Forstner Contemporary Flat Link Stainless Steel Watch Bracelet for Omega Speedmaster

Earn up to 925 Holben’s Rewards points on this purchase

The flat link bracelet is one of the most recognizable Omega bands of all time, having been provided with the Speedmaster and Seamaster when they were first released. After a long period during which the style was discontinued, Forstner faithfully recreated a vintage-inspired version of the bracelet, which quickly became one of its most popular products.

By popular request, Forstner now offers a contemporary version of the flat link,  retaining the proportions and style of the original while making the bracelet more substantial overall.  With this version, Forstner introduces its first milled clasp with pushbutton mechanism while maintaining the look of the original clasp. The links are also thicker and longer -- approximately 3mm thick and 6.5mm long, vs. 2.5mm and 5mm on the original version.

The Contemporary Flat Link is an out-of-the-box stunner, with the look and feel of a modern bracelet that could be supplied with the current Speedmaster and Seamaster lines. 

  • Solid 316L stainless steel, including solid steel curved end pieces.
  • Links measure 3mm thick and 6.5mm long.
  • Links are easily removable via a single-screw system. Screwdriver included for sizing.

  • 19mm end links have been reported to fit the Trilogy edition Seamaster and Speedmaster, though not as precisely as the cases mentioned above.
  • 19mm tapers from 19mm at the end pieces and widest link to 16mm at the clasp.
  • Pre-2021 20mm end links fit Omega Speedmaster Professional case until the introduction of the 2021 caliber 3861 version.
  • Post-2021 20mm end links fit the new 3861-caliber Speedmaster, the blue Snoopy, and the 50th anniversary Apollo 11 limited edition.

Q: Do you sell watch bands for women?
A: We do! Many of our short-length straps are the perfect size for women.

Q: Can you suggest a strap that looks amazing with my watch?
A: Unfortunately, because the range is so vast (and personal taste is subjective), we cannot advise regarding aesthetic suitability for specific models and styles of watches.

Q: I have an Apple watch. Will any of your straps work for me?
A: Sure! Our handy Apple watch band adapters accommodate most 22mm straps.

Q: Are spring bars available?
A: Yes, for each strap that is not already integrated with quick-release spring bars, we include one free pair of strong, seamless double-flange stainless steel bars.

Q: What strap size do I need?
A: To determine your size, use a metric ruler to measure the internal distance (in millimeters) between the lugs of your watch.

Q: My Bonetto Cinturini deployant strap is too long. Can you help?
A: Of course! See our Bonetto Cinturini sizing guide for cutting instructions.

Q: Do you offer international shipping?
A: Yes! Visit our Shipping & Returns page for more information.

Q: May I return my purchase?
A: Holben's Fine Watch Bands accepts returns of unworn, undamaged merchandise for refund or exchange within thirty days of purchase. Learn more on our Shipping & Returns page.

Need help with sizing?
