    • https://postimg.cc/gallery/sR7V594 https://postlmg.cc/Mf8kk288 hi all wondering if anyone could give me some details on gramps watch I’ve been given guardianship of. he was given it as a reward in a sales job many years ago I believe. Have had it serviced and given a new glass. Needs a new strap. Could anyone also guide on where I might find something that suits. Has original box and certificates. See images. Was bought 1962. Movement number is 17499316. Is 9ct Geneve sun second face I believe. Has EL969 and 29T on the original receipt and etched underneath the logo. Has a red  original box and various markings on inside of the back of it.  On the back it says A.L.D think that’s the maker Dennison?Then 969Then 62879 any info about it would be great. Would love to know more about it!        Apologies. I couldn’t add images but there are links to the pics of it. Hope someone can help.  The movement is a 268 Calibre I believe also. 
    • hi chas, got to be honest and say i went the lazy route and bought it done from the guy below on e bay, he also has different styles/ finishes of bracelets , yes this is a version 3  which has intigated lugs / ends (i think version 2 did not but quality was not as good as ver 3 ), so they dont bend much, i have  flat 7.5 inch + wrists and i find i was worried about size, but its fine, while the cut links are sharpe on the outside its really is comfortable to wear ( honestley its been worn since i got it inc wearing to bed) if you have small round wrists it will not sit right for you which the guy in the video had. i am sure you could buy them seperated and put it together yourself, its not complicated and you get all the things req in the kit ( inc screwdrivers,well mine came with them), i only needed to take one link out for mine , if i am honest i have two! bought one before i saw the grey dial version and could not stop the black dial one comming in. lets know if you go for it deano https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/294151028328?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649
