Sorry, but I have to say keep looking. There's just too much goshdarn difference in the 2 logos to be the same manufacture(r).
The o p bracelet looks like there's definitely an I between the J and the L = JIL

Those things happen. Back in the 80's and 90's, every watch bracelet seemed to be a clone of the Rolex Oyster, and the President style is STILL
found everywhere...even from my beloved Hadley-Roma! And 10 years ago, Breitling-style bracelets were starting to show up, though not as popularly as the aforementioned ones.
You know what they say: "Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery."

Ya know what? The more I look at those stamped end pieces, the more I'm thinking that this actually IS one of those El Cheapo ''crap brand'' bracelets that tries to mimic the BoR style and look.
I'd go and start a search for something more important to learn about.
