It’s not quite a Twist-O-Flex (your arm hairs will thank you) and it’s no solid link Oyster, but somewhere in between sits this perfect replica Omega Constellation’s bracelet. It has rivets, fitted end links, and a look all its own. This is one of the more intriguing bracelets to come through the shop in months.
Before toolless micro-adjust, brands took a different approach to the shrinking and swelling of a wrist throughout a long day of watch wearing – stretch. From a few links down by the clasp on Swiss made replica Omega UK “flat links” to full stretch throughout, like this Constellation and a bunch of early Oysters from Rolex as well, this was the easiest answer to the problem of precise fit in the 1950s and 60s.
The result is a purely vintage feel on the wrist. I’ve always been drawn to the amount of force needed to get these bracelets to stretch; you can’t really do it by accident. The stretch is there when you need it but the AAA quality fake Omega is never going to fall off your wrist.
If you’ve been tuning into our drops for a while, you should remember this white gold high quality replica Omega Connie; it has been available for a while. And even though it doesn’t have the name recognition of a Day-Date, much of the allure of this piece is in the metal. Feeling the springs in this stretch bracelet, the heft of a white gold super clone watch, and the sharp edges of this case, that’s where the charm is, here. The Swiss movement fake watches with period stretch bracelets are some of the most tactile-necessary pieces in the vintage category – you really have to experience them.
