Good opportunity to increase the wearability and value of your vintage watch by adding an NOS bracelet or use one on a newer watch. I now have 11 styles available, 8 with generic clasps and 3 styles with Movado signed clasps.
These NSA bracelets are vintage Swiss Made steel bracelets that originally came on many of the most famous 1960s and 1970s watches.
Each bracelet comes in new condition in its original NSA box and packaging. These are NOS bracelets made by the Swiss company NSA, which besides the Movado ones shown, also made the bracelets on many models of Heuer, Breitling, Longines, Jaeger-Lecoultre, Favre-Leuba, Zenith, Roamer, Sinn, Eterna, Movado, Zodiac, Fortis and Rado. Movado, Heuer and other watch brands just replaced the clasp.
(At the bottom of the ad, a variety of photos show these bracelets on a Heuer Autavia, Breitling Chrono-Matic, Zodiac Sea Wolf, Favre-Leuba Deep Blue and other watches.)
These bracelets are often featured on the large vintage chronographs and diver's watches in their original advertising in the 1960s and '70s. Look at the photos at the bottom of this ad to see several examples of these bracelets on watches such as Zodiac, Breitling, Favre-Leuba, Roamer and Enicar.
NSA stands for Novavit SA, as signed on each bracelet’s box.
SIZE: All of the bracelets have 20mm straight ends, but by filing the 20mm ends, these bracelets will easily fit 18mm and 19mm watches. The width of the bracelets’ links are 18mm, but the ends are 20mm as shown in the close-up pics, making the bracelet fit well on watches 18mm to 20mm. Each bracelet measures 6 ¾ inches lying flat. Holes for spring bars are 2mm in diameter. Every link is removable for fine adjustment capability for a perfect fit.
EXTRA LINKS OR END PIECES If you have a large size wrist, ask about purchasing extra links. They are available for every style shown. Extra end pieces are also available for some styles, in case you want to be able switch the same bracelet between an 18mm watch and a 20mm watch.
