Rules: Postings must be an ad announcing an intent to sell, buy or trade. Full item description and photo(s) must be posted within the message here, not as links to other websites. Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price. Commercial dealers are limited to three unique posts per day. [More...]
This band is very similar to the Beads of Rice Heuer economy bands seen on Autavia and Carrera models. Has the 4x3 row beads pattern with 4 beads at the connection point, so it mates with ends such as HLC, HLD and HLF with 4 slots in them. 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.
Short version also available for $295.
U.S. shipping/tracking is $7.99. International buyers please add $40 for Registered First Class delivery (delivery in 12-15 days) or $70 for EMS Express (arrives in 5-7 days).
