    Will be great to see how it looks, really looking forward to this. I will be putting in an order this week for some rubber straps and other parts for my Seiko watches since you have the offer on the rubber straps just now :thumbsup:.

    Looking forward to see it, I'm very interesting about the flat link.

    Since no one has shown this on the FOIS yet, thought I'd take a quick snapshot after putting mine on this afternoon. I wanted to say a few things for anyone not sure about buying this.

    1. The end links fit perfectly, even better than Omega end-links. I didn't have to do any manipulation (i.e., bending) on the back to get it to fit without rattling.

    2. The bracelet is light and extremely comfortable.

    Uncle Seiko knocked it out of the park with this one. I do wish it was offered with polished/brushed links, and if it is eventually, I'll pick up another. I also can't wait for the flat-link.

    Looks great, Donn! Thanks for the write up. I'm looking forward to wearing my FOIS on a flatlink.

    @Uncle Seiko - nice work! Can you say positively that there will be a polished/brushed version available? If so, I will wait for it, if not- I’ll order now.

    Since there is a demand for it, I think I will have to do it. I wear mine on the brushed polished and it is pretty great. However, I might just do it in 19mm since the top of those lugs is brushed and it would look way-mo-bettah with polish in the bracelet.

    Well, mine is a 20mm lugged ‘72 vintage and I hate my hair puller factory bracelet- so if your gonna do it in 20, let us know.

    Please do it in 20mm as well - I have the normal Speedy and would love to have the polished version on it!

    Don’t think he is doing an 1171 version, as this is still readily available from Omega. Pretty sure it is just the Holzer and a flat-link 1039-style bracelet.

    Last I saw the order was Holzer, 1171, flatlink, at roughly 1 month increments, so if flatlink is 2 months out, hopefully 1171 is next month?!?!
