Hello All,

I only came across this site recently after purchasing an orange monster DSC_2198.JPG DSC_2199 (1).JPG DSC_2200.JPG DSC_2201.JPG .

Have attached some pictures for your viewing pleasure :)

I have but one question for you aficianados:

I'm looking to get an original bracelet for this watch and am looking at the one from skywatches.com - I don't think it comes with spring bars. Do I need these or can I use the ones that have come with the rubber bracelet??

Thanks in advance!

The bars you have will work perfectly. Nice watch!

Not a bad idea, the OM stock bracelet is probably the nicest I've ever owned in a sub-$200 watch, it's definitely worth trying. Never heard of that website you mentioned though, have you made sure it's legit with decent customer reviews?

I thought "why not?"
Will have an alternative look and in my opinion a better looking one.

Re website, I found it on this forum! Looks like a few members have purchased successfully from it so I'm going to give it a go...

The bracelet is a must-have in my opinion. Only two gripes with it: the pin/collar sizing system and the noticeable 'step down' that is produced when a sizing link is remove. That said, it is very impressive stock offering. It's on my OM 90% of the time!

The pins in your strap will be fine in the bracelet. Don't forget to post some pics when you get it fitted.

Sure, they'll be fine. They do not compromise the quality of the bracelet at all. They just make it unnecessarily difficult to resize the bracelet on your own, that's all. Screw pins would have been better.

My Monster says hello. Here you can see how the original bracelet fits perfect between the lugs. The bracelet is very sturdy and it has some heft to it.

That watchadoo bracelet does look pretty awesome. Mine is usually on mesh. I had to use smaller spring bars for it, but I like how it looks. Kept the fat spring bars for when ever I switch to a nato.

I am not a big metal band guy. With that said the Watchadoo Anvil is probably one of the few I would buy for this watch. I currently have my OM on an ostrich band and it looks nice.

I had it also on a nice leather ZULU. Here is a pic for reference:

It now has this band on it. I switch them up every day for the most part.

I got the same combo but went with a Maratac Mil Nato which gives it a great look as well.

I like that Bulova. I think I saw that pop up recently on Amazon. Is it relatively new?

Congrats on your OM! I usually prefer mine on a NATO, but as others have said the stock bracelet is worth getting, it's always nice to have options when it comes to straps. Enjoy and welcome. :)

Thanks all, have placed the order with skywatches and status is dispatched from Singapore so hope to have the watch soon.
I used a tissot bracelet sizing pic print to measure my wrist which came out at 17.5cm, I'm going to have to wait for the bracelet to arrive I guess before working out whether I need to resize or not but have my eye on a couple of cheap resizing kits if needed. I haven't a clue as to how to do this but remember there was a vid of sorts on youtube showing how its done!
Will post pics of course so watch this space

All your straps look ace, I'm really in love with this watch i just keep looking at it even though i know what time it is!

One more thing I heard there is there a cm or two adjustability in the clasp pins?? Is this true?

The clasp should have 3-4 micro adjustment holes and a diver extension. Personally I don't like this simple kind of divers extension because it is unusable for daily wearing.
