I am curious what the thickest bracelets out there are. My thickest currently is the famous watchadoo.

It seems like some of the Fortis offerings (B-42 series) have some really thick links.

Looking for suggestions on THICK and HEAVY bracelets.

Don't leave me hanging like that! What are they? They look awesome, especially that first one with the allen head bolts. What metal is it made from, Ti? Amazing pics too!

My guess first one is a Formex. Second one, no clue.
Big good? If you have the wrists to pull it of, yes. On me? Will look like I slapped on some caterpilartracks.

if this sucker was titanium and had decent movement, i be so over it :)

The SW 200 in this beast so far is dang good (surprisingly so), as to the weight?? Personally i would not change a thing, as it is not noticable to me at all, I dont care if Timex or Apoguam made THIS watch, I love it, it is a tool dive watch, with a killer bezel action great build and quality, and for $750, for this beater, I'm as happy as a dog with two knobs..

Hope to have the Modded one back soon from Jack too.

:-d LMAO, Shane you crack me up mate! Is that a Delaurian original quote or what? What dog wouldn't be happy with two knobs? It would truly be the dogs bollox! :-d

This one on the Sector 1000M is pretty thick too. No wonder it doesn't feel as light as a Ti should. :)

also, out of your list, only Invicta makes the thickest bracelet. the subaqua series and shanes watch. number 2 would be the formex ds 2000.

Actually Sean the Subaqua bracelet is considerably thinner than the Leviathans bracelet, the SA III is 3mm and 5mm at the screw section, you know that bump on the bracelet that has the screws.




The original SA noma has 5mm thick links.





UTS is like 5mm so that is a substantial bracelet too.



Tag is thick at the head but tapers to the underside.



The Jorg Kubus is a serios bracelet heavier that a Nuns stash.

Shane, you seem to be the goto guy for big, beefy bracelets. I just measured and the Watchadoo is only 4mm thick, which is nothing compared to your specimens. It seems that 6mm is the ultimate, in your Leviathan Invicta, and 5mm seems about the largest before that beast came into the picture.

My next watch must have at least a 5mm bracelet. I'm hoping a Fortis B-42 meets those prerequisites, since I've had my eye on the MarineMaster with Luminous Dial. Anybody have one who can verify?

I just really want more "balance". My Sumo seems a bit extreme - a Large and Heavy watch on a 20mm wide bracelet that tapers to 18mm and only 3mm thick! (REALLY "top heavy")

Realistically 5mm is about it, the leviathan is extreme in all counts, what you could do is snag a beefy bracelet like a 22mm 24mm even a 26mm??? if that is the same width as the outer lugs ? on your watch, and custom fit it into the 20mm lug area, thus giving you a super wide bracelet.

Check out the bracelet on the Anonimo Professionalle. That is some thick steel - not sure how thick but serious weight. Sure someone out there has a pic.
