FS: Hadley 4x3 NOS Beads of Rice band add HLC HLD or HLF ends

The NOS beads of rice bracelet for sale here is very similar to the Heuer Gay Freres beads of rice bands seen on Autavia and Carrera models. The pictures show it alongside a Gay Freres band and this BoR mates perfectly with original Heuer ends such as HLC, HLD and HLF with 4 slots in them. Spend the thousands you'll save here on your next watch purchase.

This bracelet has the 4x3 row beads pattern with 4 beads at the connection point. The links flare out gently to 19.8mm at the ends, so the transition to the end pieces is perfect. Most BoRs would be too narrow at the ends. New Old Stock vintage item c. 1960s/70s signed on the back of the clasp "100% Stainless Steel Hadley Hong Kong.” More narrow beads than the standard 3x2 row pattern BoRs. Good length is 6 3/8 inches (16cm) fully extended and sizes down to 5 5/8 inches (14cm) with the adjustments in the clasp. You can remove links to make it shorter.

Clasp is 17.4mm wide. Links are 2.8mm thick. Band weighs 33 grams. Comes as shown without end pieces.

Price $275.

Short version available for $225 and a Long version is $325.

U.S. shipping/tracking is $7.99. International buyers please add $85 for Express (arrives in 3-4 days).
