Hi guys

I am planning on getting the bracelet for my pre-co-axial DeVille (sad that it doesn't get much attention these days with all the new DeVilles out but I still love this classic). It's on the furthest left in the pic. I'd love a rice bead bracelet or the standard bracelet, whatever it is, if anyone can chime in I'd much appreciate it.




This DeVille was purchased sometime 2000-2001 brand new at Frankfurt Airport and I had always meant to get the bracelet for it, I guess now is the time. Ofrei has it for sure but I don't have the case number for reference.
More info: DeVille Prestige Automatic, 37mm, Chronometer. This was on their website as late as this year before replacing it with all the co-ax models. This makes me thinking about getting a co-axed DeVille in the future but I'm not so sure...what do you guys think?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey Glim!

Don't buy a bracelet for that thing! Looks better on a strap anyway.
You gotta have a dress watch and they always look better on a strap.
The DeVille is a great dress watch.

Re: Hey Glim!

Jim,

You obviously are torturing me with your chrono DeVille. It makes mine looks a piece of tin. No lume, no "DeVille" font, no nothing. Why don't I just crush mine...o|

Honestly you're not the first person to give me that advice...i've asked about this before and many have said not to get a bracelet.

The reason I want a bracelet for this is because I think it will give the watch a "jewelled look", something like a men's bracelet that happens to have a watch on it (does that make any sense at all?). Also, my father had one in the 90's and I distinctly remember how nice it looked but he never liked watches so he gave it away to one of his poker buddies after I rejected it when he offered it to me (rebellion). I am still kicking myself.

Anyhow I thought I'd just spice it up a bit to give it more wrist time but thank you for the comments.

Jim...please don't show this watch! It is one I've always wanted to own!! The case alone is pure art. John Wilson.
