    I visited my father in law last week and asked him if he still has old bracelets or endlinks.
    He picked up a box and gave it to me...

    Back home I got an heart attack.
    There were more than 100 end links and some I've been hunting for a long time..
    They are for seamasters, speedmasters, memomatic, cosmic... and 1067, 1069, 1098, 1116, 1117, 1125, 1168, 1170,1171,. bracelets. Some are so old that I've never seen any before, like Nb 0, 4, 5, 7, 9, but most are in a new old stock condition. As I've no use of all of them, I did put them for sale on ebay to offer a trip to Paris to my Father in law..

    BUT, I'm going to keep these (and hunt some more 1039, 1506, 7912, ..)

    I saw them on Ebay. Could you figure out if any of them 20mm have a hole for the last bracelet link around 10.5 to 11? Want them!

    20mm endlinks with about 10.6mm holes are 16 and 516, and with 11mm holes are 47 and 640 that fit 1175 and seamaster 300/speedmasters...
    But they are not for sale..

    I know, thanks. That's why I asked if some of the others might fit the measure.

    Can you confirm that the 16 endlinks are 20 mm? I have number 16 on a 19 mm Speedmaster which indicates that mine are adjusted in some way.

    Amazing! Do you happen to have any 653 or 120 in there? If so, I would be happy to sponsor the Paris trip ;)

    I don't, but I think that 653 are still available for about $70 a pair... check your local Omega dealer

    Good golly that's a lot of endlinks. If one man can have that many, I can only imagine what other parts he must have!!
