    Greetings. New-ish here. Lost my old login info. Longtime watch netizen,
    formerly on staff at TZ.

    I have bought and sold and repurchased the Mark 15 more times than any sane
    person would, and am poised to take delivery of yet another.

    Unfortunately the inbound example comes without a bracelet. My preferred
    version is the old beads of rice style, ca. 2000.

    I've reached out to the Concierge. I've scoured C24. I've emailed several

    Just wondering if anyone can suggest a source I may not have considered.

    Many thanks!

    So you're talking of this awesome beauty. I can understand that you love it.
    Was my first IWC watch in 2001 with the newer bracelet version.

    Until 2000 it was in the catalog with this bracelet. 2001 the newer version
    (Pyramid) was sold.

    I also love the look of this bracelet, wifey has it on her Mk. XII. Ladies.
    But I wonder how the friction-controlled butterfly clasp holds out on the long
    run against unwanted opening, compared to the push-button release newer
    version? (I mean here decades. The mentioned watch of my wife gains very
    rarely wrist time so I cannot decide it at home.)
