    Recently picked this up. It’s a French micro brand that uses ETA movements and plays to an “active / adventure” ethos. I particularly liked the sandwich dial and the Bakelite style bezel. BCB91E51-66D1-4AD4-AACE-1843CC7FC878.jpeg 66FEBEB3-82B1-456A-988E-393355343508.jpeg

    Speaking of black bay and bronze looking shit after you wear it, I think Bark (or is his name Jack) sums it up pretty nicely in this video.

    I've found that the Omega OEM "Ed White" 321 bracelet will fit on my First Omega in Space (FOIS) with both the Forstner & Uncle Seiko 19mm end links. But now I can't quite decide which I like better.

    I'm leaning towards the Uncle Seiko end link (pictured below), as its shape matches the FOIS's lugs a little better and gives more of an OEM vintage look (IMHO). However, they are hollow links and require a little bit of finesse to install.

    OTOH, the Forstner end links (pictured here) are solid end links, higher quality and install smoothly for a perfect fit. It has a rounded edge where the end link meets the bracelet (whereas the Uncle Seiko is squared off), and it tappers down towards the wrist a bit more. It looks very nice too, but slightly less OEM in its appearance to me.

    Still debating on which end link to stick with, any thoughts would be welcome...

    I like the look of the US more, seeing the center link that attaches to forstner end link when tapered and the insides of the lugs makes it less attractive.

    Thanks for your feedback. :)
    The exposed center link isn't necessarily a negative to me, as that's how the design is on the OEM end-link too. However, I agree that the rounded taper which exposes the inside of the lugs is less attractive. I do like how the Uncle Seiko end link sits more flush with lugs and the overall look in general. So it has a slight edge in looks, but the Forstner wins on quality, hence still pondering...

    Just for reference, a pic of the Ed White. The OEM end link sits nicely flushed with the lugs, like the Uncle Seiko, but has the exposed center links like the Forstner. I wish I could get the OEM end link to work on my FOIS, but the pin holes simply don't line up. :(

    Nobody will notice either way. I say wear it with the US one week and the Fostner next. It’s how I figure out how keen I am with a new strap. That initial thing that bugs me or I think I love gets an opportunity to settle in and I get a real feel for it. Post a few photos and see how you feel about them. If you hadn’t shown the differences I would be blissfully ignorant to the subtle changes between the two.

    I like it either way but would probably go with the solid end link if it were mine.
