Know what you mean about metal bracelets. Not my favorite either. Back in the greedy Nineties seemed like everyone (think Vampires on Wall Street) who had 2 nickels to rub together wore a Rolex with a steel and gold bracelet.
Guess I just discovered shark mesh bracelets and never considered them before. And, you are right about one looking good on a Orient Amphibia 710, comfort aside. Also recently discovered Perlon straps and think they may be another option for a Scuba Dude.
Yup... those Nineties... brrrr.
The Baikonur (150 case) came home with its original mesh shark... and it looked good.. but...in the end I changed it. Maybe one day I'll try it again... (first pic from the internet)
I still haven't tried Perlon... they look nice. As for comfort, I find rubber-silicone extremely comfortable! Or nylon!
