A couple of months ago, I chanced upon this Reddit thread and discovered that there is a replica for the Link Bracelet. It is sort of a Keep In View (KIV) for me, in case I wanted to get one for my Apple Watch 42mm Space Black Stainless Steel Case.
I agreed, and I chose the 42mm Space Black OULUOQI Replica Link Bracelet which retails for only US$59.99 (S$83). The price is the same for either 42mm or 38mm in Space Black or Silver.
Economy shipping to Singapore is free, and it takes about two to three weeks to reach you. You can upgrade to standard shipping which is an additional US$3.99 (S$6), and you will get it within one to two weeks. If you need it within two weeks, there is the express shipping option which takes three to five business days to reach you.
Similar to the original Link Bracelet, the replica Link Bracelet is also made from 316L stainless steel alloy and features the same butterfly closure.
Even the method of the removing the individual link is the same as the original. Push the button, and the link will be released.
My previous Apple Watch came with the Silver Link Bracelet, and probably the only thing you will notice between both the original and replica is the build quality. The replica build quality is slightly lower, but it is still acceptable.
You can’t tell the difference just by looking at it on someone’s wrist. Also, if you have not owned or played with the original Link Bracelet, you probably can’t tell the difference at all.
