Vintage SEIKO 7005-8022, ca. 1974

I found an original SEIKO STELUX 7005-8022W bracelet ...  
And was of course more then happy to find a 100% perfect fit of the curved end-links. Not really a miracle, since the number 7005-8022W is punched on the inside of the bracelet end-links. I was just lucky to have that exactly matching bracelet in my stock! It was not easy to get the spring bars in, but after they sat properly, the end-links did not rattle at all. A tight fit that will of course over time loosen as with all hollow end-links. In the 70ies SEIKO had obviously subcontracted bracelet manufacturing to STELUX (STL). This is one of those original SEIKO folded-links bracelets from that time. Of course now I am double happy about having not only restored the movement, but also found a perfectly matching bracelet. A bracelet that was made for exactly this case 8022!
