I don't own any of the Seiko prince bracelets but the oyster from William is great.
Another great bracelet is the hammer sold by harold.

However, my preferred bracelet for the SKX series is the Seiko president bracelet.
22 - 18 mm tapering just feels better as the 22 - 20 mm.

Look through the 007/009 thread there are tons of pictures with people commenting on their bracelets
Seems most people that have the Super Oyster really like it. I wouldn't pay the amount the last two you show cost. Seems wjeans best is usually $69

i just purchased an "evo S" super oyster from Harold (yobokies) and I could not be happier, great fit and finish and Harold is a great guy.

Super Oyster II from wjean. Wearing it on my 009 right now as I type!

Comfortable. Solid Links fit lugs "just right." Comfortable. Easy resize with screws, not pins. Comfortable. Best aftermarket clasp. Comfortable.

I've got a skx007, and purchased the William Jean Super Oyster. Didn't quite size to my wrist very well (6.75") and IMO, it makes the watch look smaller than it actually is due to the taper toward the buckle not being as drastic as the jubilee. I think the Super Oyster is 22mm at the lug and 20 at the buckle. The jubilee is 22mm at the lug and 18mm at the buckle. I know it's JUST 2mm...but to me it makes a difference.

Just my 2 cents. Good luck!

There's a 22/18 taper super oyster from wjean as well. It's been commented upon here before (including a recent thread started by yours truly).
