but couldnt swing the big bucks or didnt know if you would like one?
Here is an affordable type to test from our sales forum and Jake B.

I had planned on putting this on an inexpensive quartz military style watch but after seeing it
I felt it deserved something better.

The 316l Stainless Steel machine woven mesh is smooth except for a very few rough spots to the touch on the edges easily smoothed with a few strokes from a nail file.

The back of the bracelet is just as nicely finished as the front.

The bracelet is a nice thickness at 3mm for a dress watch but I would have preferred 4.

The mesh is quite flexible and fits my 6 1/2 inch nicely. Looks like it would adjust up another 3 inches.

The clasp uses a hook and sliding base for a perfect and quick easily adjustable fit.
I had one of these type bracelet clasps long ago and loved it. More suitable to dress than sports apllications though.

Bracelet is comfotable and easy to wear. 20mm untapered so it seems wider.

Mesh is not a high polish but a brushed finish would have been nicer IMHO. May have to experiment with
a brush pen.

Jake is a nice person to deal with and super fast shipping. Too bad I cant say the same thing about the Hong Kong Post
but still 10 days isnt too bad.

Looks good! My problem is i would want a real good one (omaga or one of the german made bracelets with a divers clasp) then after spending all that coin not like it! So i've always been on the fence about it! would'nt mind getting ahold of one that Joe from zinex (zixen) puts on his watches but most people dont part with them!

Well Max, I think it looks great and have also ordered one from Jake. It will give me the chance to see if I'm really a mesh guy. Then, if I feel I like the look, I may spring for a Omega bracelet for the Breitling one day. I think it looks awesome on the Junkers Bro!!! Ever Have A Hankering For A Mesh Bracelet 803574 Also, just to add Jake IS a great guy to deal with. He doesn't waste time shipping your purchase out. This will be my second purchase from him. Glad to have him here at the forum!

Nice.
Have to admit I've gone a little mesh crazy.
Find myself trying 'em on just about anything.
Even a FrankenMonster.

Yeah, why Omega? Doesn't the Breitling mesh (Super Ocean Heritage) fit your watch?

Seems I recall Trevor saying the Omega mesh was better and less expensive. Hopefully he'll chime in and correct me if I'm wrong.

the omega mesh is less but is limited for adjustments.for a larger wrist you can add extensions to it.The breitling mesh though has removable segments and fits all wrist sizes but it is expensive.I prefer the omega mesh.its thick but the chain mail links are smooth and don't snag hair.The uts mesh is also good.I've got 2 of those.
Joe sent me 2 24mm mesh bracelets for the heliox.now those are really good.then theres the mesh from Dwatch but those need to be ordered to fit your wrist.
