    It all depends on how well they were manufactured and then how well they were fitted to the watch. Your watchmaker can fit the end links if you're at all concerned about it.

    When I got my Speedy it rattled like crazy, had a gap between the end link and the case and it would ride up and down as my arm flexed. I thought that was just the way they were. Years later a friend with more watch savvy than I at the time offered to adjust it for me, he used small pliers that had taped ends as to not mark the surface and did a little bending, then fitting, then bending, then fitting. After about 10 minutes he had them fitted perfectly- never have had to touch them again.

    Get in line boys :D I also will be grabbing one when available. Last insta post said the latest design is 30-45 days out. I assume the flatlink will be the next one to come after that.

    Sadly the uncle seiko flatlink will probably be in my hands sooner than the 50th flatlink I ordered back in September. ::censored::

    Can’t wait to spend my money on it! Not for my Omega’s, but I love the slim design and feeling on my wrist, so I wanna put it on some of my chronos.

    Any chance you could do a president style for the 44,25mm Co-Axial speedy with 21mm lug width?

    According to his IG he'll have a new bracelet out in a month, then another in the next month and then maybe the flatlink. So you're looking at least 3 months out minimum

    Love your Seiko stuff (on my Seikos) but any love for the new Seamaster 42mm? Would love a BoR tapering bracelet with fitted endlinks.
