    Advice re Swiss made stainless steel expanding bracelet

    First posting to this forum.

    This expanding band came with a recent 1950 Omega that I bought at my local Sunday market. It has springs in each link and unsurprisingly some are weak and not working properly.

    My questions are;

    1. Is this band contemporary with the watch?
    2. I am thinking of refurbishing it. It it worth while?

    Many thanks.

    The bracelet is made by Henry & Cie of Geneva. Here is an advertisement from 1946. Cheers from the cellar

    I would certainly consider refurbishing it, if nothing else for the heritage and uniqueness of the bracelet, IMHO.

    Yep that's what I think - and I like trying to fix things that don't work properly.
