Abstract

In order to make the actual strap of a bracelet, in particular of a watch strap, exchangeable for the user, the bracelet has on its front and rear side fasteners (1, 1') which are of U-shaped construction in cross-section and are connected to one another by webs (6). The strap (7), which is preferably constructed as a leather strap, extends with its edge portions in these fasteners, supporting itself with its underside on the webs (6). In this case, the fasteners (1, 1') can be divided into links (2, 2') which are connected to one another in an articulated manner. Additionally, the limbs (4) of the U-shaped fasteners (1, 1'), lying on the outside, can be connected by bearers (32) which bear gems (33). The fasteners (1, 2) are aligned so as to converge towards their ends and thus facilitate the insertion of a strap and its withdrawal when being exchanged for another strap. <IMAGE>

Description

Gegenstand der Erfindung bildet gemät Oberbegriff dass Ansprusches 1 ein Armband, insbesondere ein Uhrenarmband, mit einem auswechselbar angeordneten Lederband, das sich mit seinen Randabschnitten in U - förmige Halterungen des Armbandes erstreckt, die durch Stege miteinander verbunden sind (siehe beispielsweise CH-A-325212).The subject of the invention forms according to the preamble that Claim 1 is a bracelet, in particular a watch strap, with an exchangeably arranged leather strap which extends with its edge sections into U-shaped brackets of the bracelet, which are connected to one another by webs (see for example CH-A-325212 ).

Zum Tragen einer Uhr sind Uhrarmbänder bekannt, die aus Metall wie Stahl oder Gold bestehen oder aus einem Gewebe oder aus Leder sowie aus einer Kombination dieser Stoffe. In der Regel sind diese Uhrarmbänder so gestaltet, daß ihre äußere Beschaffenheit nicht veränderbar ist und sich damit nicht wechselnden geschmacklichen Richtungen nach Bedarf anpassen lassen.To wear a watch, watch straps are known which consist of metal such as steel or gold or of a fabric or of leather and of a combination of these substances. As a rule, these watch straps are designed in such a way that their external condition cannot be changed and thus they cannot be adapted to changing tastes.

Nach der GB-A-230 986 ist ein Armreif bekannt, dessen äußere Beschaffenheit zwar veränderbar ist durch den Austausch eines auswechselbar angeordneten Lederbandes. Bei diesem Armreif sind die seitlich angeordneten etwa U-förmigen Führungen für die Seitenränder des Lederbandes durch einen steifen Boden miteinander verbunden, der mit Fenstern versehen sein kann. Wenn ein solcher Armreif beispielsweise aus Gold besteht, so ist der Materialaufwand für die Halterung des Lederbandes verhältnismäßig groß, wobei hinzukommt, daß der das Band unten unterstützende Boden für den Betrachter nicht sichtbar ist. Für die Halterung einer Uhr ist ein solcher Armreif jedoch nicht geeignet, weil er über die Hand hinweg auf den Unterarm bzw. auf das Handgelenk aufgesteckt werden muß und demzufolge einen so großen Durchmesser aufweisen muß, daß sich die Uhr auf dem Handgelenk verdrehen kann. Gleiches gilt für steife Armreifabschnitte entsprechend der CH -A-325 212, die eine Anordnung zeigt, bei welcher die beiden seitlichen U- förmigen Führungen für ein austauschbares Band durch einen durchgehenden Boden miteinander verbunden sind und demzufolge steif sind.According to GB-A-230 986, a bangle is known, the external nature of which can be changed by replacing an interchangeably arranged one Leather strap. In this bangle, the laterally arranged, approximately U-shaped guides for the side edges of the leather strap are connected to one another by a rigid base, which can be provided with windows. If such a bangle is made of gold, for example, the material required to hold the leather strap is comparatively large, with the fact that the bottom supporting the strap is not visible to the viewer. However, such a bangle is not suitable for holding a watch because it has to be placed over the hand on the forearm or on the wrist and consequently must have such a large diameter that the watch can twist on the wrist. The same applies to stiff bangle sections in accordance with CH-A-325 212, which shows an arrangement in which the two lateral U-shaped guides for an interchangeable band are connected to one another by a continuous bottom and are consequently stiff.

Nach der US- A-3,680,304 ist zwar ein Gliederband bekannt. Bei ihm besteht jedoch nicht die Möglichkeit beispielsweise ein Lederband zum Zwecke seines Austausches durch alle Glieder auswechselbar hindurch zu ziehen.According to US-A-3,680,304 a link belt is known. However, he does not have the option, for example, of pulling a leather strap through all the links so that he can exchange it.

Aufgabe der Erfindung ist es, ein flexibles Armband, insbesondere ein Uhrenarmband zu schaffen, das sich durch die Austauschbarkeit eines wesentlichen, dem äußeren Bild ein kennzeichnendes Gepräge gebenden Bestandteiles unterschiedlichen Geschmacksrichtungen in Form und Farbe anpassen läßt.The object of the invention is to provide a flexible bracelet, in particular a watch strap, which can can be adapted to different tastes in shape and color by the interchangeability of an essential component that gives the external image a characteristic embossing.

Gemäß der kennzeichwerden Teil des Anspruche 1 ist dafür vorgesehen, daß die Halterungen terungen in Glieder unterteilt sind, die durch Gelenke miteinander verbunden sind, welche aus Laschen bestehen, die auf der Innenseite der Mittelstege zweier Glieder mit ihren beiden Enden befestigt sind.According to the characterizing part of claim 1, it is provided that the mountings are divided into links which are connected to one another by joints which consist of tabs which are fastened on the inside of the central webs of two links with their two ends.

Eine derartige Ausbildung eines Armbandes erlaubt es auch einem technisch oder handwerklich nicht besonders erfahrenen Träger des Armbandes ein ursprünglich vorhandenes Lederband gegen ein anderes, äußerlich sich in der Farbe, Form oder im Material unterscheidendes Band auszutauschen, um veränderten Moderichtungen nachkommen zu können oder sich in der Art der Darstellung besonderen Ereignissen, Vorkommnissen oder gesellschaftlichen Veranstaltungen anpassen zu können. Dieses bietet sich durch die Möglichkeit, ein Lederband einer vorgegebenen Farbe gegen das einer anderen Farbe auszutauschen wie auch ein Band beispielsweise aus Nappaleder beispielsweise gegen eines aus Krokodilleder oder einer anderen Oberflächenstruktur auszutauschen, darüber hinaus aber auch gegen ein anderes Band beispielsweise aus Silber oder Gold bzw. ein Band aus einem anderen Material als Leder.Such a design of a bracelet also allows a technically or technically not very experienced wearer of the bracelet to exchange an originally existing leather strap for another strap that differs in color, shape or material, in order to be able to comply with changed fashion trends or in the To be able to adapt the type of presentation to special events, occurrences or social events. This is possible due to the possibility of exchanging a leather strap of a given color for that of another color, as well as exchanging a strap made of nappa leather for example against one made of crocodile leather or another surface structure, but also for another strap made of silver or gold or a tape made of a material other than leather.

Die auf der Außenseite liegenden Schenkel der U-förmigen Halterungen können Ansätze tragen, die als zusätzliche Halterungen für das auswechselbare Lederband bzw. Abstützungen desselben wirksam sind und zu einer vorteilhaften dekorativen Wirkung beitragen.The legs of the U-shaped brackets lying on the outside can carry lugs which are effective as additional brackets for the exchangeable leather strap or supports thereof and which contribute to an advantageous decorative effect.

Stattdessen oder zusätzlich können die auf der Außenseite liegenden Schenkel der U-förmigen Halterungen durch Träger miteinander verbunden sein, die im Abstand zueinander stehen und geeignet sind, neben einer Führung des Lederbandes als Träger einer oder mehrerer Schmucksteine zu wirken, durch welche die gesamte Aufmachung des Armbandes gesteigert wird.Instead or in addition, the legs of the U-shaped brackets lying on the outside can be connected to one another by carriers which are at a distance from one another and are suitable to act as a carrier of one or more gemstones in addition to guiding the leather strap, through which the entire presentation of the Bracelet is increased.

  • Figur 4 : Einzelteile des Endabschnittes eines Armbandes;
  • Figur 5 : die Teildraufsicht auf ein Uhrenarmband
Further features of the invention form the subject matter of the subclaims and are explained below with reference to a drawing of exemplary embodiments. The drawing shows:
  • Figure 1 : the partial section of an articulated watch strap in a perspective view;
  • Figure 2 shows a cross section through the tape of Figure 1;
  • Figure 3 is a side view of two adjacent links;
  • Figure 4 : Individual parts of the end portion of a bracelet;
  • Figure 5 : the partial top view of a watch strap

Das in den Figuren 1 bis 5 wiedergegebene Uhrenarmband besteht aus zwei Halterungen 1 und 1′, von denen die vornliegende Halterung 1 an der Randseite liegt, die der Hand des Trägers zugewandt ist, während die hintere Halterung 1′ auf der gegenüberliegenden Seite liegt.The shown in Figures 1 to 5 watch band consists of two brackets 1 and 1 ', of which the front bracket 1 is on the edge side facing the hand of the wearer, while the rear bracket 1' is on the opposite side.

Die Halterungen 1 und 1′ sind in einzelne, gelenkig miteinander verbundene Glieder 2 und 2′ unterteilt, die in der Aufeinanderfolge abwechselnd aus Gold und Stahl bestehen.The brackets 1 and 1 'are divided into individual, articulated members 2 and 2', which alternately consist of gold and steel in the sequence.

Die einzelnen Glieder 2 und 2′ sind im querschnitt U-förmig gestaltet, wobei der beim Tragen des Armbandes außenliegende Schenkel 4 jedes Gliedes über den Mittelsteg 3 mit dem innen am Arm anliegenden Innenschenkel 5 unter Freilassung eines Abstandes für die Aufnahme eines Lederbandes 7 verbunden ist.The individual links 2 and 2 'are U-shaped in cross section, the outer leg 4 of each link when wearing the bracelet over the central web 3 with the inner leg 5 lying against the arm while leaving a clearance for the recording a leather strap 7 is connected.

Für die Einhaltung eines vorgegebenen Abstandes zwischen den Halterungen 1 und 1′ sind Stege 6 vorgesehen, welcheim Abstand zueinander stehend, die Innenschenkel 5 einzelner Glieder 2 und 2′ miteinander verbinden. Diese Stege 6 sind von unterschiedlicher Länge insoweit, als dadurch ein konvergenter Verlauf der Halterungen 1 und 1′ in Richtung auf den Verschluß 11 des Armbandes gegeben ist, der den Einschub eines Lederbandes 7 von der dem Verschluß 11 abgewandten Seite her erleichtert.To maintain a predetermined distance between the brackets 1 and 1 'webs 6 are provided, which are spaced apart and connect the inner legs 5 of individual links 2 and 2'. These webs 6 are of different lengths insofar as this results in a convergent course of the brackets 1 and 1 'in the direction of the closure 11 of the bracelet, which facilitates the insertion of a leather strap 7 from the side facing away from the closure 11.

Die einzelnen Glieder 2 und 2′ sind jeweils durch zwei Glieder verbindende Laschen 8 miteinander gelenkig verbunden, welche durch Nieten 9 und 9′ (Figur 3) auf der Innenseite der Mittelstege 3 an ihren Enden drehbeweglich gehalten sind.The individual links 2 and 2 'are each articulated by two links connecting tabs 8, which are rotatably held at their ends by rivets 9 and 9' (Figure 3) on the inside of the central webs 3.

Die an den als eine sogenannte Doppelfaltschließe ausgebildeten Verschluß 11 angrenzenden Glieder 2 bzw. 2′ sind jeweils mit einer von außen her zugänglichen Schraube 10 bzw. 10′ versehen, um diese Glieder vom Armband ablösen zu können und dadurch das Armband zu verkürzen, wenn derartiges durch die spezielle Größe des Handgelenkes vom Träger als Anpassung zweckmäßig erscheint.The adjacent to the formed as a so-called double folding clasp 11 links 2 and 2 'are each provided with an externally accessible screw 10 and 10' to be able to detach these links from the bracelet and thereby shorten the bracelet, if such due to the special size of the wrist of the wearer appears appropriate as an adjustment.

Der Verschluß 11 besteht aus drei Bügeln 12, 13 und 14, die jeweils durch Drehgelenke 15 miteinander sowie den beiden Enden der zwei Armbandhälften in bekannter Art und Weise verbunden sind.The closure 11 consists of three brackets 12, 13 and 14, each of which is connected in a known manner by means of rotary joints 15 to one another and to the two ends of the two bracelet halves.

Die anderenends angeordneten Glieder 2 und 2′ der Halterungen sind mit Durchstecköffnungen 20 und 20′ versehen für einen Federstift 18, der sich durch eine am Ende des Lederbandes 7 angeordnete Schlaufe 17 erstreckt und mit seinen freistehenden Endzapfen 19 an den Armen 31 einer Uhr 30 lösbar zu befestigen ist.The other ends arranged links 2 and 2 'of the brackets are provided with push-through openings 20 and 20' for a spring pin 18 which extends through a loop 17 arranged at the end of the leather band 7 and with its free-standing end pins 19 on the arms 31 of a clock 30 releasable to be fastened.

Für die Herstellung dieser Verbindung wird entsprechend Figur 4 das Lederband 7 soweit zwischen die beiden Halterungen 2 und 2′ in der Richtung des Pfeiles 22 eingeschoben, bis die Schlaufe 17 zwischen den Durchstecköffnungen 20 und 20′ liegt. Danach kann der Federstift 18 durch die Öbffnungen 20, die Schlaufe 17 und die Öbffnung 21 durchgesteckt werden, um anschließend mit seinen frei vorstehenden und unter dem Druck von einer nicht dargestellten Feder stehenden Zapfen 19 in Sacklöchern der Arme 31 der Uhr 30 verankert zu werden.To produce this connection, the leather strap 7 is inserted as far as between the two brackets 2 and 2 'in the direction of arrow 22 until the loop 17 lies between the through openings 20 and 20'. Then the spring pin 18 can be inserted through the openings 20, the loop 17 and the opening 21, in order to then be anchored in blind holes in the arms 31 of the watch 30 with its freely projecting pins 19 which are under pressure from a spring (not shown).

Das Band 7, das im Austausch angeordnet beispielsweise auch aus einem Goldgewebe bestehen kann oder einem anderen Material als Leder, wird auf seiner Innenseite abgestützt durch die Stege 6 und kann auf seiner Außenseite durch zusätzlich vorgesehene Träger 32 gehalten werden oder nur durch vorstehende Ansätze 28, die geeignet sind für die Aufnahme von Schmucksteinen 33 wie beispielsweise Edelsteinen oder Diamanten als weitere geschmackvolle Ausgestaltung des Armbandes, wobei nicht ausgeschlossen ist, daß derartige Edelsteine auch unmittelbar auf den Gliedern 2 bzw. 2′ angeordnet sein können.The band 7, which can be arranged in exchange, for example, also consist of a gold mesh or a material other than leather, is supported on its inside by the webs 6 and can be on it Be held on the outside by additionally provided carriers 32 or only by protruding projections 28, which are suitable for receiving gemstones 33 such as gemstones or diamonds as a further tasteful design of the bracelet, although it is not excluded that such gemstones are also directly on the links 2 or 2 'can be arranged.
