Vintage Cyma Navystar - mesh bracelet?


Recommended Posts

Apologies for my long absence from the forum...now, I have a 1960 or thereabouts steel Cyma Navystar which I inherited from my Dad.  My childhood memory is of him wearing it with a mesh bracelet but it’s now on a modern steel link bracelet which is frankly horrible and scratchy.  And it’s 19mm width is apparently not very usual.

My question is - would it really have been on a 19mm mesh bracelet originally and where might I find something half-way authentic but also comfortable?

If you search "Cyma Navystar advert", there's several shown, all on leather straps. Doesn't look like any bracelet would have been original.

That’s really helpful, thank you.  Looks like it’s time to invest in a nice new leather strap for my Dad’s.  He wore it at work in the merchant navy maybe he switched to a bracelet for more durable wear.
