Default What bracelet came on this 7005-8159 (and where can I find one)?

Hi!

Anyone know what bracelet came on this gold 7005-8159? Maybe one of you has an old catalog with a photo? Google hasn't been much help. Seems like everyone put stretch bands on these back in the day. Probably the same folks who put linoleum over all those beautiful hardwood floors.
Obvious follow up: where can I find one?

Thanks!

Hello bradurani,

Don't know if this is of any help; I had a 7005-8150, which is the same case as yours but in stanless steel. The original bracelet is a stange slabby affair:-




The previous owner had filed away the endlinks for some reason (as visible in the pics) but the guy I sold it to managed to find a NOS bracelet for it. Could be tricky in gold though.

Good luck with the hunt.

This is super helpful.Thanks! There's no way I'll find it gold, but at least I can find something in the same style and stay true to the spirit

I might have something that’ll work. When I’m back from vacation, I’ll check my bracelet box.

Ahh, sorry, I just checked the bracelet I have on my wife's 7005-8150 (same case, but steel), and it doesn't fit.
