    Michael Young would charge $250, as it's a two-tone bracelet. Wait time could be considerable.

    I've restored bracelets for OF members for the cost of postage and parts, here. Michael's shop has skills way beyond mine for badly stretched/abused bracelets, but this 1506 looks like it just needs a new spring and a light polish. PM if interested.

    Its defineltly repairable but needs lots of work. Also it seems like no one else has noticed that the bracelet is missing 9 spring links out of 10 :eek:
    IMHO this is a good fit for someone who wants to part it out. Too expensive to fix once you include the missing parts.

    Complete versions of this bracelet came with 5 sprung links on each side. Very few of them offered on eBay (and such) have all 10. With only one (broken) sprung link, though, this particular bracelet would be best for a small-wristed person. Parting it out is dubious, as the most popular parts are clasp (one sold on eBay recently for $1,000) and sprung links.

    These bracelets are supposed to have 26 links in total. 8 fixed links on each side plus 4 spring links on one side and 6 spring links on the other side. The first links on each side of the clasp are the spring links. Thats the 9 links the bracelet is missing.

    It is perfectly repairable, can be re-springed, tight up to reduce stretch, and if you wish so you can have it refurbished, as for some extra stretch links you might need to size it, you can also source and buy them separately.
    Stamped as 4th Quarter 1966 can suit period correct a speedmaster 105.012 or 165024 Seamaster300 easly.
