Beads of Rice for the (19mm) FOIS Speedmaster
If you love your 19mm Speedmaster reissue, you will want to treat yourself to this vintage style Beads of Rice. While I enjoy my other offerings for this watch, I think this is my new favorite. It just compliments the watch so well and infuses it with that vintage vibe we all love. It is a heavy, stainless steel bracelet with standard (hollow) end-links. You won't be disappointed!
What is included: One bracelet, one pair of end-links, one pair of 1.8mm spring bars.
[Because these take standard spring bars and the 20mm version takes the 2.5 diver ones, the end-links are not interchangeable]

Pressure Clasp: A couple of guys mentioned that they love the vintage pressure clasp, but wish it had a bit more "snap" when securing it. You can adjust the tension by slightly moving the small tab on the inside of the clasp. Moving it toward the hinge (away from the bracelet) very slightly will make it harder to close and create the desired effect. Again, a tiny adjustment with needle-nose pliers and check, repeating if needed. (See last picture).
