    Hi All,

    I just got myself a 7912 from Evil Bay and would be grateful for comment on it as to its condition, specifically how loose or stretched (badly) it is. TIA!

    P1 above shows the bracelet at rest.

    P2 above shows the bracelet at rest with the ends pulled horizontally

    P3 is the same bracelet with both ends allowed to 'droop' to its max

    Same bracelet on my 105.002. Endlinks are aftermarket.

    Also, clasp appears to be wrong?

    Yes, Chye is correct. The clasp appears to be of the 1035 or 1039 variety.

    @Chye .... open the clasp to see the inscriptions. The label should tell you

    Thanks guys, very helpful.
    I am pretty happy with it though, and if I find an appropriate clasp, I will have it replaced.

    Are the links solid or folded steel? What is the date on the clasp?
    If the links are solid and the date is, I think 1963 or earlier, then it could quite possibly be a 7912 with a later clasp piece.

    Solid. It says 1/66.
    So the mystery deepens... or it's just a super franken!

    Thanks for the pictures.
    Until 2-3 months ago, I did not even know what a 7912 bracelet looked like.
    Mine's a solid.
