Increase the wearability and value of your new or vintage watch by adding a high-quality Swiss-made bracelet. I have just one each left of several styles of these NOS bracelets, so don’t miss your chance to score one.
These NSA bracelets are vintage Swiss Made steel bracelets that originally came on many of the most famous brands in the 1960s and 1970s. They have special “spring-loaded” clasps meant to flex a bit during the day as you wear them, a really unusual feature.
Each bracelet comes in new condition in its original NSA box and packaging. I now have 11 styles available, 8 with generic clasps and 3 styles with Movado-signed clasps. These are NOS bracelets made by the Swiss company NSA, which besides the Movado ones shown, also made the bracelets on many models of Heuer, Breitling, Longines, Jaeger-Lecoultre, Favre-Leuba, Zenith, Roamer, Sinn, Eterna, Movado, Zodiac, Fortis and Rado. Heuer and other watch brands just replaced the clasp.
(At the bottom, look for a variety of photos showing these bracelets on a Heuer Autavia, Breitling Chrono-Matic, Movado Datron, Zodiac Sea Wolf, Favre-Leuba Deep Blue and other watches.)
These bracelets are often featured on the large vintage chronographs and diver's watches in their original advertising in the 1960s and '70s. NSA stands for Novavit SA, as signed on each bracelet’s box.
LENGTH: Each bracelet measures a generous 6 ¾ inches lying flat. Every link is removable for fine adjustment capability for a perfect fit.
SIZING: All of the bracelets have 20mm straight ends, but by filing the 20mm ends, these bracelets will easily fit 18mm and 19mm watches. The width of the bracelets’ links are 18mm, but the ends are 20mm as shown in the close-up pics, making the bracelet fit well on watches 18mm to 20mm. Holes for spring bars are 2mm in diameter.
EXTRA LINKS OR END PIECES: If you have a large size wrist, ask about purchasing extra links. They are available for every style shown. Extra end pieces are also available for some styles, in case you want to be able switch the same bracelet between an 18mm watch and a 20mm watch.
