Replacement bracelet for the Orient M-Force?

Post by Guest on Mon Apr 01, 2013 5:40 pm

For $283 on Amazon, the Orient M-Force is pretty much unbeatable for the price - sapphire crystal and hand-winding, no less. Anyhow, I keep hearing about how crappy the bracelet is so am looking at options. Any recommendations for ~$100 or less? The width is 24mm.

Thanks.

I was just looking at my old review of this watch, jonny, and I believe the lug-space is actually 23mm. I found the bracelet so appallingly awful (and prone to failure--the pins and collars often didn't hold) I put mine on a Panatime rubber strap, which worked OK.

Well it seems that's how they keep the price down, for ~$300 seems like a steal for a watch like that; as far as I can tell, the case and movement is comparable to the Revolver which I believe retailed for ~$500.

Any sense how the Super Engineer bracelets are? Here's one:

It's worth a shot I suppose, jonny. I don't think the M-Force was as good quality as the Revolver, however.
