    I have a 1968 Seamaster Chronograph. The case ref is 145.016.68, it has 20mm lugs.
    I am looking for a bracelet. What should the numbers be on the end links?

    I have the same watch which I purchased new in 1970. It came fitted with a 1116 band and 548 end links. Good luck finding a good band as they seem a bit pricey.

    The 1039/516 was also used at the time.

    Hi mccoy56,
    I looked up 548 end links & the few I found don't look like they will fit my watch, the ends look too curved.

    Hi David,
    Basically the same reply, I looked at 516 end links & the few I found don't look like they will fit my watch, the ends look too curved.
    See pic above of my actual case

    This is correct. :thumbsup:

    The 1116 is the bracelet and 548 are the correct endlinks.

    Apologies Rod. For some reason I thought you had a Speedmaster 145.012-68. Must've read your post too quick.
