Re: Research: Heuer (Autavia?) Ladder DBGM Bracelet

Hi Peter, hi Patrik,

apart from the german word "verstellbar" (adjustable), another hint that this type of bracelet is connected to the German market is the embossed term "DBGM".

It's the abbreviation for "Deutsches Bundes-Gebrauchsmuster", a term from german patent law and similar to a patent (often referred to as the "small brother of the patent").


: Hi Peter,

: being the seller of the bracelet I can start by adding the little
: info that I have. I saw the bracelet type the first time on a
: Viceroy sold by one of the larger auction houses (canĀ“t
: remember which one) a couple of years ago. It was then described
: as a bracelet unique to the German market. In total I have had
: four of them and all have been bought from Germany, could be a
: coincident of course but it definitely points at being more
: common on the German market at least.

: Best,
: Patrik
