rivet band question November 30 2017 at 9:30 AM Buch (Login Yoram76) VRF Member from IP address 18.104.22.168
Have you ever heard about a 20mm elastic rivet band, with 58 endlinks, rivets as on a european band but no 7206 stamp, and usa clasp dated 71 ?
Does it exist or a Frankenstein ?

Must be a Frankenband November 30 2017, 11:44 AM
Does it have small(USA) or wide (Swiss) middle links?
Are the links solid (Swiss)or hollow (USA)
7206s without that number do exist up to 1963, but certainly not 1971...

Hi, early 7206 (non elastic) rivet bands don't have >>> November 30 2017, 1:19 PM
the 7206 stamp on the first link. The proper ref for swiss elastic is 6636
As for if it is US or Swiss band, the 3 elements of each link are the same size , whereas the Swiss band has the middle element on each link wider.
The clasp could have been replaced with a US type..
