Yellow Bakelite Hinged Watch Bracelet 40s NOS

Here's an interesting item of new old stock: a hinged bakelite bracelet in a delicious yellow that's been ground and shaped to hold a watch. It's stepped down to hold the mechanism and a crystal. Even has the hole for the winding stem. We acquired a group of these from an old manufacturer. None had been fitted with the watch mechanisms. A creative person could probably find a watch to fit the opening or find a piece of clear plastic or watch crystal to cover the top and wear a loved ones photograph in the cut-out or fill the cavity with something interesting. 1-1/4" wide in front tapering to 1-1/8" wide at hinge. Hinge has oxidized on the inside from age but looks like brass and could probably be polished. I conducted both bakelite tests: mild smell under warm water & yellow with scrubbing bubbles. There's a lighter yellow oval on the inside behind the watch circle where an old inventory number tag was stuck on it and it didn't oxidize as much. There are 5 tiny short scratches right next to each other on the back edge near the hinge that are a little darker than the rest of the bracelet but not real noticeable. It is in very good condition otherwise.
