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

Hi Darren,

Thank you very much for these infos.



: Hi Marc,
: i am unaware of any Heuer marked bracelets before 1965 where we see
: Heuer commissioning Gay Freres to make the double rice grain
: bracelets we rarely see on the period Carrera's & Autavia's.
: I would be happy to be corrected on this fact as i have myself a
: number of pre 1962 Heuer's. Interestingly we have seen a number
: of WW2 era Flieger style mono & double pusher watches appear
: on bamboo link style Gay Freres bracelets but there is no way of
: knowing if these were provided by Heuer themselves as there are
: no catalogs showing them.

: Here is my 1937 model 358 mono-pusher on a Gay Freres bracelet.

: I hope that has helped - Darren
