Is this gap acceptable?!

As some of you already know, I bought this Tissot on the original leather strap for a discount on Amazon. Usually I like to have the original bracelet to widen my options depending on the mood.

I found the original bracelet on a Dutch website and when it arrived I found it has that gap between the end link and the rest of the bracelet.

Is that gap normal and/or acceptable? 👀

The bracelet cost 1/3 the discounted price of the watch 🥹. Is that insane of me to buy a bracelet costing that much?

You can see I still have the stickers on, in case I change my mind and return it. 

Feel free to speak your mind, I won't be offended 🫣

The watch is very cool, but I do believe that gap is inherent with the end link design. I could live with the gap, but I couldn’t live with the brushed end links on polished lugs. To me it looks like the wrong bracelet. I say return it and mix the look up with different straps.

·

I find this gap acceptable 😉

I think that the gap would look less prominent once the wrap is off the bracelet because then there'll be all the other only slightly smaller gaps between the other links.

Buying the stock bracelet on it's own is often quite expensive. A quick search showed that this one is 100 €, that's an ok price in my opinion.

It would bug me and I think that watch (even without a photo) must look way better on leather.  Seems like it would be a strap monster, I'd go that route with it to change it up.

I added additional photos on different straps, including the leather one (though not avery revealing photo)

Are you sure this is the original bracelet for this watch? I'm asking this question because from looking at the photo you published it looks like the finish of the end link and is different from the one on the top of the lugs. For me this kind of mismatch is more annoying than a end-link gap, which BTW I find acceptable in this case.

Every one of those looks better than the bracelet imo... nice watch.

I checked, I'd say the bracelet finish is supposed to different from the lugs:

Like others said in this thread, to me this watch looks better on leather or a nylon strap.

That grey sailcloth looks fantastic with this bezel. Not a fan of the bracelet. Sorry.

my thoughts exactly.

Great pick up. To be honest I didint even see the gap. I don't think it is all that serious, but yes, as others have pointed out, it looks great on all those straps. Wear it how you want. Enjoy.

·

Seems like a watch for straps, not a bracelet. Though that might just be me. It's your watch, wear it however you like it.

·

The texture of the dial goes well with the straps. They look better to me than the bracelet. The gap will likely be less prominent without the plastic on the links, but I‘d use this one on straps. 

·

Absolutely fine, and the brushed end links look fine too they match the brushed outter links, it would look odd if the end links were polished.

No this set up is good 👍

Not bad...looks Ok to me

Agreed with everyone here, gap is ok, but this watch looks better on straps IMO. I am a leather strap addict myself, so thats how I would roll with this watch if I had one.
