This is preferably for those who have or had both bracelets. Which of the two is most comfortable? I like a heavier watch so a more solid bracelet would be preferred.

If you like heavy, the super oyster is much heavier and more substantial. I have a super oyster on my SKX031 and a president on my skx007, just for a change up. I like the 3-d effect of the president bracelet, sets it apart from the sea of oysters out there.

The finish on the super oyster is excellent. no sharp edges, excellent and consistent very finely brushed finish.

On an 007, with it's round markers, I find that a flat and slab sided super oyster looks good, but not great. the rounder President is definitely the better looking bracelet in this application. That said, the president bracelet has hollow center links, which make it much lighter. it's up to you to decide if the weight difference is important to you or not.

A third option which you might not have considered is one of Yobokie's new Anvil Bracelets, which are solid and heavy, but share some of the lumpy roundness of a president. Here is my 007 on an Anvil:


and here is a review with a lot more pics that I recently wrote about the bracelet:

The president looks GREAT on the SKX007, although it's a bit flimsy compared to the super oyster. I love the comfort and the look, though!

Thanks Gabe for posting your pic. Nice review as well. I have a super oyster on my 007 but will soon be going to the Anvil. Looks great! :-!

I've had my SXK173 on both the President and Super Oyster with Harolds solid end links. I really think the 007/173 looks great on the President, but I prefer the weight of the Super Oyster.

Greetings Watchuseekers,

I'm looking for a beater after I regrettably sold my Monster.

Anyone knows if this SKX007 case and president has been refinished? (brushed?)

Is it the original President that comes with the watch? I've seen the "J" version on ebay with the President but I can' tell from the pictures what type of finish it has...

I wonder who took this picture :think: perhaps I could ask him directly.

many thanks! :-!
