Don't have a clue what the before looked like or what you were trying to accomplish but I think it looks nice.

I like the plongeur hands as well. What kind of watch is that?

i also was wondering what or why you were cutting - normally these bracelets are short anyway -certainly the Omega bracelets are , and generally need an extension for most reasonably sized wrists

I was cutting the mesh bracelet with a dremel tool. It was about 3" too long. Had to use a cutting disc to slice through each section of the links as I trimmed a row at a time. This watch used to have a leather strap. I don't think I'd do this again. Too much work.

3 inches !! thats an extraordinary amount of superfluous steel for any normal bracelet!! forgive me but you seem to have a fairly large wrist already - was the original bracelet tailored for a giant;-)

A row at a time? Wasn't it possible to just cut it across the links that would make it fit?

This is interesting. I passed on one of his mesh bracelets because I thought it would only fit an 8" wrist. Can I ask which of his models you bought? This is exactly the kind I'm looking for-the adjustable ones taper and I don't care for the look.
Also I love the SkyGuardian. It's one of my favorite Androids. Congrats on the combo!

Nice job. I have a mesh with finished ends and cut the clasp end on one side. But the unfinished end lug straps are for hidden lug watches and I hate seeing the springbars. The other day I had an idea maybe you might try and I'd change my mind. :)

I was doing a project and remembered I had black plastic shrink tubing for electrical work. The thinnest just might slide right on and be fine. Or a size up would need to be heated to fit. But That just might be a good look.

I can imagine the concentration, patience, and steady hand it took to work at for an hour. Really well done. I love great DIY projects like this. Thanks for sharing! :-!
