Rivet style bracelets
A rivet is a permanent mechanical fastener. Before being installed, a rivet consists of a smooth cylindrical shaft with a head on one end. The end opposite to the head is called the tail.
One of Strapcode’s latest design, the “Metabind”, was inspired from the iconic vintage riveted metal bracelet that was introduced back in the 60’s. The design of the bracelet was brought up to date using solid links with removable screw rivets for quick and easy adjustments.
To clarify why rivet style bracelets were given its name was simply because of the visible rivets that can be seen on the outer edges of the bracelet that hold together the hollow, folded links.
As much as you would expect new and renovated bracelets are on everyone’s to have list. However, there are some that would prefer the old classic bracelets instead for various reasons.
Through emails and readings found online, common problems with new design bracelets that people mentioned are either the bracelet is too wide, or the bracelet does not taper down nicely to the clasp like older vintage style bracelets.
Strapcode’s Metabind bracelets will be available exclusively for Seiko SKX007/009/011 models, as well as New SRP Turtle model watches. Metabind bracelets will also be available in 22mm straight end for all 22mm lug width size watch models.
