    You may be able to mount it without scratches but I haven’t seen hollow links from any maker that don’t scratch the lugs/case during normal wear to some degree. Most people with both have stated that the Uncle Seiko end links are a significantly better fit than Omegas and if you spend a few minutes with 500 sandpaper you’ll dull any edges that might cause issues.

    when you ordered this on eBay, did they provide any tracking? They didn’t give me a tracking number.

    bonjour,
    J'ai bien reçu mon bracelet Uncle et en moins de 15 jours avec un suivi quotidien.
    Le bracelet est parfait, un ajustement au top et un look que j'adore.
    Quand je vois le prix des 1039 original, je ne suis pas prêt d'investir, tellement le Uncle est superbe.
    Pour les traces j'ai eu les même avec le bracelet orignal acier.
    Très bonne journée

    My french lessons at the French Alliance are paying off! I'm able to understand a large portion of that message.

    I understood every part of it! Maybe it is because I am French :D
    Long story short: he is very happy!

    @Uncle Seiko I wanted to order a flatlink brushed/polished in 20mm + extra 19mm endlinks, but endlinks are sold out... :( Is it permanent or will they be back in stock soon?

    Really wish we could get 21mm endlinks so I could put one on my Seamaster 300MC. Damn you, Omega, for making it 21mm width!

    If Uncle Seiko made 21mm for the Seamaster and 18mm for the Speedmaster 38 it would be great for those who have these models and want his product...HINT HINT....

    Just wanted to share my appreciation for Uncle Seiko and the other forum members for the clasp mods. I purchased both the Flat Link and President bracelets from US as well as both OEM clasps mentioned in this thread and ALL of it worked out beautifully. Uncle Seiko has really done the Omega community a valuable service by releasing affordable alternatives to coveted vintage bracelets that are in some ways even superior to the original designs. Buy with confidence for both the US bracelets and the associated eBay clasps.

    My clasps arrived and were fitted, delighted with the results.

    Echo everyone else’s comments about these bracelets very comfortable, tiny bit fiddly to get on a newer case in my experience image.jpg image.jpg

    I have been mighty impressed by the service @Uncle Seiko has provided. Many thanks L.

    This is how good the US Flat Link can look on both old and new(ish) Omegas. Both full brush and the brush/polish versions are shown here:

    My AD adjusted the bracelet for me and was impressed with the fit of the end links and overall quality. He even called over someone else working there to show him. Coincidentally he was wearing an original Heuer beads of rice bracelet himself.

    Looks like a neat short clip beneath that clasp cover.

    I just picked up 2 as well. There were 6 left at the time. Maybe I missed this, but does anyone know which model this clasp cover is from? Not that it matters, but it would be cool to know.

    I got one of the clasps from Canada. He seems to have a pretty unlimited supply, when one listing runs out he starts another. This suggests they might not be genuine. But they do look good.

    I guess there could be some kind of vintage parts manufacturing operation in Canada?
