I purchased a bond chrono 2225.80.00 from a co-worker who purchased the watch new in 2008 from an a.d. In las vegas. The bracelet has 826 end links, but the clasp is stamped 1503-825. It's my understanding the proper bracelet for this watch should be the 1504-826. Would omega use a bracelet with a clasp stamped 1503-825 on the chronograph bond watch at any point and put 826 end links on the bracelet? I gave omega the serial number and they confirmed the watch was originally sold to an authorized omega dealer in 2007. The co-worker has the original sales receipt and the watch has never been altered in any way since he made the purchase. Any thoughts?

The only possibility I can come up with is that the "parts bin" factor strikes again.

The 1504-826 bracelet replaced the 1503-825 and when your watch was assembled, someone simply pulled an older bracelet out of the bin. They are very similar in appearance.

Omega's penchant for exhausting the parts in the bin made for some interesting "transitional" 3570.50s with rhodium plated cal 861 movements from the mid-1980s and tritium dials.
