Can someone post an image and numbers the correct bracelet for a 2915-1 with end pieces, please?
End pieces are no6
Yes... no date code & end links n° 6 with only one notch
Why undated? If the date matches the year of production (usually the bracelet date comes 1 year after production) then a dated 7077 would be fine - no?
Could be they were not stamping date/quarter on these/this early. But happy to be enlightened on that.
I'd need to double check but I think I have '57 and '59 dated 7077's. 2915-1 were 'produced' up to 1959 according to extracts of Omegas archive.
Gino, what are your thoughts on this undated 1035 (note, the ref. is there):
From what I know Omega starts to engrave date code on 1959 (IMHO) . Have ever seen a 7077 dated '57 or '58 ? If you have one to show I'll be happy to learn something new
I have two thoughts on this undate 1035 : a lack of factory or a service bracelet
There are three mark of 7077 (IMHO) :
early 7077 no date code ('57, '58) as above
std 7077 with date code '59, '60
transitional 7077 with date code '61,
where the elastic links pass from the double to the single but not removable
Here is a undated 1039 too.
there are many of them w/o datecode... may be... a service too ?
and then ... ?
I have got a dated 7077 bracelet! It is dated 4/58:
Very very interesting , it's the really first '58 I have ever seen !
Many Tks Erich
Great post, interesting to see the very slight variations.
Out of interest I also have a 1 58 but on my gold 7077
A lot more work went into the Omega symbol on the gold clasp.
Wish I'd known that 'single' expandable links are ok on a 7077 a couple of weeks ago.
There was a complete bracelet up for sale and I recognised the 7077 clasp but thought it must be a 'put together' bracelet.
Price was almost right that I should have picked it up for the clasp alone anyway
Can't even find it as a completed listing now
Any more information on the "not removable" part would be greatly appreciated.
Where does this type of clasp fit into your three marks? I believe this is also classed as a 7077?
I have just sold my 7077 with single fixed sprung links. Dated 1961.
You're quick Michael
I was just coming back to edit my post to say that the first I heard of it was your sale earlier this week and then Gino's post above.
Thanks for the pictures. I can now see how they differ from the 7912/1506/1039 links.
I need to talk to you about some springs. Just got some ongoing car issues at the moment (been at the mechanics over three weeks now ) so having to keep an eye on my pennies.
I can trade you some springs for your car if you like What is it? Ferrari, Porsche, Lambo? if it is a Bugatti veyron I can trade a full set of springs to help you out and take that old thing off your hands.
Seriously, drop me a PM when you are ready, I am always ready to budge on price.
Not a fan of giving details of my car on an open forum that contains details of my most expensive possessions
I will say that your expectations are maybe a tad on the high side
Back to the 7077's.
Who would be our go to guy for repairing this poor attempt at getting to the springs?
Not done by me, I might add.
(date stamped 2, 60 - so fits in with Gino's list above)
Good news is that tucked safely behind that clasp are another two double links
So three one end and two the other. My limited knowledge leads me to believe that's a full set.
The other two definitely need some springs
Would it be best to replace all of them at the same time?
The unfortunate thing is I don't have a correct watch to put it on.
Have these ever been faked? Think I may have just re-found that Mark 3
