FS: Rare Long Length vintage 20mm Beads of Rice band NOS 1960/70

Very scarce vintage watch accessory to find, a Long Length stainless steel Beads of Rice vintage watch bracelet with 20mm curved ends. Coveted item for many vintage chronographs and dive watches featured here at CT. New Old Stock 1960s/70s original vintage item. The length is 7 1/8 inches (18cm) fully extended and sizes down in increments with the adjustments in the clasp to 6 1/2 inches (16.5cm). Add a good sized watch head, and this will fit wrists up to about 8 3/4 inches (21.3cm). You can shorten it by removing links, which is easy to do. Perfect gradual taper of the links out from the 17.3mm wide clasp to the 20mm ends makes a great transition to a large watch on a big wrist. Has standard curved ends to fit most 20mm standard curve lugs watch models. Back of clasp is signed only "Stainless Steel." Difficult item to find with wider 20mm wide ends, especially as NOS, and rarely seen in a Long Length version like this.

CT price is $395. That is a special discount from $475 at

U.S. shipping/tracking is $6.99. International buyers please add $34.99 for Registered First Class delivery (delivery in 12-15 days) or $59.99 for EMS Express (arrives in 5-7 days).
