I was going to say exactly the same thing. My link bracelet is still going strong after I originally purchased it for my Series 0 in early 2016 and then upgraded the watch twice since. Not a single issue with it. It costs more but it will last a long time. Just needs an occasional refinishing with a Scotch Brite pad to look like new again.I’ve been wearing my link bracelet for four years without issue, so it’s worth get the real deal to me. I think it’s one of the great watch bracelet designs ever, so I’m ok with spending money on the real thing, which is still relative peanuts compared to bracelets from Swiss watch makers.
