    Beads of Rice: where to find?

    Besides trolling Ebay, does anyone have a resource for a vintage style (squat rice bead, vs elongated) 7 bead (across) bracelet? It looks like the original style from Omega / LeCoultre has yet to be revived. Ive seen an old stocki Rowi bracelet, but that's the closest. Any hints? Thanks

    I haven't seen an aftermarket BOR with 7 beads across. I have one from Yobokies that has 5 beads across. Excellent quality and looks great.

    How do you go about ordering these? I've seen this bracelet in several pics, on several different watches, and it looks great!

    "Yobokies" is Harold Ng…very trustworthy and responsive gentleman. I contacted him via his email address [email protected] and he was a pleasure to deal with. I bought my BOR a few years ago so I don't know if that email address is still valid but, if it's not, do a search and it should be easy enough to find.
