    Not sure I follow your question.

    If you can find a MBW bracelet those are excellent. Yuki bracelets are also very good. You can give your bracelet a Baby-oil bath. Or you can spend some money and buy a gen bracelet - nothing beats a gen.

    Yea, I asked that same question in the Rolex forum couple of weeks ago and got crickets. I think the clasp on the rep bracelet feels like a piece of tin foil (on the JF sub). The bracelet itself is fine though. No luck with Yuki BTW. Clasps are OOS and have been for a long time.

    The JKF cartel bracelets are the easiest to get for a reasonable price. If you will be using 2mm spring bars then get the WSO 580 endlinks from eBay and you have a functioning bracelet.

    MBW bracelets occasionally come up for sale by themselves on M2M but usually come on the older MBW 1680/5513 watches. They donít last long.

    Iíd suggest you use a Cartel one for now but keep your eyes open for one of the others when they come up for sale.

    I should explain: they are so good that they donít last long for sale. People snap them up in minutes.

    Properly looked after they can last as long as the gen bracelets. I have one on my MBW 1680 and love it!
