: Hi Guys,
: Someone wrote to me asking what they should
: look for in an original 7077.
: I took some pics of mine. Here they are &
: here are a couple of notes... Some of these
: pics expand if you click on them.
: Firstly the Buckle is VERY short, the Omega
: Symbol hangs over the end of the buckle. You
: can also see that the underside of the
: buckle is longer than the visible part of
: the buckle. To put it in perspective, the
: underside is the same length as a normal
: buckle underside
: The next picture shows the underside. as you
: can ( or rather CANNOT ) see the bracelet
: number is NOT stamped on the underside ( it
: is not stamped anywhere ), however the date
: is on the right side. So my bracelet is from
: Quarter 2 1959.
: So now onto the bracelet itself. Here it is in
: "normal" condition ie unstretched
: At this stage it looks pretty much like a 1039
: ( or 1035, 1506 etc etc ).
: It's only when we stretch the bracelet that we
: see what really makes this bracelet
: See what I mean about "double links"
: now ? I am not aware of any other Omega
: bracelet that have these. NOTE also that the
: outside links are double, not just the
: innner parts.
: Finally, I wrote a small webpage on
: Removing/adding links to a 1039 ( or smiliar
: bracelet . These links are completely
: different. I cannot see a way of
: "opening" them without physically
: bending the metal.
: Maybe that was what the watchmakers did in 1959
: Has anyone noticed how many CK's are sold
: without their original bracelets ?
Your knowledge is something to behold, and what you don't know, you seem to have in a catalog somewhere . . . :)
