    Just fitted a bracelet to this one, not sure I'm convinced and will probably go back to leather but would welcome any opinions?

    Personally I think it would look better on leather , but I would give it a couple of days on the bracelet though as you might get used to the look .

    A particularly lovely watch. I know little about the brand. Where does Helvetia fit into the vintage watch pecking order?

    Seems like it's asking to be treated to a nice leather strap.

    Thanks for the opinions fella's, as it happened it was already back on leather by the time I looked back here. No harm in trying though.

    As for the brand, they have a very rich history which I guess a google should reveal plenty of reading, even made their own in-house movements which are rather beautiful to my eyes. Here's the inside of mine with its lovely guilt cailbre 838 movement...

    Back on its old leather, will treat it to a nicer one some day but can never quite decide which strap would look best on this.
