So I suspect I'm not the only person who would love to purchase a well built, fitted end link brushed Super Oyster link bracelet?

Ive reached out to a supplier with a good reputation and he would consider putting an order together if there is enough demand?
Ive started this thread with his blessing to allow people to subscribe with their interest and preferences should this go forward.

Would you be interested and what type of clasp ?
i.e. wet suit extension or cheaper simple clasp with lock?

I am neither the manufacturer or the supplier.
This thread is just so that people can express interest/ preferances with out high jacking another thread.


I personally would love a super oyster link bracelet with quality tight fitted solid end links but NO pin striping.
A wetsuit extension with its added weight may help to balance out the head..... micro adjustability is key so id like three or 4 holes for pin adjustment.

super oyster link bracelet

quality tight fitted solid end links

Brushed but NO pin striping

I could live with polished sides to match some of the bling on the case

No wetsuit extension needed as long as the links were sufficiently heavy to balance the head

Taper to match OEM bracelet is good, people can swap clasp if desired

At least 2 half links per side

3 or 4 holes for pin adjustment

Oyster links should not be too big

Single side Screwed or pin/collar is fine


Darn you Mathew!!!!!!!!

I'm all for a MM300 Super Oyster, thanks for starting the thread Matthew.

Let's hope we have an overwhelming response with the desired result.

I'm in, but I must have a ratcheting type clasp, if the stock one would fit the new bracelet that would be fine with me, I love the MM300 ratcheting clasp, though from previous posts I seem to be in the minority.

I just had to get a new bracelet for my Sumo. It had what I thought was the Marinemaster bracelet and clasp on it and the clasp broke and the bracelet was severely worn. It has been my daily for 5-7 years now. Anyway I ordered the Marinemaster bracelet wi the divers extension and the solid end links didn't fit the Sumo. Had to order a new Sumo bracelet and fit it with the Marinemaster clasp and it turns out that is exactly what was on it before.

Said all that to say this, I have dive watches, I'm a diver, I want heavy duty, heavy weight bracelets with ratcheting divers extension clasps on them. I have yet to find a clasp I like as much as the one on the Marinemaster and the Orient 300m saturation diver.

So yeah, if you get one made I'd be in for one or more for spares.

That would be great. Count me in. But then I would have to repurchase a mm300. But that would be a good dilemma.

Count me in for sure.

As for the clasp, 18mm is the way to go on this one, imo. The bracelet should have a little bit of taper and that will allow the use of many different clasps including the stock ratcheting clasp.

I'm probably in the minority but I think a jubilee style would also look great on the mm300. It works for the 007.

+1 and make sure the taper is compatible with the original MM300 clasp, so it can be swapped. Nothing beats the ratcheting clasp if you're a diver, as others have said.

I could accept polished sides too, a bit of bling to fit the case bling.

The suggestion that you came up with the idea after partaking of an illegal substance seems a little harsh. I seem be one of the minority who think the OEM bracelet is acceptable but still registered my "slightly interested" status.

This. But I'd prefer:

1) Single-side screwed links
2) Solid double flip-lock diver clasp
3) Mostly brushed finish with polished sides

So it seem that after years of people claiming there was no aftermarket MM300 fitted end link bracelet bracelet option, Harold ( yobokies) has released (end of 2015) a hollow end link Micro style chisel bracelet and there is a viable work around for an end mill variation.
Im guessing people will explore those options first and that the "need' for a oyster/ solid end link version is lower than I thought.
As such I suspect this project won't have the "minimum order size" to continue.

So I will continue to wear mine on rubber and I will wait to see the consensus option on the current purchasable options.
