Brushed Contemporary Flat Link Bracelet for Black Bay 58
The Flat Link bracelet is one of Forstner's (or rather, its successor Jacoby Bender's) most iconic bracelet designs, having been officially made in the mid-20th century for some of Omega's most sought after vintage watches. Forstner brought back this style, faithfully recreating the style (quickly becoming one of Forstner's most popular products) for a number of different watches.
By popular request, Forstner also created a "Contemporary" version of the Flat Link, keeping the proportions and style of the original, but making the bracelet overall more substantial. With this version, Forstner introduces its first milled clasp with push button mechanism (maintaining the look of the original clasp). The links are also thicker and longer -- approximately 3mm thick and 6.5mm long vs. 2.5mm thick and 5mm long on the original version.
We think this "Contemporary" version is an out of the box stunner, and has the look and feel of a modern bracelet that could be supplied with the current Speedmaster and Seamaster line.
