The Bell-Matic was the first Seiko that started my obsession. However, after owning many of these over the years, I was met with the frustration of never being able to find the right strap for it. Even the stainless bracelet that came with this model was made of folded metal and not very exciting. So, I decided to make one of my own. This is a solid-link, stainless steel bracelet that really looks great!
The bracelet tapers from 18mm to 16mm and has 5 removable links, and a couple holes in the buckle for micro-adjustments. The center links are polished and the rest are brushed. I had the end-pieces custom-made for a secure fit, and they lock into place. Comes with two 18mm spring bars. It fits up to an 8" wrist (more links are available here).
