Forstner Bands Bullet Bracelet, $155 (approx. £122)
While Forstner are perhaps best known for the Komfit bracelet, that’s not the only celebrated strap they’ve created in their extensive history. The Bullet Bracelet is a popular heritage bracelet from the 1960s and now it’s back. It’s a five-link bracelet with a unique composition of rounded and angled links with flat ends that gives it a notable quality of depth and brilliance. It was originally designed for the Bulova Accutron Astronaut, but now it’s available for most watches – there’s even a fitted end link version for the lugs of the Speedmaster or Black Bay.
Available at Forstner Bands.
