    Need more pictures of how it attaches to the lugs on the case as well as the clasp to get any decent responses.

    This is the only other image I've seen out there. Hope it helps.

    The first place I saw it was in another forum where the discussion is all in German. I don't speak German, but maybe someone here does and maybe that will provide a clue as well?

    Here's the link - Astromaster Watch Owner Club (AWO) - UhrForum - Seite 28

    I was doing the same research last week as I found the original bracelet a little bit plain, ended up on ebay to look for vintage seiko (LCD) type bracelet as it seems like the most popular choice.

    Okay, I contacted the guy in the German forum named playovation who posted those photos originally. Fortunately he spoke English, here's what he told me,

    "unfortunately, I don't intend selling this watch. But, in my opinion, it's not worth the hassle...
    Even though it looks quite nice on the pictures, the case is quite heavily worn and the chrome is partially gone...
    Regarding the bracelet: mine is one of the cheapest you can find (I think I got that from a discount store called "ALDI" in Germany, so
    you may try your local store). It even did not fit, so I simply added some spare end links I had to file in order to obtain a proper fit.
    You may also search for generic Oyster style stainless steel bracelets on eBay.
    E.g. this offer: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Stainless-Steel-Folding-deployment-watch-bracelet-18mm-20mm-Choice-of-5-styles-/330951646739?pt=UK_Jewelery_Watches_Watches_MensWa tches_ GL&var=&hash=item4d0e415e13

    Best regards,"

    So a somewhat dissapointing conclusion. I knew it was basically an oyster type bracelet, but this one in particular stood out because the tiles all appear to be the same size. A typical oyster has a big center tile with narrower side tiles. That difference really makes this bracelet unique looking to me.

    Oh well.

    I bought a Vintage Seiko bracelet for mine on UK ebay – the same seller have quite a few bracelet selection included oyster type, tbh if you type in oyster watch bracelet there should be lots for you to pick from…

    His site is: have a look at “other items”.
