Can you provide me with a working link to see these DrunkArtStraps?
I would like to see them and maybe buy one. But I can't find where to do so.
Thanks

Hi no website or link.
You can see his straps on his Instagram page I guess. But not sure he takes orders at this time.

How WEIRD.
And there aren't any resellers of his products either it seems.
Oh well. I'm not going to open an instagram account.
Helm sells canvas straps which are probably pretty good too.

After loving the look and feel of wearing the SMP on Milanese mesh, I ordered a Staib Milanese bracelet direct from Staib in Germany. I have been wearing this configuration every second day for about a month and just recently watched No Time to Die. I was pleased that both the bracelet and film delivered how I had hoped and I wanted to share some comments as I promised I would.

The Excellent:
-the build quality and solid feel of this bracelet are truly impressive, it actually does the watch justice
-the diver clasp is also reassuringly solid
-there is no bulking from any overlapping bracelet on the bottom of the wrist in the clasp area, a potential issue with other Milanese bracelets
-the 3.5mm mesh perfectly balances heft and articulation/comfort, proportionately matches the case and lug thicknesses and still has clearance from the case
-the bracelet can be mounted easily with OEM spring bars, for that additional peace of mind
-the bracelet can be sized with removal of up to two, 2.5mm links on either side of the clasp, while the clasp provides an additional 2.5mm of micro adjust, allowing for clean adjustment without overlap
-it is sleek and sexy and the polished finish matches the shiny general finish of the watch (these also come in “satin”/brushed, but I read that the difference in the finishes is minor. I am curious about what the satin clasp looks like)
-Staib customer service is top notch and they can assist with selecting a bracelet and even sizing if you are confident about the measurements. I would recommend planning to do it yourself or at least being prepared to adjust it further yourself, to get it as right as possible


The slightly less than Excellent, but still just fine:

-the diver clasp does not have on the fly adjustment (dreaming, wish list, I know)
-the clasp and small links are polished and I have accepted that I will try to enjoy the “patina” which forms over time
-the bracelet pins are friction pins and the amount of friction can be significant and perhaps overdone. Adjusting took more concentration, patience and second guessing force than usual

Overall this is a stunning configuration and somehow almost rivals the comfort of the US1450 which I also wear on the SMP with a second set of SMP end links. If you like the Milanese look and feel, this is likely among the best options. I have no experience with the OEM NTTD bracelet, so I cannot compare to that at all, aside from the obvious price difference (4x?) and the OEM can have the overlap/clasp area thickness issue.

Have a great weekend and start to the New Year all.
