Re: Fenix 6 (Solar?) &amp; Tactical Garmin Instinct
Chinese titanium bracelet.
Great construction. Great quality!
Quick fit springs are strong and their claws are large. Much better than my previous LFDAS titanium bracelet used on my 5X (26mm) and my Instinct (22mm).
Spring bars adjustment.
Easy to remove links with a little pin.
I have adjust my bracelet in 2 minutes.
So now on the scale...
Instead of 72grammes with the silicon band
Now it is 103 grammes once adjusted.
I have checked also with a magnet.
It is totally inert.
I would need to grind a removed link to check if the sparks are green white.
Someone else has done it with my old 50 dollars Chinese titanium band and it was titanium sparks!
The compass is working fine.
When it could be jammed by stainless steel.
Titanium is a-magnetic.
I have never been disappointed with Chinese titanium band but once. The culprit was the seller, selling stainless steel for titanium.
But for all my Chinese titanium bracelets, I have never been disappointed. This one is no exception.
Now I see LFDAS has doubled the price of their new models 128 dollars... They have smelled a good marker. But you can find their older model with the butterfly clasp for 50 dollars on Amazon.
This one is even better. You can find it for around 70 dollars. Mine cost me 57 dollars and came directly from China with free shipping.
So it was 3 weeks long. Cheaper but 3 weeks of waiting.
But really the quality is outstanding.
There is no noise or any "squicking". The satin finish is beautiful and even.
I wanted a non coated bracelet to suit my Silver titanium version.
In case of scratches it is very easy to erase them with my jeweler pads bought on ebay.
I have been able to keep my Tissot titanium watches pristine.
This bracelet will be no exception.
In less than a minute all scratches are simply erased if you go in the same direction as the original satin finish.
Anyway. It gives a very classy look to my Fenix for a fraction (a quarter) of the Garmin OEM bracelet.
More pictures in the daylight tomorrow.
