    FREE: Endura branded SS Flex bracelet

    Here's a bracelet that would be great for your vintage Endura branded watches. Marked "Endura" "Stainless Steel" and "Japan".
    15.5mm wide end pieces.
    135mm long when unexpanded.
    Looks like there are two plates missing to cover a couple of rivets.

    I hate these flex bracelets. They always seem to bit me several times a day. But they sure became popular in the 50s... I am amazed at the number of vintage that still have them today.

    ... impossible to fix too (or so it seems).

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    good-quality expansions can be very comfortable. the inexpensive expansions gave the good ones a bad rap, it seems.

    Eeeb: I'd have to disagree with you on both counts.

    I find them very comfortable and if you can find matching parts (a problem with all vintage things), most can be repaired with a pair of pliers and small screwdrivers.

    If someone could find a bracelet with matching flex links, you could probably pop off two of the caps and use them to cover the exposed rivets on this one.

    I know that not many collectors focus on Endura watches, but if there is someone who does, it might be nice to have a matching bracelet.

    This particular one has a unique scaled design that I haven't seen on any other bracelets. Each "scale" is a separate peice so they flex like (I imagine) scale armour would.
