Stainless steel bracelets in the 40's/50's

Hello everyone,

As I'm looking for a new steel band for an early Vajoux 23 chronograph, I checked the 40's and 50's Heuer catalog here on OTD to see what type of bracelet(s) were orignally ment for my type of chrono but all the watches shown in the catalogues only are presented on leather straps.

Was it unusual to wear a watch on a s/s bracelet in the 40's and 50's? Were the s/s bands sold during this period "generic" ones (not specific to Heuer watches) or is there any other reason I'm not aware of?

Thanks in advance and have a great weekend,
