    Separated at birth?

    Hmmm..... Enicar Seapearl vs. Bulova Sea King



    On another note check out this beautiful Kreisler double stacked stainless mesh with butterfly clasp from the 70's, it came on the manual wind from the 3 piece meander lot I talked about the other day. For me the nicest vintage bracelet I've found to date in my travels. I so wish it was an 18 it would look killer on the UG Polerouter. It has a great micro adjustment feature, it's huge for a 16mm, the gent must have had a huge wrist!







    Peace,
    Preston

    I really like that bracelet. It looks to be high quality and would have been quite expensive when new. We haven't had a strap/bracelet thread for a while now.

    Can't let that by!
    I got this on my Seiko DX, and have found that this British maker Montal hailed from Birmingham and supplied Rolex and Omega with bands in the early 20th.C. It's a little bashed on the clasp, but the extending rachet works well and the curved end pieces slide off to leave a flat end. 18mm ends but actual beads of rice band is 15mm. Only ever seen one other like it, but that was 9 carat gold. Not sure of the age, maybe fifties?

    Oh yeah bobbee that's sweet!!

    A vintage bracelet thread would be cool! I'll keep "watch" for one, I have four I can show off.
