Mesh straps

After picking up a Breitling SOH2 and loving this mesh strap - I figured Id try them out on a couple others. Heres a couple pics for others curious how it looks on a Seamaster 300 and an Oris Divers 65:

Really starting to like the idea of a mesh strap (thinking of putting one on my jlc deep sea).
Is that from Breitling originally?

Only the Breitling that came with mesh, the others are with watch gecko mesh.

Love it. Think it would look good on an Explorer 39mm?

These bracelets are comfortable. I was told by one Belgian guy that he bought a non original mesh that is cheaper, but has same tactile feeling. Don't remember name of a website.

I think Strapcode.com sells aftermarket mesh, oyster and jubilee style bracelets

Looks great. I've been thinking about one for my Fifty Fathoms Bathyscaphe. Any ideas where to look? The FF is an odd size.

I love the Milanese bracelet on the Breitling. It looks great and is very comfortable and is one of the main reasons I purchased the Super Ocean Heritage II. It's also a nice alternative to the more common oyster bracelet. Those watches look great on the Milanese bracelet!

I just put this one made by Staib on my Speedy. Took a little for me to warm up to it, but I love it now.

Outside of my oyster bracelets, probably the most comfortable bracelet I have.

In my eyes it looks like a mis match, but that doesn't matter.
If you like it

There aren't many things I don't like the look of mesh on. I'm a big fan. Looks absolutely sick on that Oris 65!
