Default Request to bracelet fiends: want to change the 18mm bracelet on vintage Seiko 5

I love this watch. It's a 1968 6119-6000 in great condition and keeping good time.
I think if I'd like the bracelet more then I'd wear the watch more, not that the present bracelet is rubbish ugly.
A bracelet is what I want, because an all silver look is great and because I mostly have leather and nylon on my other watches.
What I like and will look good on her is [size=1em]an open link light bracelet.
To give you a clue of what I mean by open link:

A light easy going look.
Mesh or heavy metal won't do.
I searched for the "beads of rice" style, although they may be a bit overloading (?) and besides, if I'm correct they are expensive (is that true?).
I have zero knowledge on where and how to find a good inexpensively priced open link stainless steel bracelet that will be of good quality. So instead of starting from scratch, how about some pointers guys?
I don't need brand names. European and UK suppliers are good too, and actually preferable due to shipping costs.
Appreciate your help.
I hope my quest is not unrealistic.

I'm bracelet shopping at the moment - that open link bracelet would suit nicely. I will keep my eyes open for one or something similar and let you know what I find. If anybody has any info please let us know.
