Swiss diver on a German mesh bracelet.

A GADA watch - I think it’s a clean look.

Now that’s not a combo that you see everyday

Looks sharp

Haha, thanks.

The watch is quite conservative in proportions - Both in terms of case size and around 10mm thickness. The bracelet definitely feels solid.

Like it! Well played. [nt]

Feels like I've been knighted by the king.

ROFL! [nt]

Looks great

I have always been worried that the spring bar design may eat into the case lugs over time compared to other open-loop mesh straps.

No need to worry.

As you can see at the top of the picture, there is definitely enough space between the bracelet and the top of the case. The bracelet uses the standard spring bar.

I think it works 👍🏻

Relatively Recent

As MiguelFlash wrote, this was a "vintage inspired" release last year. Here is the link below. The Original FF (see below) has much more charm. But also the potential difficulties with owning a vintage watch. Credit Phillips This is what a vintage Bathys...  

The original is a killer. A true killer.

Hard to argue...

Won't even try=)

Interesting combo 🤔 [nt]

The bracelet adds a bit of visual weight to an otherwise mid size dive watch. I like the satin finish (a polished bracelet wouldn't be appropriate here).

On the flip side... the finishing of the bracelets on your recently posted pair of Royal Oaks is definitely 2nd to none. And definitely appropriate!
