    Can someone ID this vintage mesh?

    I wanted to try my El Primero 1969, 38mm with the mesh bracelet. Late night scotch infused shopping on ebay resulted in not very well researched purchase. See below:

    Itís 19mm at the lugs. Iím not sure how the curved ends would fit. Just for educational purposes, can someone tell me what watch this bracelet was designed for? Do you think it will work in my application? Thank you!

    What you bought is the bracelet for the vintage 'C' El Primero (1974), ref. 01.0210.415.

    The advantage is that it is an original Zenith bracelet.

    Problem is that it may not not be a good fit or perhaps will not even fit at all for your watch. The ends are only lightly curved.

    The example which you had in mind is a generic bracelet with straight ends which should always fit (although it may look better on a watch with straight ends).

    Thank you! I think the lugs on my watch are longer than the ones on the ‘C’. Would be cool if it did fit, if not - any idea on which 19mm mesh will do? Looks like the closest Staib is 20mm. Do you know who made mesh bracelets for Zenith in 1974 and who makes them now?

    Sorry, I have no idea, who made those bracelets back then or who does now.
