No, standard Navitimer (A23322) is 431a or 442a (second has raised wings on clasp)

OK I guess my knowledge on this is a lot less that I thought. I was under the impression they were both 22/20 and thought the standard Navi bracelets fit the 01. What is the difference between the standard Navitimer bracelet and the 01 Navitimer bracelet? Am I wrong with the size?

Bracelets have custom endlinks, you can't just order a 22/20 bracelet like you can with a strap, the end links are contoured to the case and the location of the springbar holes.

Thank you for the clarification Roff! You're always the one to answer my questions. Good thing I stumbled on to this forum topic as I plan on getting the Navitimer bracelet for my Navi 01 in the next couple months.

It is, but by the look of thing's I'm starting to doubt it will sell.

Just for clarification, the bracelets are identical, other than the end links. Any Navitimer end link can fit on any 22/20 navi bracelet.

Is 447A also the bracelet for the Navitimer 01 limited edition?

Great board, guys! Nowhere else on the web I found so much expertise...

I second Roff's recommendation. The standard Navi bracelet (with appropriate end links) is the way to go. The only other bracelet option of which I'm aware is the Air Racer, and while I don't hate it like some do, it still seems like an odd choice for such a classic watch.
