nearly double the price and I decided to go with the Type I. Got it, the 4 hole deployant, extra screw link, extra spring bars, and shipped for $39. The base price for the Type II is $59 and with the extras it would have been $72 or thereabouts. These endlinks seem fine to me. I can always order solid ones from the Swede if I decide to in the future and they run $25 or so from what I recall.

That looks ten times better than that cheezy NATO Doc. Not sure how you will be able to deploy to your black-op's missions with the oyster though. Super Oyster for the 009 Icon_razz

Mike,

Thanks. I've found that wearing a NATO for a week is good enough to keep the testosterone surging for a few months! I'm now in the market for all black clothing......

Excellent Doc..This bracelet adds yet another layer to your
watches personality. I like how you can just change a bracelet
or strap and give a watch a totally new theme or feel ! Super Oyster for the 009 Icon_biggrin
Great Job !!!..Congrats !

Fantastic combo. Did the endlinks fit properly "out of the box" or did they require some "tweeking" to get a good fit?

They fit perfectly out of the box. They are hollow, as noted above, but are fine for this watch IMHO. If I decide I want solid end links then I can always order them for $25 or so.

If I get an Anvil in the future then it will have solid end links. But for now, the Type I Super Oyster is a great bargain at $39.

I got the 4 hole Seiko clasp for it and it makes it much nicer. My only Monster clasp is in use right now, and besides it's bead blasted.
