The new Forstner Contemporary Flat Link is the most significant update yet and gives an option to those wanting a modern feel. But while it still maintains the vintage cues, the Contemporary Flat Link is not without sacrifice.
While it was fantastic to see the Flat Link on the Broad Arrow Omega Speedmaster Replica, the Moonwatch is the iconic home of this bracelet style. As this is only a Strap Check, I won’t be retreading Rob’s steps, as for the most part, I echo his thoughts.
However, Rob mentioned that the “nipple” that protrudes from the clasp unnecessarily rubs the nearest center link.Looking at the Cheap Omega Replica bracelet side by side, I can appreciate the existence of this bump following the silhouette of the Omega logo on the clasp. Nevertheless, I’d prefer its omission.
Compared to the previous Forstner bracelet, each link is chunkier yet retains the namesake flatness. Notably, a “Flat” link must have a straight edge on the outer surface. If the edges of the links begin to curve to allow more freedom of movement, such as the Seamaster 300 bracelet, it disqualifies it as a Flat Link.
That’s no simple feat, as there is a point where the curvature is necessary when upping the heft of the links. You’d get to the point of no articulation with a square-shaped construction.
Another noticeable upgrade is the High Quality Omega Replica Watch double push-button clasp release. No longer a nail-buster, the clasp is unfastened by pinching the buttons on both sides. Folding over the clasp showcases a solid steel machined structure with a central latch that follows the lines of the center links.
On the newest ref. 1479-style bracelet mounted to the regular Speedmaster Moonwatch, each link has two screw heads and a pin. The pin slots through and is capped with tiny screws on each side. From experience, these screws tend to go walkies if you knock the table or happen to breathe near them.
Their diminutive size makes them a pain to slot in the housing. Tweezers, finger gloves, and a lot of patience are the additional tool requirements for adjusting the newest Best Omega Replica Watches Review bracelet.
In comparison, the Forstner Contemporary Flat Link has a single substantial screw per link, making it a cinch to adjust.
On the wrist, the new Contemporary Flat Link feels precise and durable. It doesn’t stray too far from the original aesthetic or become too bulky. Looking at it top-down, it almost seems as if it was the intended bracelet from Fake Omega Watches Ebay itself.
Losing the expanding links is the only element that further removes it from the ref. 1039 inspiration. But for a solid modern Omega Clone watch, the Contemporary is a better fit for the style and quality. I opted for the polished/brushed version with a seamless transition from the polished outer lyre lugs to the similarly finished external links. The brushed center links tone down the bling just enough to maintain the sporty design.
