Sinn + Mesh Bracelet

When I saw a couple of mesh bracelets on sale in the Seiko Club Singapore forum, I grabbed them immediately without giving much consideration on which watch to match. (Sorry guys if you are eyeing on it, I have a weak spot for mesh.)

Now they are here, damn… I can’t find a suitable 20mm lug watch to match, so anyway, another reason is I want to do something for so long yet I couldn’t find the right bracelet for it.

I have bought a Sinn buckle for quite a while without really fully utilising it, now finally with spare time to boot, this combo came out.

Sinn Mesh Bracelet. The mesh is a straight 22mm, fit the buckle perfectly.

I have to find a watch with a shorter lug to lug distance as I have adjusted the mesh to the shortest possible length. The Caribbean fit the bill !

Omega Mesh vs Hong Kong Mesh

Spent the morning take photos of the Omega mesh, damn it’s a good bracelet.

When I handled badern’s mesh the first time, I didn’t have another mesh to compare to, so I thought all mesh are made equal.

So now I have both the Hong Kong adjustable mesh and Omega mesh side by side, hope the series of photos will help you decide if it’s worth shelling the extra bucks for it.

Side by Side comparison

Here you can see the Omega mesh on the left is better finished and smoother to the feel.
