    Hey guys,

    since I have a Transitional Speedy, I love to read here in this forum. :thumbsup: Now I begin to get in to the community ;)

    After getting a 1039 bracelet and endlinks, I‘m looking quite a long time for some missing links.
    Now I found some here:

    https://www.chrono24.de/omega/teile...remoon-bracelet-1039-1506-1035--id7271596.htm

    But I don‘t know the Shop and heard some strange things about it.

    Are these links aftermarket, or genuine? They don‘t become narrower (?) like mine.

    What are your thoughts?

    I only need these two links, between the links with springs and without:

    You need expansion links ... yes? If so they are the shorter series near the deployant .

    That bracelet on Chrono24 looks a bit fishy to me. There doesn't appear to be any removable links on either side.

    Only very early Speedy bracelets have links like that. Some of them are stretch links...these don’t look stretchy?

    Again ... Assume what you are doing is trying to size the bracelet. You therefore need 1039 expansion links. I'd not buy this. It wont help you.

    Thanks for your thoughts.
    I‘m looking for the fixed links not the extension ones.
    When you look at the photo, there is a „gap“ between the last fixed link and the link before. So a link with springs isn‘t that what I‘ m looking for.

    My question is: Is this bracelet a genuine one or not? I heard that Chrono-shop has sometimes aftermarket pieces between the genuine ones...

    I would love to open a WTB thread but I haven‘t 200 posts :unsure:
    So maybe someone of you could help me out...

    Someone has removed 2 links from your bracelet from the section one link before the removable links, on my 1039s there are 8 links on each side before the removable links.
    An underside picture would confirm if someone has done this in a nice way or has made a mess of the links.

    That one on chrono24 looks nothing like any of the 1039 / 1506s that I have

    here are some pictures of the backside of my bracelet:

    I already thought that someone removed two links of mine...

    The offered bracelet is nothing for me, when you see the sides of it. The folded parts are to square in my eyes. They don't look like mine at all.

    so what should I do?
    Buying another one, which is complete? Changing the clasp, because mine is stamped right with 1968. Or looking for these two links and give the bracelet to my watchmaker?

    I would definitely look for a complete one.
    Although they are both rare (in good shape) and expensive.
