FS: Autavia 20mm ends Hadley Beads of Rice bracelet NOS

The NOS beads of rice bracelet for sale here is very similar to the Heuer Gay Freres beads of rice bands originally seen on Autavia and Carrera models. Has four beads connections points at the end instead of the usual three. Offered here complete with 20mm ends to fit the Heuer 2446C cases. Unlike many other BoRs in that the links flare out to also be 19.8mm wide before the 20mm end pieces. Makes for a perfect transition. This bracelet has the standard BoR finish: polished inner rows, surrounded by satin outer rows, with polished finish end pieces. Get a complete bracelet with 20mm ends for far less than the cost of just Heuer HLB 20mm ends alone!

Also a versatile piece to put into your Heuer rotation because this BoR mates perfectly with original Heuer ends such as HLC, HLD and HLF with 4 slots in them. These pictures show it alongside a Gay Freres band.

New Old Stock vintage item c. 1960s/70s signed on the back of the clasp "100% Stainless Steel Hadley Hong Kong.” Good length is 6 3/8 inches (16cm) fully extended and sizes down to 5 5/8 inches (14cm) with the adjustments in the clasp. You can remove links to make it shorter. Clasp is 17.4mm wide. Links are 2.8mm thick. Band weighs 33 grams.

Price $450.

Short version available for $350 and a Long version is $495.

U.S. shipping/tracking is $8.99. International buyers please add $60 for Express (arrives in a week).
