Hi all

I just picked up this nice yellow Pogue which came on what I'm sure is an aftermarket bracelet, but I've no clue where/when it originates.

The SpringBar guide shows a photo of the same kind of thing:

but I don't think I've seen one like this before. The end links on the one I have look like they're possibly aftermarket as well, but the clasp looks like a real one. Dunno about the blades in the clasp - does this ring any bell?

Looks to me like someone installed an original clasp. I have seen these bracelets offered from sellers in the Philippians.

The outer clasp looks correct and is the same size as a genuine H-link , but the blades? Not sure I've seen a Seiko with an inner clasp like that...

As a bracelet, it looks and feels OK - certainly better than most of the AM H-link gargaj I've seen. It's going onto a lesser Pogue though, and a proper one installed here along with a 2-pc chrono hand when it next goes under the knife.

I've got a couple of those bracelets. I'm not sure if they have that clasp or not - certainly something similar. I prefer the other two styles of AM bracelets but I'm sure I've sold a Pogue with one of these and the buyer was happy with it (he was fine with an AM loaded Pogue).

I bought this proof Pogue with a after market bracelet fitted and I hate to admit it but it wore better than a OEM bracelet, I no longer have watch/bracelet as traded earlier this year.

Do those end links have folded ends? I never seen aftermarket ones with folded ends.
It also seems to be have slight gaps on the sides like most of the original ones I’ve seen

Through some regular end links on it and an original clasp and there you have it:
