Have Questions About Your Vintage Oyster Bracelet?

Hey Guys:

I found this nice history of the Oyster Bracelet over on HODINKEE...

It has some great photos and even a nice reference chart for your files...

I am not sure it is entirely correct unfortunately.
For instance, they have a 9316 bracelet listed and that has never existed as far as i know. The only difference between the Submariner and Sea Dweller bracelets then was the end links, 280/380 versus 285/385. And later on when the 93150 bracelet was introduced they had 580 and 585 end links. The 93160 was not introduced in 1978, it was much later in the 80s.
