The 67-9313 chronograph from the 1970s, known as the ‘Speedy’ was originally sold on a steel bracelet. So far I have not been able to find a clear catalog image so it has been something of a mystery. This is the best I have found!:
Over the last couple of days a guy called Steve, from the USA , and I have been talking about this issue – both of us have white Speedies that came on bracelets thought to be original, so we have given it some thought 🙂
The first point to be made is that the case has been designed for straight ended links. Steve provided this photo, showing how the space between the lugs has been cut out for a straight fitting:
The bracelet on both our Speedies fit this gap snugly:
Interestingly bot our bracelets have a slight dent on the centre of the end link where it presses against the upper case – Steve’s:
I’ve found a few more on the internet with this bracelet, and it appears to be the same style as the catalog image. It’s folded link, with no part number, but our conclusion is that this is most likely the original bracelet…..
With thanks to Steve for his input and photos 🙂
