    I have what I believe to be a correct 19mm JB Champion bracelet for my Evil Nina

    The bracelet has endlinks marked "76". They do not fit the Nina well at all. They are not as long / tall as the correct UG endlinks and as a result there is a big gap between the endlinks and the case. The width of the endlinks and the fit between the lugs is fine

    Does anyone else have this same bracelet / endlinks combination on a Nina?

    Can anyone suggest if there are better endlinks that will work?

    Any advice / suggestions would be appreciated! Thanks and Happy Holidays!!

    (Photos attached. Note these photos are not mine but are exactly same end links and bracelet..)

    Hello,
    The endlinks on my similar UG Champion bracelet are marked "55."

    I believe this bracelet was intended for unison models.

    76 should be 20mm. Some have been ground to fit 19mm lugs. The end links by champion do not fit compax, tri compax or space compax cases. They are a sloppy and move around. Best end links are GF. They are the correct ones. See article about bracelets and end links for info.

    Thanks Diabolik.

    I have looked at the GF endlinks thread here. Unfortunately, and as you probably know, sourcing a GF bracelet with correct endlinks is difficult and very pricey.

    Sourcing just the GF endlinks is also very difficult, and while the correct GF endlinks will fit the case properly, I am not sure they will attach properly to the JB Champion bracelet!!

    I am still hoping there is a solution for the JB Champion bracelet I have which is quite nice. Not easy, this UG stuff ...

    I got one with mark "55" that comes with my Polerouter Sub later exec. fits perfect on the 20mm lugs.

    Thanks for the info...

    So now I am wondering... If as Diabolik says JB Champion end links don't fit Compax or Tri Compax, then which UG model was the 19mm JB Champion bracelet made for???

    Space Compax with JB Champion with "55" end links -- Fits "OK", but not as well as ones I have seen with GF

    Anyone have more info or photos of a Nina with a JB Champion bracelet?

    Thanks!!

    GF end links fit so much better than the champion equivalent ...

    Yes I know.
    *Very difficult and expensive to find GF bracelets
    *I don't think GF end links will fit on JB Champion bracelet? Can you advise?

    Thanks for the info. Some "55" JB endlinks would be very helpful :)
