Panomaticlunar. Strap to bracelet?

My Panomaticlunar is on a strap. I would like to put a bracelet on the watch. Are they interchangeable?
Has anyone else done this and can you comment on the looks and feel?
Im seeing them with two different types of bracelets but I prefer the one on the current Glasshutte website.

Yes, you can change it to the bracelet, without any issue.
The version you have, which you can tell by the dial, will either be a pre-2015 original or the current version.
I believe the current version increased the case size slightly but, more importantly, means only one style of bracelet will fit.
The PCLs of the current bracelet doesn’t really work for me, on this particular design – there’s a certain charm (not old fashioned or such) that the original bracelet exudes, which the revision's doesn’t. It’s more in keeping with the dial style, and makes it less like it’s trying too hard to be modern/trendy.

Look up for Jocke’s threads. He often has his current PML on bracelet. I don’t have the bracelet but it is worth noting that it also has a clever micro adjustment feature that it quite convenient to maintain best fit at all times.

Not very many bracelets around for GO.
I found only one for sale at $2,000. Not sure if it is the correct one for you.
That would give me pause, at that price range. Not sure if that was what you were thinking.

I could not sleep... so I looked it up for you!

If you scroll down you will see the photographs of the bracelet.

Wow. Great shots in that link. Thankyou for finding that for me.
Funny enough, his pictures got me interested in the watch and I ended up buying one. Now those bracelet shots have pretty much convinced me to get the bracelet.
I contacted an AD and they can order me one.
I better check on the mfg date of my watch to confirm the new bracelets will fit.

Jocke probably gets a cut from GO as many of us have been lured into the brand thanks to his great photographs!

If you end up buying it please post up pictures.

I contacted the Swatch Group as they are apparently the US supplier. They are very helpful.
The cost for the bracelet was about $2150.
I need to think about this a little.

Thanks for the information. It looks like a nicely made bracelet but at 2k I understand your hesitation. You can get a nice Nomos for that money...

The bracelet looks very similar to a bracelet I had on a GO Sport Evo big date.
It is SUPER comfortable and the micro-adjustment with alteration super easily made via pushing on the logo puts almost every other manufacturer's bracelets to shame.

{Too bad the watch had the most issues I've had with a watch, and some of the most ham-handed service I've experienced that it turned me completely off ALL Swatch group watches, and the watch was traded towards an AP Diver}
