    Hi Guys,
    Just looking for some input regarding whether the two bracelets linked below are legit. I have a 166.002 Seamaster (which I understand was also called the "beads of rice" seamaster due to its hour markers) and I am looking to get an original bracelet for it, as best I could tell from internet research, the 1068 is it and these two seem like the less scammy on ebay.

    1. https://www.ebay.com/itm/273322478750?ViewItem=&item=273322478750
    2. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Omega-Ref-...304744?hash=item1a56140ea8:g:CAAAAOSwqVVbNXf4

    The top one looks too clean for a bracelet from the 60's (not actually sure when/if they stopped making these but Im looking for the original). The second one is a bit wrecked and neither has the correct layout Ive seen on other auction on the clasp (1068, 12, Omega) etc.

    Feedback much appreciated, if any trusted member has what Im looking for, please PM me with your item and links to your reputation thread.

    Attached pics of my baby.

    Thank you!

    Pablo.

    Both look legit to me. First one is pricey, second one could be a good restoration project if you have a buffer and some polyamide tape.

    Thank you for your feedback. I wonder if you could recommend a source where I can read up on the 1068? Can't find anything online. Either way, thank you for taking the time to reply, I feel more comfortable buying one now.

    Pablo.
