Maybe going a bit off topic here but...

Is the STAIB as reflexive or “blingy” as Vostok mesh?
I’m asking because to be able to wear a mesh I took the shine with the green side of the dish sponge.

I like the idea of the STAIB for my incoming moonglow, but would like to have your opinion of how shiny it is.
Can’t decide from the pictures

Agreed, very definitely polished and shiny.

Moreover, for the quality and price of it, it would be sacrilege to get your pan scourer and brush the finish.

Staib do offer brushed bracelets in some styles too, I would think preferable to employing the scourer!

Indeed, I did it to a Vostok, not in my mind to do it to a bracelet in this price point.

Thank you for the comments, I guess a mesh is not in the near future for me.

I wound up purchasing a low priced EACHE mesh bracelet for $20 off Amazon. I'm shocked at how nice this thing is at this price point. I bought it as just sort of a trial to see if I liked the look of mesh with this watch, but I like it so much I may not bother picking up a Staib. The twin trigger clasp is real solid and sturdy. Love that it uses quick release spring bars. And the size and thickness are just fine for my wrist. It doesn't look as premium as the Staib but for the price this is a pretty darn nice mesh bracelet. I'll give it a few weeks and then decide if I want to move up to a Staib bracelet or just stick with this. My only complaint really is this is a finer weave mesh vs the Staib. I prefer the look of the links on the Staib model.

Does look good and I prefer the clasp to the Staib which is butterfly and a bit overdone IMHO.

FWIW, another what seems to be a nice bracelet (it gets good reviews) at a competitive price point is the Watch Gecko Merriot, also with QR. I am tempted, but will probably go Staib for my C1 if I do go for a mesh.

Yes I saw that one and was real close to ordering. I got all the way to the final screen and saw the delivery fee which was in the $22 range to the U.S. After that I looked at the one on Amazon and they are nearly identical. Figured I'd try the $20 w/ free shipping before trying the ~$60 Watch Gecko version. They are really REALLY similar. Same clasp too. I'd be curious to see live shots of both next to each other to see if there is any difference in the weave pattern maybe. The Watchgecko has great reviews. People seem very happy with them.

I have the staib bracelet posted (not any of these) which comes at £260. so the one on offer from CW seems to be a great bargain.

Well I couldn't resist and went ahead and purchased a Staib mesh bracelet. The cheap Amazon one convinced me to go premium. Looks and feels great. As expected I was right in between sizes as I removed all four links from this 170 mm bracelet to get it sized correctly. Fits perfectly, but if I lose a chunk of weight (which I could certainly stand to do) it may be too long. But for now I couldn't be happier. Really nice quality product.

The slightly bigger weave looks better with the watch than the Amazon bracelet. That’s a great add to the Worldglow. Enjoy!

Thanks buddy. Yeah I tend to agree, gives it a more premium look as well.
