Is that a Rolex presidents bracelet or an aftermarket? Did Rolex make pesidents in stainless? Looks like mine from Stapcode for my Seiko but with that endlink configuration more like an Uncle Seiko. Either way, looks sharp!

Does yours have replacement lumes done in a service and what do you think about that as a dealer told me they shrink with time? Again, a lovely watch you have.

The bracelet is from Uncle Seiko (for SKX013) and endlinks are Rolex 580. The setup is pretty comfortable.

I got flamed for it on another site because it looked "cheap", but I don't see what's the issue as people use nato straps all the time. I love me some nato straps, I'm just using that as an analogy.
