Abstract (en)

[origin: EP0784251A1] The attachment for fixing a bracelet to a watch comprises two side flanks (2,3) which includes sockets (33,34) to receive the ends of two bars (11,12) which carry the ends of the watch bracelet (14). The two side flanks are intended to fit along either side of the rectangular watch casing (1) . Additional elements (16,17,24) lie between the watch casing (1) and the side flanks in order to attach the components together. The outer elements of the mounting (24) are received in recesses formed within the side flanks. These assemblies are held together with a series of pins (18,23) in order to allow a pivoting movement when the watch is inserted within the outer frame defined by the two side flanks.
