    I did the same but then I look at the Mitsukoshi with the Holzer and realise I should have ordered a set of 20mm end links too :D ......next order I'll add them

    Hey everyone. I have a Beads of Rice and it looks great. Anyone have any tips for putting one on with a standard springbar tool? This one seem a little trickier than most.

    Order is in for one of those Holzers... Looking forward to seeing it in the flesh!

    Thanks @Uncle Seiko for capturing our feedback, and making these affordable bracelets

    Just a heads up, guys. A couple of customers received the Holzer with a 19mm and 20mm end-link. It turns out that some 19mm end-links were mixed up with the 20mms. Ugh. If this happens to you, 1. I am totally sorry and 2. I will take care of it right away.

    Just received the uncle seiko 1171 and I love it. Feels just like the OEM, that is to say, vintage-feeling, light and just a little rattly. The hollow end links fit extremely well without any tinkering. It feels like a vintage bracelet at a fraction of the cost of the real thing. Extremely comfortable. Don’t expect a 1998/1498 level of heft, this one captures the vintage feeling perfectly. Also like how the uncle seiko upside down looks a little like an Omega logo if you squint.
    Sign me up for the 1035/1039 release!

    Already in production. I hope it's quick, although the USPS is so backlogged right now it's probably a perfect time for it.

    Received my holzer today, and I absolutely love it. It looks absolutely amazing on the ultraman, and has made the watch complete finally. Larry, u have done an incredible job, and also not to mention great communication and customer service, Thank u!!! If anyone is on the fence about this bracelet, don’t be, it’s one of those increasingly rare items where it’s value is significantly more than it’s price, in terms of fit and comfort - I couldn’t ask for anything more, and I also love the little U logo on the clasp, it’s uncle but also fits perfect on the omega.

    At first, I wasn't so sure about the Holzer but then grew to like it more and more.
    Excellent choice with your Ultraman.

    Thank you very much for taking the time to post further images.

    Got my beads of rice last week. Ordered on Saturday, arrived on Tuesday. It was my first time dealing with hollow end links and it took me what seemed like forever to get it on. If anyone has any handy videos about putting one of these on, please share!

    Impressions:

    Uncle Seiko was great to deal with. Promptly answered questions before and after the sale.

    Bracelet looks and feels great on the Moonwatch.

    For under $100 you really couldn't find a cooler way to dress up your watch.

    If you remove the end-links and flatten them slightly, you can get a better fit. Since they are narrow to begin with, they get stretched out in the mounting process and that is why one of the sharp corners is protruding a bit. Just a suggestion. Light pressure, not too much, then remount.

    Arrived today. Bonus pic of the Speedmaster 60th showing another recent bracelet alternative. Both are really welcome additions to my two 60th pieces.

    Is that the BOR bracelet with a new clasp? How did you get it? I'd love to as I only have the Seiko-style clasp.
