My biggest issue with this purchase is the origin of Manufacture, I was under the impression this bracelet was made in the USA, one of the reasons I bought it and imported it. It is not made in America.
Secondly, the taper of the links is not right. Poor manufacturing, the angles are all wrong. One side has the right taper and other doesn't, it is all very inconsistent and poor quality.
Thirdly, thought the links were removable via screws. Nope! it's the dreaded pins.
Fourth, the clasp although fine is an aesthetic rip-off of a pre-ceramic Rolex bracelet, that's fine but it also doesn't latch on with ease, the link where the clasp is closest to has very thin bars which make the area flip-flop around preventing the hook to latch on precisely.
The Positives -
It looks great on my Zodiac Sea-Wolf.
The Endlink integration, it is uncanny how good it is. Blind luck I guess but, this is good news for Zodiac fans.
Overall, it is not an extremely refined product but, for the price paid. I just wish they were more transparent about the location of Manufacture.
This is a fantastic band for the price. And to clearly answer a often asked question, this band fits the Seiko SARB017 with no alteration. Very satisfied.
I really love the band. Just put it on my Tissot Vidodate. Nice change from the leather one.
Great looking watch band and quality material. But good look adjusting the band to fit. The pins will not come out, no matter what watch tool you use or how hard you use it.
