SPECIAL DESIGN FEATURES: All NSA men’s bands are 6 inches long (unless noted otherwise in the description). NSA makes a rare design: Every link is removable with a simple nail type link pin enabling any NSA band to be adjusted easily to any length. Plus, NSA bracelets have special “spring-loaded” comfort clasps meant to flex 1/8 inch as you wear them for perfect comfort.
HISTORY OF NSA SWITZERLAND: Also known as Novavit S.A., NSA made the bracelets on many models of the most collected brands in the 1960s through the early 1990s. The company closed down 25 years ago and the stock is disappearing quickly. These bracelets originally came on brands such as Heuer, Breitling, Doxa, Jaeger-Lecoultre, Favre-Leuba, Aquastar, Zenith, Hamilton, Eterna, Zodiac, Fortis, Rado, Roamer, Certina and many others. You will see these same bracelets on many famous watch models bearing the logos of Heuer, Breitling, Zodiac, Rado and Zenith --- companies that just added their logo to the clasp.
