    Hi guys!
    I'm a new member to this great forum. My first question is about the stainless steel bracelet 1040.
    Short background....I inherited a Speedy 145.022-69 from my father 20 years ago. By that time it was equipped with the 1040 bracelet with 734 end links. As you are perfectly aware of, this was a wrong combination in many ways.
    I managed to get a hold of a 1171/1 with 633 end links, which is a more suitable combination, even though a 1039 would have been the perfect choice.
    I know that the 1040 bracelet is used with the Constellation (168.017, 168.0056 and others...), but then with the 518 end links. But, can anyone tell me to which case references the end links 734 were used?

    Many thanks in advance!

    Are you sure it wouldn't be used with a C case Connie? You wanna send it to me and I'll try it?

    Looks like it would fit many round case Constellation and Seamaster models. May even fit the straight lug Speedies.

    Your Connie is 18mm, does it mean all other Constellations and Seamasters must have 18mm?
