The flat link bracelet was, in our view, one of the most beautifully designed, and comfortable, bracelets ever offered by Omega. Its links were thin, so as to not overpower the watch with which it was paired. It was stretchy, so it remained comfortable throughout the day, despite temperature fluctuations. It was finished beautifully, with the polished outer and brushed inner links (a finish that was continued onto the clasp itself). And it had loads of rattly vintage charm. Forstner has made its own version of the flat link bracelet, keeping the beauty of the original but improving it for fit, convenience, and wearability.
Solid 316L stainless steel, including solid steel end piece (to provide a more flush fit to the case). Links can be removed conveniently via a single-screw system. In addition, Forstner has added a set of spring-loaded "stretchy" links behind the clasp--keeping with the vintage feel--to ensure that the bracelet will fit comfortably all day long, despite variations in temperature and weather.
- 19mm end links fit the First Omega in Space ("FOIS") case (including the CK2998 limited editions and Hodinkee 10th Anniversary limited edition). The 19mm end links have been reported to fit the Speedmaster 60th anniversary Trilogy edition, though not as precisely as the cases mentioned above.
- The pre-2021 20mm end links fit the Omega Speedmaster Professional case until the introduction of the 2021 caliber 3861 version. The post-2021 20mm end link fit the new 3861-caliber Speedmaster, the blue Snoopy, and the 50th anniversary Apollo 11 edition.
Bracelet tapers from 20mm at the end piece to 16mm at the clasp. Length is adjustable (via single screw system and micro-adjustment in clasp) from 120mm to 180mm (fits wrists ranging from approximately 6 to 8 inches). Screwdriver included for sizing.
Choice of polished outer/brushed inner links, or fully brushed.
Spring bars, screwdriver, one pair of end links.
