Good job on finding that with a bracelet. That bracelet is really nice IRL.

I have also posted more detailed pictures of the insides of the watch underneath the spoiler tags. I am leaning towards the middle strap or the second in from the left.

Love Dornbluth, seriously considering putting in an order for the 99.3 or 99.4 in stainless steel. I'd go with second strap from left. Also, not crazy about the white stitching on the strap.

If anyone knows of a reliable watch service that can work on a Martin Braun watch please PM me. Thanks.

Nice find indeed, but that bracelet always strikes me as being effeminate.

Picked this watch up today. I'm getting old, so thought I may as well go for gold. I'm loving this GP:

Agreed on the straps, I went back through the pictures from Dirk and realized that I could also get any of those straps without the contrasting stitching. I went with the second from the left without the contrast stitching. If I had a little more $$$, I probably would have gone with the 99.2, I find the dial on the 99.3 a bit cluttered for my taste.

Does anyone know where I might find a replacement bracelet for an old JLC Memovox? I've inherited my grandfather's JLC but it only has a strap and I'd prefer a bracelet. Thanks.259

The first place I would look is JLC and see if they have any NOS bracelets around. If that fails your next best option is vintage watch shops.

Doesn't have to be an original even. Just something that fits and looks good.
