Bracelet arrived today, I couldn’t be happier with it. I love the look of the blue face with the vintage oak leather but I’m equally impressed with the bracelet.

Quick release would’ve been nice, but the bracelet matches the watch so well, I’m glad I bit the bullet. I love the sleek profile of the watch despite its 41mm size.
Very nice. Congrats! Looks fantastic. :clap:

I've have the new style bracelet sitting in the basket and just can't make my mind up whether to go for it or not.

I don't know if it will be enough for me to wear the C65 vintage diver more often or if the lack of date means it's time for it to go.

Have you received your quick release bracelet? If so I'd love to see some side by side comparison photo if you had the spare time to do it Image

Arrived last week but only managed to take some quick comparison shots now.


Overall, not that much of the departure as what everyone might be thinking. (QR is fitted with the watch.

The most dramatic change is on the buckle.(QR one on the top ad look more polished Have a bigger and flatter release button.)

Looks a decent fit @hsukirk with the slightly wider centre links looking fine (as they are no longer polished and therefore don't stand out as much as before).

Thanks for posting the photos Image

The clasp looks a massive upgrade compared to the older type, much more refined and the wider links suit it more.

I might buy one anyway to see how I get on with it and if it doesn't suit maybe could sell it to DavecUK.

However his negotiation skills are next level and he would prob have me giving him money along with it to take it Image

Buckle is def a much better upgrade imo. Just looks a bit more cleaner and polished.
