Thread: Alternative Everest bracelet

  1. #1

    Alternative Everest bracelet

    For those looking for alternatives: Uncle Seiko SARB does NOT fit the Everest PRS-25.

    I tried, since I was getting desperate for a Jubilee. The curves are ok, but the lug holes are a big mismatch, so the end links doesn't connect with the watch head.

    If anyone has a good Jubilee that does fit the PRS-25, please share.

    Quite some time ago i fitted this one that i bought off Amazon. I no longer have the watch or the bracelet .Please note though that I bought and fitted this before Timefactors actually had a Jubilee bracelet at all and i must add that there actually is no true substitute for the actual bracelets made for these watches and produced for Mr Platts.

    Jubilee

    Not sure why it's taking Eddie so long to get more inventory? If they are made in China I would think they could pump them out like all the San Martin stuff? Anyone have a San Martin they could try on the Everest?

    It's not taking so long, it's just that everything has a scheduled release date.

    Eddie, are you considering doing international shipping again once the next batch of jubilee bracelets arrive? Was hoping I could get one to pair with my honeycomb.

    Exactly my plan as well!

    Jubilees immediately showed as sold out? I was refreshing and it went from no button to sold out! I'm pretty disappointed. Eddie, is a bigger shipment coming at some point?

    They were available for a split second and I had one in my basket and completed the pay section, but it wasn’t to be. Very frustrating

    That was fast!

    Feel your pain gone in 10 seconds. Able to add to cart but sold out when viewing cart to check out. Eddie did say there would be a very limited supply and they must be sought after. Better luck next time.

    Yep, I know how it goes! I'd had good luck in the past but it wasn't to be today. Maybe next time, I'll keep an eye out.

    Any other suggestions on this? Waiting for release in new year but in case I miss the opportunity I want an alternative.

    I'm not a big fan of the Jubilee style on the Everest line and still think the range looks way better on the Oyster style, so I'm guessing it will be the same issue in purchasing a new Oyster style bracelet from TF now the Jubilee is standard across the Everest line.

    I do fancy a honeycomb model but with the Jubilee, its putting me off a little.....so we'll see at next TF store opening if I decide to try from one.

    You can probably get the oyster-style bracelet on one of the quieter, non-Everest openings. I have a honeycomb from the first batch but I actually wear it on leather or rubber most of the time.

    There are quite a few photos on the thread discussing the Everest specifically on the Alpha oyster-style bracelet.

    Personally I think it's ideal for the watch.

    All jubilees sold out in a minute. Has added to basket but gone when putting payment details in.

    Is there an alternative jubilee that fits this? Otherwise considering selling watch at this point.

    0 for 3!

    Glad you were able to get one. Had no idea more would be offered, frustrated I missed them again. Cannot get a good fit with the oyster without any 1/2 links. Was hoping to try the Jubilee with much smaller increments of adjustment. I'm moving on and putting my Everest's up for sale.

    Are the micro-adjusts in the clasp not enough to get a good fit? Surely there's more than a half-link of adjustment equivalent in there?

    Jubilee

    Dave, never been able to achieve a comfortable fit. Maybe the more articulating links of the Jubilee would make for a better experience. I like the Everest too much so ordered an aftermarket Seiko 5 Jubilee that may fit?

    Jubilee

    Tom, how's the new bracelet working out, do you prefer it to the Oyster?

    Enjoying the new Jubilee, makes the watch feel more elegant.

    I personally prefer it on the Jubilee.

    I am giving up now. I have tried for 10 and 15 months to get jubilees for my Everest and Commander respectively.
    Sold out today in seconds, again.
    I will put my watches up for sale now. I don't have enough posts to sell here, so it will be eBay, I guess.

    (And since I can't post ads here: WTB 2 jubilee bracelets! Can trade for oyster bracelets!)

    . .. looks nice on that Jubilee

    The Everest Expedition looks nice on that Jubilee, I had not thought of that as an alternative for that model. Always found that as metal bracelets go that the Jubilee is amongst the most comfortable to wear and forgives a thousand blemishes and scratches unlike say an Oyster Bracelet .
