    This is true... Although when I bought my U2 in 2013 no bracelet exited for it. Actually, having looked on the Bremont site last night, I'm not sure they do any more either...

    That's a solid rule - and something I've always done up until I started collecting Bremont, as the watches (generally) suit leather better in my opinion. I'm now slightly regretting it! Anyone got an S500 bracelet going...?

    Perhaps it's just me but I actually prefer the Bremonts on leather or nato straps. I am not a big fan of them on steel bracelets.
    Don't get me wrong I have other watches on bracelets and love them. Perhaps it's a psychological thing with most of them being sold without a bracelet and I have just got used seeing them like it.
