Description

This bracelet is not produced by Seiko, it is made by Miltat and is also sold on www.strapcode.com and taikonaut-time.com.

The Super Solid Oyster bracelet is one of the most popular bracelets. It has solid links and comes standard with a neutral double-lock clasp that is very strong and solid. It is one of the most used after market bracelets for the SKX007. This bracelet is made for the SEiko-Sports with the SKX007 shaped case and 20mm lugs, 40mm wide.

The (recently improved, “3D”) end pieces are massive pieces of steel, attached with thick push pins (with collars for removal) to the watch case. Lug width is 20mm, and because of that they are sold steel, only suitable for SRPE-Sports case with 20mm lugs (4R36-08L0 on the case back).

The links are also made of solid steel, attached with small screws, a small 14mm screwdriver is perfect for these screws. I advice to use some loc tite or something similar to keep the screws from unscrewing while you are wearing the watch.

Some models of the SRPE-Sports already have a solid Oyster. A very nice bracelet, with a few differences:

Seiko Miltat
Links Solid with split pens solid with screws
Thickness 3.3mm 3mm
clasp 18mm wide, 2 adjustment holes 18mm, options possible
Taper 22mm at the lugs, 20mm at the clasp 22mm at the lugs, 18mm at the clasp
eind piece folded steel, standard push pin massive steel, thick push pin
middle 11mm wide section 9mm wide section

The pictures show a matt middle row on the original bracelet, this is because I did not see the protective plastic on it.

Install tip:
First remove the push pins and press the end piece through the lugs a few times.
This removes some possible left over steel from drilling the holes in the lugs.

 

You can select a few types of clasp:
1. Neutral with 3 adjustment holes
2. V-clasp with 6 adjustment holes
3 Seiko with 4 adjustment holes (not for this 18mm clasp width)
4 Seiko with 4 adjustment holes and divers’ extension
5 Solid ratcheting, no adjustment holes but extendable
6 Seiko ratcheting, with 4 adjustment holes
