FS: Get the BoR vintage look on your 19mm Heuer Carrera CV2111-0

Many of our favorite 19mm lugs vintage chronograph models can be challenging to strap. Why not get the look shown here with a 19mm vintage New Old Stock beads of rice band from the 1960s/70s. Looks great on the Tag-Heuer Carrera CV2111-0 with the wider 19mm lugs than the original 18mm lugs on the 2447 Carreras. Whether you're frustrated hunting for a GF Gay Freres band or just want a vintage look on your T-H Carrera or Skipper reissue, this band will suit your watch. The money you save can go towards your next watch purchase. Especially great option for your Heuer Autavia 2446 Jochen Rindt model. The ends on this bracelet are a near-perfect match for the Heuer HL ends that would cost you much, much more to buy alone.

Five-row beads style BoR. New Old Stock viintage item c. 1960s/70s. Signed on the back of the clasp just “100% Stainless Steel.” Great placeholder option until an original band comes along, then a useful collection piece to move to another 19mm watch.

STANDARD LENGTH VERSION: Length is 6 1/4 inches (15.8cm) fully extended and sizes down to 5 3/4 inches (14.5cm) with the adjustments in the clasp. You can remove links to make it shorter. Clasp is 17.2mm wide. Links are 3.5mm thick. Band weighs 35 grams.

CT discounted price is $425.

SHORT VERSION: Length is 5 3/4 inches (15.8cm) fully extended and sizes down to 5 1/4 inches (13.3cm) with the adjustments in the clasp. Price is $395.
