Can never understand why some people think this looks good.

I’m a huge fan of curved end links on a curved lug.

Of course I have an exception. To my eyes, it’s ok, to others it might not be.
I couldn’t find a decent fitting curved bracelet that I liked in these, so I tried this out. Saw it like $5.50 on Aliexpress and tried it on the Kurono. I think I can live with it, so I ordered a few more for others I had trouble finding a curved link bracelet for.

The HMT Stellar is 42mm and a little heavy. This bracelet lightens it up.

A curved link to match is perfect and when I find one for these I will switch to it, but for now I can live with it.

Would this work?
I got a couple of these, 20mm and 18mm. Merkur wanted like 25 a piece, but I found this for so much cheaper. They aren’t bad, no hang down tail like the old ones, this one slides over and locks on itself.

I think so. Shorter logs on the watch and the style of bracelet seems more in line
