Not usually a bracelet guy, but the Oceaneer feels right

Post by Lush » Sat Jun 09, 2012 4:18 pm

Most times I usually put the bracelet aside when I get a watch (there are exceptions) and the Oceaneer was the same. Having had the watch 3 yrs now and only once maybe twice early on did I mount the bracelet on it for short times. Last week I was bored with another rainy day here and changing up some straps on pieces I once again mounted the bracelet back on it.
Bam, right away it felt & looked right, and after a week I like how it rides even better. Another rainy day here in jet city so lots of time for pics.

I usually do the same with the bracelets as I prefer straps. My U1000 is the only watch I really love on the bracelet. The Korsbek looks pretty good though and it is nice to have some options. Did you ever come up with a solution for the caseback flaking?

Bad-ass PVD. Looks good on the bracelet.

Poul offered to send it in and take care of it on the house, what a great guy.:thumbsup: But I elected to just polish it out on my own. Looks just fine and affects the appearance none. I have had many pvd-dlc watches over the years and can`t think of one that didn`t have just a steel back on them.

Poul is top shelf. I've had a few Korsbek watches and think they are a for the most part a bracelet watch. Its a wristfull no doubt. The Hirsch strap worked well-but then again thats a heavy duty rubber strap. Great piece bud.

This is one watch where the five link bracelet fits the rest of the design of the watch.

That watch is a lot like the Seal in that it looks sweet on the five link AND it looks sweet on just about any cool looking strap.

It does ROCK on that bracelet. :headbang:

I've been wanting to put the links back on my Seal... it's coming soon after seeing this. :thumbsup:
