Looks fantastic! I hope to have mine of that style arrive in the next few days. I really do like the wrap around style of the links versus the the large clasp on the one I have now.

Thanks! The color really match the sport's space gray. I ordered a black one with the larger clasp, I figured I'd mix and match! I'll be selling my HOCO.

Nice! But how is the inside of the clasp. Does it recess into the inside of the band or does it poke into your wrist?

It lays flushed, don't even feel it there

You mentioned "larger clasp". How does that work, they come with different size clasps?
Would you mind posting a photo of the inside of the clasp area? I would really like to get a bracelet like that.

Oh....wait, that's the guy that won't ship to Canada. . I guess the hunt continues!

Here's a few photos of the one with the larger clasp

Here the last band I'll be getting for a while. It's another link band but this one has the links that wrap all the way down to the clasp.

I actually like this one better than the other link clone I posted about because it has the links that go all the way around. The links are what makes this band so nice, so the more the better!

This one was much easier to size than the other. It was done in about 90 seconds. A sim tool or a pin is all you really needs.

The gaps between the links on this one are much less apparent than the other clone I have which makes me happy. The inside of the clasp is exactly the same as my other so comfort is the same.

These are pretty abundant now on eBay so you can find one pretty easily. Price ranges from $65 to $100 depending on who you buy from.

Some pics ...

I'm liking the looks of that but I just can't imagine that clasp not being noticeable on the wrist. Does it not dig in?

It doesn't at all. I was skeptical, too. Even if I take another link out to make it almost too tight, I still don't feel it.

That first link looks nice. I don't see it in black, or a color that would match my space grey sport. I might contact the seller to inquire about it because I really like that one.

Did you hear back about whether they have a gray version?

I just sent an e-mail now. I'll let you know once I find out.
I hope so, as this looks like something I will buy. I like the fact that the clasp is much more flush with the underside of the bracelet.

Thanks! I have the 90% link clone and ordered the other one that looks like the original clasp, I have to say that that inside clasp does not feel bad at all, as a matter of fact I don't feel or see it at all once buckled, I just like to find a 100% clone like the one we are talking about

I might still buy the sort you have for the color. I'm going by word of mouth that the clasp does not feel bad.

It really doesn't, it is flush once closed, I think the photo is misleading because the clasp is shown against a flat band making it look like it sticks out on the ends, but once on it follows the curve of your wrist and it cannot be felt
