I tried a new (to me) seller on Ebay selling thick shark mesh bracelets with BIN's below $15 delivered (mastation - no affiliation).



The 'face' of the mesh is a little flatter than WJeans, which gives it a smoother feel on the wrist, but I still also like the rounder link feel of the WJean as well (both nice I mean). The clasp on WJean's appear better as this one is a little tough at time to flip the 1st stage of the clasp (fliplock) out of the way, but it seems like that'll ease up over time. Very impressed so far.

Yes, but I think the might sell extension links, I don't recall exactly. It came longer than I needed for me, I clipped 2 rows of links out, and then still had to use the last hole to get it right enough. I should have taken 3 rows out, it is still a little loose. I don't know my exact wrist size, I assume average as most used watches on bracelets with a couple links out arrive fitting perfectly.

I recently purchased two from this seller. The quality is good but not outstanding because it is somewhat variable. The length was perfect for me (approx. 7.5" wrist) and did not require sizing via heavy wire cutters. For the price I can scarcely complain.

Is there a link to the seller or close to that.


The clasp can be switched with a better one I would say.
I mean for the price stated, why not.

I've got about 5 of these now, 4 stainless and 1 black between 20 and 24mm. Quality is fine for the price but not outstanding. They seem to fit me fine with no adjustment but would need an extender if your wrist is bigger than 7.5".

Update - loving it still, but just tried to put the 22mm one on a SBBN007, and the holes in the case (for a fat bar) are to big and cause the slim 22mm spring bars that come with it to fal out. I tried reusing the SBBN007's fat bars, but they're to large for the bracelet (won't thread through).

Anyone else run into this? Seems a shark mesh should be able to go on a modern Tuna, but I'm not sure how to do it yet.
