I currently have a PO2500 and have an 8500 bracelet fitted to it however the end links where it meets the case are quite a bit thicker and I'm wondering if it would be possible to fit end links from the 2500 bracelet to the 8500 bracelet?

Has anyone done this? Was any modification required or did they just fit?

I didn't think the 8500 bracelet fitted, you guys got shots of this, not seen it before? And Ausman, how did you get that one on without end links to start with, I thought it was a completely different size?

That pic is an 8500 isn't it. I meant how has he fitted an 8500 to a 2500 case without any other links. The 8500 bracelet doesn't fit the 2500

Yes, I thought that bezel wasn't right. Have you a face on shot?

Exactly, so how has he got his 8500 bracelet on the 2500. He said they're a bit thick, but I didn't think they would even go on there without different end links? Sure I tried once and it wouldn't go anywhere near it

I have both 8500 and 2500 and have put the 8500 bracelet on the 2500 no problems, the only issue was the end links sat about 1mm higher than the lugs on the Watch case

I like that. Looks good. What is the weight difference of the two, any ideas people?

Is there any way to source an grey 8500 bezel still? Looking for ceramic for my 2500

Don't know how I missed that one, I'll go find, thanks

Got it... why I was expecting to see the grey 8500 on the s/s model, no idea.
Is there much difference on the 8500 bezel, as the orange isn't ceramic is it? Colour wise, maybe brighter?

The bezel is stainless steel. The 8500 orange is a brighter shade than the 2500 and the bezel numerals are a bit bolder.

Hi

No it is my 2500 with 8500 bezel.

The 8500 end links don't fit but you can change them to the 2500 end links.
Bumping this old thread.

The 42mm 2500 PO has 952 end links which is attached to the rest of the bracelet with the pin and collar system


The 8500 end links are attached with a screw to the rest of the bracelet.

How does the 952 end link, which uses the pin and collar attach to the 8500 bracelet which uses screws ?
