Re: Heuer NSA strap inquiry
In Response To: Re: Heuer NSA strap inquiry ()

Hello Niko - as Stephen states, the only one you can be certain of is the bracelet shown in the relevant years' catalogues.
Having said that, we know sometimes Heuer liked (or did not really opposed to) mixing and matching. From my own experience a remarkable example on bracelets is the latter day, L5100-based Carrera in stainless steel (ref. 510.523). When I owned it, I agonized at first that the supposedly legit bracelet is one in jubilee style, but by far the vast majority of those found "in the wild" are with a very different bracelet, with thick plain elements (called "brick"-style if memory does not fail me). Mine came with the latter, and sooner than later I learnt to live with it and enjoy the watch.
So in the end, remember the watch is first of all its head - and by the way the bracelet shown in the picture you posted may not the official one but it does suit the watch very well.
