Understood, thanks. So I would hazard a guess to say the the original bracelet that was available with this one could have been either the Old Nav or the 423a. I was trying to see if I might possibly get this as original as possible, however I can't be sure.

omi, what is the model number of your Navi?
13022 will mean prior to 2000 and 13322 2000 onwards.
That's the closest you will get without the date code between the bottom lugs.

Understood. I really do appreciate the help on this one. I am not sure why I was so caught up with trying to get the exact original lettering as I really like the cursive script on the 423a! :mrgreen:

423A for sale right now on Chrono24 but I can tell you it is missing one removable link from full size.
Best,
Ron

Ron,
Thanks. I never took a look at that site before, but I just made a deal with one of the other guys that has the 423a for sale on that site. Unfortunately, it does not have the end links, but has the other links and is in mint condition. The AD said they can order end links for the 423a still, but from Switzerland, so that will take about a month to arrive.

If they can order just end links, I don't see why they can't order a whole bracelet.

I wondered about that too. I am surmising it could be a situation where the entire bracelet is considered a stocked, sale item and the individual links as parts' repair. So possibly BUSA could control inventory in that manner so they would keep individual links for repair work, but still have them available if an AD needed them.

Well, it could well be that they still have the end links but no more of the bracelets with the old style clasps.

I did not think of that, but it could be the 22-20 is more popular, so they choose to stock only that sizing going forward.
