FS: Flat-link 1960s bracelets for divers, will take Omega ends

Many 1960s vintage dive watches like the one shown above are difficult to find steel bracelets for because of the deep, extended 19mm wide lugs with a flat connection point. The band shown fits these common 1960s case styles, shared by many divers and dive chronographs. Popular tapered brick links folded-steel bracelet has a satin finish to match most watches. The pictures tell the story. This band has 10mm wide center connection links and is very similar to Omega flat link bracelets from the 1960s, such as the 7912 that I have on my 1962 Omega Seamaster 300 and some Speedmaster bands. Good option if your Omega band is missing, or you want to save that valuable piece from daily wear. You can pair this together with Omega end pieces, which are easy to find. The build quality is equal to Omega bands of the time.

New Old Stock dive watch bracelet from the 1960s. The end pieces come apart from the band and attach by sliding the spring bar through the slot at the end of the band. Good length that will fit many wrist sizes. Fully extended the band measures 6 1/8 inches (15.5cm) and it will size down to 5 5/8 inches (14cm) with the adjustments in the clasp. To make it shorter, it's easy to unfold links and remove them. The links are 2.6mm thick. The clasp is 17mm wide and the links gradually flare out to 19mm wide at the ends. Band weighs 35 grams.

Price is $225.

U.S. buyers pay $6.99 shipping & tracking. International buyers pay $34.99 for First Class Registered shipping or $64.99 for EMS Express.
