But when will you see one again Ian ?

I suppose you have got to take into consideration if the GS is a keeper, if it is you "need" the bracelet but if you might flip it then you still "need" it to sell complete

This WIS lark is a real pain

I've just spent 80 to buy a near-NOS 6139-6000 Stelux President will report back when it's in hand ...

John, I have to get over the thought that for that money (still not finished) I could get another decent watch!

Yes, I’m like a moth to a flame, or fly round s*it, whatever...

Here we go... It wasn't quite NOS there was quite a bit of gunk in the bracelet links... But half an hour of rodding with a pin and ultrasonic bathing gave up this...

Last summer, I payed ~$140 USD for a NOS Stelux H-link bracelet for my newly acquired 6139-6005.

I considered it money well spent, despite the fact that it cost 1/4 of the value of my watch. I had NEVER owned a Stelux before and it was NOS. I admit to being seduced by both of these facts. Adding it to my watch shined a bit of NOS on it.

As your beautiful GS is worth more, I think Gerald is setting your expectations appropriately - you will certainly be in this neighborhood or higher when you finally find a bracelet,
