The Beads of Rice

The beads of rice is one of those quintessential watch accessories that belongs in every collection--exuding a subtle elegance that transforms the look and feel of your watch.  Forstner has released its own take on this classic design, blending the best of the old and the new (for example, using solid removable links instead of hollow links). Beautifully finished in alternating polished and brushed stainless steel, it'll look fantastic on virtually anything.

The Klip

The Forstner Klip brings back one of the most popular bands in Forstner's historic catalog.  The present bonklip-style bracelet has an 18mm wide central portion, with alternating brushed and polished finishes on the rectangular "ladder" design, and a polished spring-loaded clasp.  Made entirely of stainless steel, the band is light, breathable, and extremely comfortable, having the ability to be easily sized in approximately 3mm increments for the perfect fit.

The Flat Link

Forstner created its own take on the classic flat link bracelet--one of the most beautifully designed, and comfortable, bracelets ever offered for the Speedmaster. We kept the beauty and charm of the original but improved it for fit, convenience, and wearability.  Details in the link!
