I recognize some of these! From a 1941-42 Montgomery Ward Catalog
Boy! I would sure like to find a cache of these hidden in someone's attic or storage locker...I will keep dreaming!
Not seeing the one I need for my 1970 Chrono "C"
Patience young one, half the free world has heard your cry.........we are looking....we will find one.
Here are a few I have on hand. This is by no means inclusive!! Some are a pretty good match on the ad.
It looks like you like collecting bands as well as watches...at least I am not the only one...Good luck on your Sky King, It looks like it is going good so far!
Yeah, I figure that if nothing else I will just have to buy, buy, buy until I have the proper watch for each band...
What's the one, top photo second from bottom right?
Looks like rice band with deployment clasp?
Exactly, Beads of Rice with double deployment clasp.
I have one like the one on top (#1). It came attached to a Westfield watch I bought a coouple of years ago.
those bands are nice and adds a that extra touch to an old art deco watch...but in my opinion they are kind uncomfortable to wear...and they aren't really usable...Nonetheless the are really beautiful and look great on any period watch...but you have to be use to them to wear one...i tried that type of band and it just didn't work for me...
They tend to be too narrow for today's tastes but you're right, they do complete the look of a period watch.
easiest way to get into a bar fight, wear one.
Mongo like watch!! Why little man laugh at Mongo....
speaking of bands most of the right aide drug stores in our area (50 mile radius) are selling out their supply of watch bands at an amazing 75% off. some nice some not so nice but a 20 dollar band for 5 bucks might be something the members would want to look into.
A dream? So it would be fun/challanging/expensive to get a watch matched via ads or expertise for every band I have
Harder to get an appropriate band for every watch I have.
easier for me to dream about getting a new crystal for every watch/band I have.
...but for some folks, imagine if they tried to get an appropriate watch/band for every crystal they have....
That thought makes my first dream seem more realistic :)
