    Advice on new 15500 bracelet or other options

    Hi

    I recently bought a ZF AP 15500 from a TD and was wondering whether there are known issues with the bracelet as it promptly fell apart see attached photo.

    The TD has been working to send a new one but I understand that’s not easy at the moment with what’s happening with factories and just been sent something to replace it, that isn’t a compatible bracelet or for a 15500

    You can see from the photo I also have a 15400 on a rubber b strap because the 15400 clasp broke I’ve had that ages

    My question is, is it easier to find a 15400 clasp or a new ZF 15500 bracelet ?

    I could move the rubberb strap on to the 15500 and focus on fixing the other one

    Advice from more Knowledgeable members appreciated

    Thanks

    I’m not a “knowledgeable member” but what I can see is that the 15500 is defective and your TD should replace it. There should be no visible pin holes in the first links. This defect alone should suffice for a replacement from the TD. The bracelet came apart because the pin dislodged from the first link and this should have been a fixed pin which is hammered into the link and sanded down to blend with the surface.

    So get a 15500 bracelet replacement from your TD. It’s a manufacturing defect.

        Who is your TD? I can maybe drop him a word.

          Thanks for the offer, your explanation has already been really helpful, I might take you up on it if I don’t get over the line directly but to be fair to him he’s already sent a bracelet just the wrong one, thanks again

            It seems like you were sent a 15202 bracelet instead of 15500..
