A beads of rice style bracelet instantly adds a vintage classy appeal to your watch. Forster’s Beads of Rice bracelet is an interesting take on the design with its alternating polished and brushed links. The Beads of Rice is right at home on both vintage and modern watches, and thanks to the alternating finishes, on both brushed and polished pieces. 

Forstner’s decision to use both brushed and high polished links gives the bracelet a unique look. The rounded surfaces on the polished portions play with the light, while the brushed sections keep it toned down enough for everyday wear. Measuring in at 16mm at the “beads” portion, you can choose from 16mm to 20mm end bars that fit a wide variety of watches. To fit the band you can remove the screwed-in bars that hold the links together, then dial it in even further via the micro adjustments on the clasp. If you’re looking to add some dressy appeal to your watch without something fully polished, Forstner’s Beads of Rice is a great option that provides the best of both worlds.

About Forstner

Originally founded in 1920, Forstner Bands have always focused on making fine accessories for wrist watches. Starting out with ornamental bracelets, the brand eventually moved on to create several iconic watch bracelets, including the Komfit and Bonklip — both highly adjustable to comfortably suit a wide range of wrist sizes. Forstner is probably best known for being the metal band of choice for NASA astronauts, commonly seen fitted to their trusty Speedmasters. In 2019, the brand relaunched with their most popular designs, providing a quality aftermarket option for your favorite watch.
