|NOT produced by Seiko but by Miltat, you can also buy them at strapcode.com en taikonaut-time.com. It is called Super-J Louis on those sites.|
|This beautiful bracelet is an alternative for the Seiko Jubilee. One of the main issues I have with the Seiko Jubilee is the clasp: you cannot change it and you have to open it with your nail. Also the “feel” of the bracelet, it has folded middle parts of the links and hollow end pieces, which makes it feel light and a bit cheap (but wears comfortable). It rattles a bit which contributes to the feeling I have with the Seiko Jubilee.
The Solid Jubilee bracelet has solid end pieces and solid middle parts. The ways the bracelet is attached to the end pieces is different (picture) so the lug-to-lug width is in fact a bit wider. The links are attached to eachother with small screws, a small screwdriver 1.4mm, is what you need to remove a screw. There are many clasp-options, even a Seiko clasp with 4 adjustment holes and a divers’ extension.
|It needs a clasp of 18mm wide. It tapers from 22mm at the lugs to 18mm at the clasp. This bracelet has been made for the Seiko SRPD-Sports watch case with 22mm lugs (4R36-07G0, 4R36-08E0, 4R36-08Z0), the end pieces (solid steel) do not fit on a different watch case. It comes with thick push pins, with shoulders so they can be removed with ease. The watch case also has drilled through lugs, so that makes it even easier.|
|Tip for installation:
Go through the lugs with the end pieces without push pins.
This removes possible steel particles around the holes for the push pins.
