FS: Movado Datron beads link Swiss NSA band fits many models

Some of the most popular Movado 1960s/70s chronographs can be difficult watches to strap with a steel bracelet. The pictures below show the combination I just sold a customer for the 18mm crescent curved lugs version, a particularly difficult watch to fit with a period steel band. I have one set of ends to make one more version like this:

Here are some other photos from customers who put this same band on their Datrons that took 20mm straight ends instead.

This is New Old Stock Novavit original Movado NSA band with the Movado tophat logo, made in Switzerland during the 1960s/70s, still in its original box. Stainless Steel vintage Movado chronograph, dress watch or Movado Datron dive watch ultimate vintage band. This is a great opportunity to get a 7-row steel beads link NSA Swiss Movado signed vintage watch bracelet. Smooth, polished links design. Perfect style to offset the large vintage Movado El Primero or Datron divers watch heads, just as this beads style works well with Heuer Monaco chronographs, big Zenith chronos and many dive watches of the time period. One choice of end pieces is included: either 20mm straight ends, the 18mm crescent ends or the standard curved 18mm ends shown below that fit some other Movado chronographs. The links of the band are 18mm wide.

Band length is 6 inches long (15.3cm). Extra links are available to CT members for free if you've got a big wrist and need this band to be longer, or want to be able to include a long band when you sell the watch to attract more buyers. Each individual NSA link flexes, which makes these some of the most comfortable bracelets. This one also has unique 2-piece small NSA spring-loaded comfort clasp, which flexes slightly during the day to keep the band tightness just right on your wrist (shown in photo above). Every link is removable for micro-adjustment of this band’s length by pushing out simple nail-type link pins. These are features even today’s more expensive watch bracelets don’t have.

Price is $325.

SHIPPING: U.S. shipping with tracking is $6.99. International buyers pay $35 for Registered international shipping or $65 for faster EMS delivery.


I have many references here. Thanks - Bill Mahoney (Squinky)
