The spring bars included just wouldn't budge in terms of jumping into the slots, so I had to use ones from the original bracelet.
Then the endlinks decided that their top surface was to stick out well above the lugs. Fuck! Well, I secured the pliers with an old, worn, dirty and tattered microfibre cloth, and I managed to bend them down a little. just that there'd be no nasty gap in there. That's as good a fit as I could get out of it:
The links are solid, and not half bad. The pins, upon pushing them out with a bracelet vise, jump out with an audible snap, and it takes quite a lot of knocking on them with a mallet to press them back in.
The clasp...well, it's no work of art, but IMO beats the one found on the original bracelet. Friction-locked, has a lot of positions for micro-adjustment.
Just like the original bracelet of that Seiko, it has a bloody long clasp, but I managed to balance it out with the micro-adjustment and the one link I had to remove.
If you have an SNXS, it's a bracelet option you might want to consider... However, do keep in mind that getting the endlinks to fit right is a bitch, and so is getting the spring bars to pop in where they fucking should.
