    Welcome to the nut factory :D

    To post a pic, save it to your desktop, make sure it's not too big (about 3MB is OK)

    Click the camera icon under your post like shown below, select the picture and then click on insert, give it a try

    Cheers

    Jim

    This watch came with a 1170 bracelet with 653 or 120 endlinks. These parts are no longer in production so your best bet is to advertise a WTB on sales forums and wait for something to pop up on eBAY.

    Thanks for the infor Joe. Can the length of the 1170 bracelet be shorten, like those Rolex bracelet? I do have a small wrist and I have a problem with the one that came with the watch. Because of that, got to use a strap for now. ;o(

    The bracelet should have removable links and you can play with the position on the clasp to make it tighter. I don't know exactly how tight it can go.

    Mine came on an 1170 with 631 end links. Many Omega ads of the time picture them on straps.
