Gentlemen
What is the bracelet ref for this Tudor model number, as would have originally been supplied with the watch?
I thank you

Would have come on a folded 7836 with 380 endlinks. Prob better with 589s though, which came later.

Hope you're felling better!

7638 with 282 endlinks I believe for the year. Later ones I think had 382 ends.

7836 with 380 ends and a Rolex marked clasp.

71xx series ran from approx late 72 till 75-76 depending on what data you rely on. The 382 was on the earlier 7031/7032. 49 out of 50 one owner 71xx series chronos I have seen had 380 end pieces.

The end pieces are a pretty poor fit too. Most guys upgrade to solid bracelets (ref 78360) with 589 end pieces. The 589 end pieces can still be ordered from Rolex thru your authorized dealer.


Cheers!

I posed that question to the RSC here in Melbourne, Aust in regards to 589's and they politely told me that they don't supply them new anymore & referred me to a 3rd party repairer, who then told me that he doubted that Rolex would have any in stock and in any case he would have to send them the entire MC for inspection for them to tell him they were not available... like a merry-go-round!

Finally sourced some through VRF.. good luck!
