Best Fitted Mesh Band For Your SKX! (Look alike Seiko 5 Sports)

Everyone’s talking about the new Seiko 5 Sports, AKA the new 007 model watches that are scheduled to release sometime next week.

Pictures are already available online showing the various color combos, watch bands, designs that will be available for purchase . There are certain models that are eye-catching and I’m particularly excited to check out the models from Street & Sense series.

Another series of the watches that are worth looking into are the “Suits Styles”. New factory mesh bracelets, as well as mesh designed rubber straps are used to pair with the various models in one of Seiko 5’s latest “Suits Styles” watches. While its common knowing that factory bracelets from Seiko are not one of their strengths, but its still worth looking into and to compare it with our very own mesh bands.

We’re often asked about our watch bands like why ours costs more than others? What makes Strapcode’s watch bands better than others? Why? Why? Why? The amount of time and dedication our R&D team put into creating new designs, and refining our products is what make our products stand out and differentiate from others. When comparing mesh bands for instance, , looks and feel can be deceiving. Different types of watch bands have different characteristics and appeal to ones tastes. When you buy a mesh band, there are things to look for that can tell the difference of quality and grade.

Twisted mesh weave is one indicator of a top quality mesh watch bracelet. Another is the alignment of the locking bar and clasp. When you’re trying to attach the mesh band on to your watch, and attempt to fasten the bracelet, the precision between the hooks and clasps should be able to fasten firmly, without the need to manual adjust it. Winghead Shark mesh bands ares often selected to be used on the SKX 007 and related larger case models. The non-tapered shark mesh bands are often picked for large wrist. On the other hand, for people with smaller wrist size, you can perhaps go for the tapered style mesh band which looks just as appealing as the non tapered Wingheaded mesh band.

At times, customers find it trouble some when trying to order a mesh band because they aren’t sure which size they should order. What better than to have an adjustable mesh band where you no longer have to worry about sizing the mesh band on your wrist. Not only that, the adjustable massy mesh bands are also available in black (PVD). The official date for the new Seiko 5 Sports are set to go on shelf on the 7th of September. Hopefully, our copies will arrive the same day so we can put our mesh bands on the test on the new Seiko 5 Sports watches.
