Hello All,

I recently bought my first Omega, a Geneve Dynamic from the International Collection. According to the Omega database, it was from 1971-72. Itís funky and just a little different from a traditional watch. Iím really happy with it.

The only problem is I want a steel bracelet, instead of the leather band it came with. It also needs a 20mm bracelet and that greatly reduces the pool. I think the traditional Omega bracelet, is too traditional. I want something on the chunky side and ideally from the 70ís. Ofrei has a few, but they cost more than the watch and look too new.

The only thing Iíve seen is an ad for a watch, with an Omega bracelet with large holes punched in it. No amount of time on the internet has turned one up.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Is this one of the elliptical case Dynamics like this?:

From what I recall, Dynamic bracelets and straps do not utilize the traditional lug/springbar method for mounting to the watch. Instead the rely on the caseback I believe.

Can you post a couple of pictures or a model number? Congrats on the new addition and welcome to Watch Talk!!
