    No, actually both clasps have an overlapping logo. The difference is the back of the buckle.
    - One fits the Apollo Soyouz and fits with a bracelet with 20mm-outer-links.
    - The one fits the Admirality and fits with a bracelet with 18mm-outer-links.
    So my question is which pic corresponds to the Soyouz, and which pic corresponds to the Admiralty?

    According to my research - the bottom one :)

    Searching OF I found a similar question and responce from Kringkily (long standing forum member/collector and seller) :thumbsup:
    https://omegaforums.net/threads/question-about-the-rare-omega-bracelet-1168.6539/

    So I would be inclinded to believe his two pictures are of the correct clasp - no hole on inside

    Also there is a SOLD chrono24 listing for the bracelet claiming it is the original and gives a picture showing what is correct and what is not a soyuz clasp. This agrees with the pictures from Kringkily

    @Stuie @Tubber Thank you very much comrades! In the meantime I had also a 3rd person (one of the 2 Moonwatch Only writers) confirming this.
