Regarding the 2-tone polished stainless steel "bullet" bracelet, with the gold accent ringlets...
How many of the gold ringlets, total, should there be?
Are they gold, gold tone, gold plated, or gold filled?
I believe I saw 18K mentioned, somewhere, but I'm not sure where.

I've also noticed some 20 mm Rouleaux bracelets have a double-wide (about 16 mm) deployment "butterfly" clasp, while others are single-wide. Why the variation?

What does ACIER INOX mean, on the clasp?

I'm considering fitting the above-mentioned bracelet, on a Breitling reference model 1451 (820.4) chronograph.

Thanx for your time.

Don't recall how many links there should be, but acier inox is short for acier inoxydable, French for Stainless Steel.

The later rouleauxs were rolled gold (a 20 micron sheet laminated to a steel base), earlier ones may have been gold plate, I don't remember.

I have seen anywhere from 5, to 8 pairs (as in this photo) of the gold ringlets at each end, depicted on Rouleaux bracelets.

Was there a 22mm version of the Rouleaux? If so will it fit a navitimer?

Rouleaux was for what is now Windrider and I don't think that there were any 22mm lugs in that range at the time so likely not. Because the endlinks are straight the fit shouldn't be an issue from watch to watch.
