Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family").

FS: 19mm Beads of Rice get a perfect fit on your Autavia 2446

Hunting for a GF Gay Freres band can be frustrating. Here's a 19mm option for your Heuer Autavia 2446 Jochen Rindt model. The ends are exactly 19.0mm; you may find your lugs are actually 18.8mm or 18.9mm and light filing might be required to install the ends but you'll be guaranteed a perfect fit. Five-row beads style. New Old Stock vintage item c. 1960s/70s. Signed on the back of the clasp “100% Stainless Steel.”

The length is 5 3/4 inches (14.5cm) fully extended and sizes down to 5 1/4 inches (13.5cm) with the adjustments in the clasp. I can add extra original links to make this band longer with original links and it's even possible to order a custom Extra Long version. Clasp is 17mm wide. Links are 3.5mm thick. Band weighs 35 grams.

Price $235 with free U.S. shipping/tracking as a benefit to OTD customers.

International OTD buyers please add $34.99 for Registered First Class delivery or $59.99 for EMS Express (arrives in 5-7 days).
