    There is a lot of anticipation on here (I'm included) as to the forthcoming release of Forstners & Uncle Seiko's Flatlink bracelet. I don't think either will disappoint but interested to know which way others are leaning. As a UK chappie I'm loosely thinking Forstner only because as I understand it you can only buy the Uncle Seiko version from the US site and the possible delays in shipping to the UK. Also, Forstner looks to have some 'elasticated' links which seem a nice touch. I'm assuming both will have brushed & polished, 19mm & 20mm options. I don't think either will have a job shifting them. Supply may be another issue, assuming both will release at about the same time.

    Looking forward to it!

    Yep, I've been checking all their sites regularly, .com and .co.uk waiting for the flatlinks to drop.

    I'm in the same boat as yourself being UK based, that and I already own a straight end Forstner bracelet so perhaps biased :D

    I’m in the US and the Uncle Seiko flat-link should be available by mid-July, so that’s the one I’m getting. I don’t think we know when the Forstner version will be available. Once it comes out, I may get one of them, too!

    Deep down, I don't wish to end up with two of the same type but knowing myself well ...

    All brushed or partly polished....all brushed or partly...... ?

    Judging by the interest it may be a struggle getting hold of just one.

    Thanks for letting us know the product has gone live. Oddly, I had a hunch it would be soon because the Speedmaster product page had some slight differences earlier in the day.

    In for an all brushed.
