Default Alpinist looking good on Uncle Seiko bracelet

Endlinks original to watch, but bracelet an Uncle Seiko for 6139 chronohgraph.

Original bracelet has nice finish but the lack of a taper leaves an unsexy profile.

Yep I agree the Uncle Seiko looks great on that watch.

That's the non-tapered U.S. H-Link that just doesn't look quite right on a Pogue due to the soft rounded edges to the links, but man it sure works great on the Alpinist.

Thanks man. H-Link does have a slight taper though, almost 2mm from top to bottom.

I modified Eastech Endlinks, paired them with a Uncle Seiko Tapered H-Link (designed for a 6138 Jumbo) and installed on my 6309-7049 and was pleased with the results.

Possibilities are only limited by ones imagination.

Nice Work and I agree Only Imagination and Not allowing The NORNAL to interfere with Imagination. A Place for Both imo OEM or what has taken its place. and Imaginations that Others find Attractive. Nice when we open up possibilities I admire all of you that are able to MAKE Parts. Russell
