+1. I currently have six 6139-60XX models with the correct original bracelet and not one has flush endlinks, including one or two with the sizing stickers still on the clasp. The 6139-600X h-links seem to be a little better across the board, even if a little off... no clue why.

I have learned that it takes someone with skill to bend and file the metal into conformity with the lugs. I use the services of four different experienced jewlers and watchmakers, but only one of them, Carlos, has the magic touch.
Yes, with a bit of patience, this is the way to get a perfect fit...I've done this myself with good results!

Lets not call it a fake. it is only fake if the seller tries to deceive others and markets it as a legit original part. It is a well made reproduction bracelet of the original. Nothing different here than what they do for vintage cars and trucks. Modern parts are marketed as aftermarket reproduction.
