Afin de pouvoir facilement changer de bracelet pour l'assortir avec la couleur des vêtements par exemple, on souhaite disposer d'un dispositif qui répond aux exigences de fiabilité, de discrétion et de facilité de manipulation. Selon le dispositif selon l'invention, le bracelet comprend à son extrémité une boucle qui vient s'insérer dans une gorge située sur le fond de la montre. Un volet vient obstruer la gorge pour verrouiller le bracelet dans la gorge. <IMAGE>
