    Hello everyone, I've recently purchased an 1960s Omega Seamaster watch which has a vintage flat link (semi-expanding) bracelet attached.
    To be honest I'm no expert (as you've guessed by now) on the flat link bracelets, but I have seen these on vintage Seamaster 300s and Speedmasters. This particular bracelet has 18mm 630 end pieces and the reference on the clasp is 3000.000. Now I've tried searching for this reference to try and find out a bit more about the bracelet but I genuinely can't find any results. I'm now beginning to think that perhaps the clasp was changed at some point.
    Can anyone shed any light on this mystery in as much a is the clasp original and bit more info on the bracelet.
    I have attached photos of the bracelet and the watch it came on. Hopefully someone will be able help further or point me in the right direction to find out.
    Many thanks in advance.

    Looks like that is a 1035 bracelet with a replacement clasp.

    That makes sense now. The research I’ve done indicates that a 1035 bracelet came with 630 end links. I wonder what the clasp on this bracelet ref 3000.000 is for. Can’t seem to find anything.
    Thanks for your reply.

    The clasp does come up for sale once in a while. Keep an eye here on the sales section or on eBay.

    Would you know how much I can expect to pay for one?

    It really depends. You might get lucky and get one for $300 maybe $400.
