FS: Omega Speedmaster 19mm or 20mm JB Champion steel mesh bands

I have three of these to offer here, it's been years since I had any. JB Champion USA band for Omega Speedmaster 19mm or 20mm lug models. Also available in the scarce 22mm size as a very popular option for Breitling Navitimer models. New Old Stock 1960s/70s solid stainless steel mesh band. This rare American-made steel sliding clasp vintage bracelet by Jacoby-Bender or JB is the type people like for Omega Speedmaster 321 Pre Pro and 861 Moon Watch models. JB Champion USA made bracelets are sought after because they were worn on early Omega Speedmaster 321 models by astronauts and NASA officials on pre-Moon Speedmaster models in the 1960s, as well as many other Omegas, Bulova Accutron, Bulova Astronaut and many other vintage watches.


Has a two-stage sliding clasp; first time you wear it you slide the keeper piece to set the length of the band. Then it has a quick-release clasp on the other side that quickly snaps the band open or closed to take it off or put it on. These adjust in length from 5 1/2 inches to 7 inches long, so they will fit most size wrists. Clasp has a brushed steel finish. Great quality mesh. Signed "JB Champion Stainless Steel Made in the USA" on the back of the clasp. The mesh at the ends before the spring bar tubes is 17.5mm wide. Bracelet weighs 27 grams.


Price is $325 including U.S. shipping with tracking.


INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING: International shipping to most countries for $39.99 via Registered USPS or $65 for faster EMS Express that arrives in about 5-7 days in most countries.

I have many references here. Thanks - Bill Mahoney (aka Squinky)
