Hey guys! Today we take a look at two metal bracelets from Uncle Seiko. The Z199 bracelet is Uncle Seiko’s take on the original Seiko Z199 bracelet which is not only difficult to find, but rather expensive when you do locate one. Uncle Seiko’s Z199 offering is extremely close to the original design; the only difference being the degree of taper from 22mm to 16mm. The beads of rice bracelet is Uncle Seiko’s modern interpretation of the vintage style beads of rice bracelets found more commonly on vintage watches from brands like Patek Phillipe, Omega and Heuer. The B.O.R bracelet gives the SKX a new wearing experience for sure. Do check out the straps, I highly recommend them!

More money to spend! Great video, went straight to the site to check out other options. Liked the President Bracelet also, looked solid. Thanks Eric!!

Neuro says:

Love the breads of rice bracelets

Bad Egg says:

Good review- I’ve been thinking about buying one. You covered just about all the points needed for a buyer to make a sound decision to purchase. I hope more companies send you products to review.

Did you get the long or short version of the Z199?

S L says:

Sorry, one more thing. I have the same wrist size as you, is this the short version of the z199? Thanks again!

JoeyJoe says:

I like the Uncle Seiko bracelets , but Id prob ditch the clasps and re-attach stock Seiko clasps instead . Thats what I did with my strapcode super jubilee , and now its perfect . Not to mention it now has a divers extension , although I wont use it , but i like the divers ext on seiko clasps because it is articulating , and conforms around the wrist nicer . Cheers .

Awesome Uncle Seiko

Jojo says:

Nice review on the Uncle Seiko bracelets

Steven Wymor says:

Eric, I believe the Doxa divers used a beads of rice bracelet. And yes, Larry makes quality stuff. I bought his oyster bracelet for my SKX and love it. Another good and well considered review.

DJ forGuv'nor says:

The screw pins are a great upgrade on the Z199. The hollow end links was always one of the weak points of the original bracelets, it’s just a pity they aren’t solid. I still have my original skx007 bracelet, and I love it, it wears well, doesn’t pull arm hair, and moves with your wrist. The uncle seiko replacement is still a great price for a replacement bracelet. Great review.

S L says:

It seems like the brushed finish on the z199 doesn’t match the SKX case finish? Or is that particular SKX polished?

ihacks tv says:

Great video and channel! Just modded my skx007!

Guillo Tine says:

I have the Z199 on a Seiko 5 and it actually fits perfect despite the end-links being 18mm. It makes my $75 watch feel much nicer. Love the insane taper on that bracelet. Also, have an Uncle Seiko president bracelet on my turtle and recently ordered the beads of rice for my skx013. Uncle Seiko bracelets are great.

Calvin Tan says:

Well the skx bracelet that came with my skx007 have solid links. I think not all skx bracelets have folded links.
