    I recall a few years ago when I was hunting for a vintage Rolex a dealer told me to consider the Constellation. At the time I couldn’t be told anything. Recently, I came to the conclusion my next watch would be a constellation after falling in love with the pie pan dials. I personally favored the shouldered lugs.

    Please excuse the scratches on the Chrystal, I took the photos prior to getting polywatch to it.

    I’m hoping that someone here would be able to identify the bracelet I should be looking for (not a beads of rice but the other style). I will post a photo below.

    Feel free to share your thoughts, good or bad. I’m quite pleased with my choice.

    should I shave my arm?

    -the bracelet in the image below is the one in question. Not sure if there is a nickname for it or a specific style it’s referred to as. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I’ll be contacting a few people in my network to hopefully get on. Not sure if it’s kosher, but if anyone is interested in selling theirs let me know.

    First, welcome to the party! Second, nice catch with the pie pan! Looks awesome.

    If I may, I'd go hunting in the for sale section here or the watch parts for sale section or the bracelet. Never know what you'll find. You'll need 200 posts (I think) to post in Want To Buy. Good hunting!

    Very cool!

    Just got the bracelet, so my next move is getting a period correct buckle 16mm.

    I know there’s a good amount on eBay for 12-20 bucks, but I’m inclined to get one that’s “original”. Not too snobby, but would just prefer to wear a legit buckle.

    I’m gonna look through the pinned post on buckles one of these days to get an idea. Pretty satisfied with this bracelet thus far.
