Gold 1680 w/ factory president bracelet (?)

Hi guys,

I recently encountered a gold 1680 with what was claimed to be a factory president bracelet. I was told it was only released for the Mexico market in the 70's...

Anyone have any more info on this?

(*pardon the quality of the image - I'm still new to resizing for this forum*)

Yes, I have seen publicity shots of the gold GMT on a President and believe it was the same for the Sub. Not common if correct!

Mine is not. Most of the others I have seen are Swiss made as well. Ive seen one DA hall marked which I believe denotes Argentina.
