This is the watch as I found it at the pawnbrokers. Of course I removed the bracelet immediately, but did take this pic first. Whoever had owned the watch before didn't recognise it's true value. I have Jonathan's end pieces en route so it will get a much better look.

I know that's not what the purists recommend, but I think it will work OK.

with the 22mm super oyster and solid end links. Works well, IMO:

I have an old (relatively) Oyster bracelet that came off a 7T32. It's 22mm but only tapers to 20mm. I will give it a polish to remove the small scratches and think it should go quite well. This doesn't have the push-button clasp, just the double lock.

You can always replace the clasp. Harold has some nice ones with 4 adjustment holes which are relatively inexpensive and good value, IMO.

I'll see how it goes, but I thought the older clasp was probably more in keeping with the watch. Those two hole clasps don't always give satisfactory adjustment though.

No, the 4 holes ones are pretty good, though

Why, because it's an old bracelet? Well, it's an old watch. That bracelet will polish up like new, the watch doesn't need a brand new oyster bracelet. If you want an anology, it's more like putting wire wheels on a sports car.

i tried a 19mm and just to skinny so now using this modified Rolex replica which was 20mm and better but i think a 22mm Oyster with the correct end pieces as many have done would/is perfect. I just can't seem to get on with rubber (hence 5 grown up kids !! but thats another story) but i do think when you see the 6105 with such as a waffle on in a photograph it looks really good.
