Yes they do, I saw before.

Anyway, here is my buying experience for the Grey Fossil SS bracelet.

1. Went to a Fossil Brick and mortar store and browsed, saw the Nate chronograph SS watch and asked the CSO if I could buy just the bracelet of that watch and she said no but she added that I could buy the bracelet directly from their head office and she gave me the model number of the nate chronograph and contact details.
2. I called the head office quoted the model number of the nate chronograph and requested to buy the bracelet and they said no as well! They said that I had to send my watch in for repairs in order to get the bracelet, also they didn't have existing stock and had to place an order to get it shipped in from somewhere else. So I said ok, I'll bring my watch in for repairs(pretending that I actually had a nate chronograph), she confirmed my order and proceed to ship the bracelet in.
3. 2 weeks later, Fossil called and informed me that the bracelet has arrived and to fix an appointment to bring my watch in for repairs and the appointment was fixed on the next day.
4. The next day I showed up at Fossil and requested for my bracelet. They requested to see my watch and I told them that I left my house in a hurry that morning and I forgot to bring my watch. After a bit of persuasion, they sold me the bracelet straight out without seeing my watch, I paid cash and I was in and out of the head office in less than 10mins.

Actually hor, bracelets feel very heavy on the wrist and after wearing it awhile it feels very tiring wearing it. I recently switched to SS mesh straps which feel very light and comfortable to wear throughout the day and it looks more elegant than the bracelet style. If you wear suit and tie, I would recommend SS mesh straps instead of bracelet. Here are some photos to show you the look and feel (Please don't look at the adapters hor. I bought polished SS adapters and spray painted them grey and now the paint coming off, still waiting for grey adapters to be available in the market) :
