FS: Zenith NOS beads links bracelet for El Primero chronograph

Zenith collectors, here is a rare New Old Stock 1960/70s Swiss Made vintage Zenith stainless steel bracelet with the Star-Z logo. Has a unique, two-piece clasp that comes apart. Available with 18mm, 19mm or 20mm straight ends to fit a variety of vintage Zenith watch models or the new Zenith Heritage chronograph line watches. This one is the smooth, polished beads links pattern used on the Heuer Monaco. One of the most popular NSA styles they produced.

Great original NOS bracelet to complement your Zenith DEFY, Respirator, Pilot, Port Royal Chronometer, El Primero or other Zenith chronograph. If you have a modern Zenith, adding a band like this is a great way to give it more of a classic vintage look.

Band was made by NSA Switzerland, also known as Novavit, maker of some of the finest vintage watch bracelets at the time. Has the NSA trademark spring-loaded comfort clasp, which "gives" by 3/8 inch as you wear it for perfect comfort (your wrist size changes with temperature changes, and this feature compensates for that rather than the band feeling tight or loose during the day). This is a feature that is not found on many much more expensive bands. Every link is flexible and removable with a nail type pin that slides out. Signed NSA Swiss Made. In its original Novavit NSA Switzerland box.

The links and the clasp are 18mm wide, with straight end pieces available in 18mm, 19mm or 20mm. Easy on and off with the clasp style that comes apart in two pieces. Solid Stainless Steel. Measures 6 1/4 inches long (16cm) fully extended. Easy to remove links to make it shorter. Extra links are available for purchase if you need a longer version. Band is 2.5mm thick.

Overall, one of the most comfortable watch bracelets you will ever wear in a links style that will complement anything from a Zenith El Primero to a Zenith dress watch or any of the unusual 1960s/70s models Zenith produced.

Price is $495.

SHIPPING: U.S. shipping with tracking is $6.99. International buyers pay $80 for Express delivery arrives in 3-4 days.
