15300ST - "bracelet to strap conversion" project  
(
(under construction) - full report and pictures coming soon !!)
1) For me - the ideal scenario is to get the black strap with contrast stitching and SS buckle from !
 Ltd. NY Boutique chrono 26014 & four SS links from Chrono model 25979 (City of Sails) but the links do not fit !
2) Another option would be to get  the dark brown strap with contrast stitching and any 16mm SS AP tang buckle (or high quality aftermarket SS deployant buckle
3)
Option three - get hold of ONE link from YG or RG 15300 on strap, mass-produce it after-market and use with OEM straps.
    This is the option I have decided to go after, in order to ensure perfect OEM fit.
