1964 vintage Seikomatic on "Omega" style open mesh bracelet...

I have a small collection of 1964 Seikomatics, including this rather nice vintage Seikomatic Weekdater 6218-8970. I only use these Seikomatics very occasionally, for formal business meetings where a diver would be out of place, or for special family occasions, such as weddings. I have my other Seikomatics on leather straps, but have been looking for a bracelet which complements this particular watch (my favorite Seikomatic), makes a statement and at the same is appropriate for formal occasions.


Well, my quest is over, with the new 19mm "shark" mesh which I picked up from SCWF member and supplier wjean (http://myworld.ebay.com/wjean28/. For those who havent seen the earlier review, I also have my Citizen Nighthawk on the same mesh, although in 22mm (http://www.thewatchsite.com/index.php/topic,2475.0.html), and the effect is IMHO equally stunning!
