    ID'ing old MRG bracelet links

    2 spare titanium links came with one of my Yahoo Japan MR-Gs, that don't fit any watch I own....

    Can y'all help ID them? They might be really handy to someone!

    Have verified they do not match (or interchange with) MRG-110, MRG-120, MRG-200, MRG-210, MRG-220, MRG-1000, or MRG-1100 links.

    The links are titanium and in pretty good shape. No edge bevels, beveled & polished tongues.

    From stolen Web photos, the closest match seems to be this version of the MRG-122 (can't verify, have never owned a 122...). It's possible they aren't MR-G links, but arrived with an MR-G, and the spring clips and markings match my other vintage MR-Gs.

    Old MR-G links can be impossible to find, so if anyone recognizes these or needs them please let me know. Would pass them along for shipping. If we can ID them but no one needs them at the moment, will post them in the straps/bracelets thread... MR-G bracelets can be heart breakers!

    thanks for your help!

    Re: ID'ing old MRG bracelet links

    Sorry, for such a late answer, but it looks very much like a MRG121 bracelet link. It should be 17 mm wide, a very unusual size for a bracelet indeed. I just got me a stainless steel 121 and I am desperately looking for 1 stainless link as the bracelet is just a bit tight and makes my hand "deaf", if you know what i mean... If you can't do anything with them, we might come to an agreement. Better a titanium link then a "deaf" hand, isn't it?

    Good news and bad news I am afraid.

    The good news is that the links are definitely from an MRG-121T as you say.

    The bad news is that they are now with me as I had a 'tight' 121T and came across this thread and recognised the links. I contacted NeedAG and he very kindly arranged to get them to me.

    So props to NeedAG and this sort of thing helps to keep these vintage watches in circulation and use.

    Well, good for you, as you needed titanium links! Did you use BOTH? I actually need just 1. Since you are also into older MRG's, could you please keep an eye open if you come across an advertisement or single link which I could use? Or even a 17 mm extender? Do you know of a Japanese (favorably English speaking) MRG fan site where I possibly could find a single link maybe? Any help is greatly appreciated! Us vintage MRG fans should stick together! I am also still in pursuit of a complete bracelet in titanium for a MRG 120...
