THE 3 MOST RARE STYLES OF 19MM, 20MM AND 22MM SWISS TROPIC PERFORATED & TROPIC SPORT BANDS WITH HEUER BUCKLES
The most difficult sizes and styles of authentic Swiss signed Tropic dive bands to find for 20mm lug Heuer divers, Autavia, Carrera or Montreal, plus 22mm lug Heuer Monaco, Silverstone and Calculator watches. These are new old stock from the 1960s/70s. They come with Heuer steel reissue buckles.
Classic basket-weave perforated Tropic in 19mm or 20mm. These classic Swiss Tropics are difficult to source in the best sizes and styles. Perfect pairing with the Heuer buckle for any 19mm or 20mm lugs Heuer that you would like to fit with a wash-and-wear waterproof band.
19MM or 20MM PERFORATED SPECS: Length measures a generous 8 1/8 inches long (20.5cm), with the pieces placed end to end, not counting the buckle. Metric measurements of the two pieces are 120mm/85mm. The sizing holes for the buckle's tang run all the way down the middle, making the band easier to size. At the longest, with the strap pieces together and the tang in the last hole, the strap is 7 1/2 inches long (19cm) with the pieces closed together. You can size it all the way down to just 5 inches (13cm). Band is 5mm thick where it meets the watch and 2.6mm thick at the tail end. Fitted with a 16mm Heuer reissue steel buckle.
Classic Swiss Tropic but with the difficult to find 22mm straight ends. Bring the classic perforated Tropic look to one of your larger Heuers. Nice to have one waterproof band to switch from Monaco to Silverstone when you need it.
22MM PERFORATED SPECS: Generous length band is 8 1/4 inches long (21cm) ends placed end to end, not counting the buckle. With the pieces closed at the buckle, the band adjusts from a closed length of 6 inches (15cm) to 7 5/8 inches (19.3cm). Metric measurements of the two pieces are 83/116mm. The band thickness is 5.5mm where it meets the watch and 2.7mm thick at the tail end. Fitted with an 18mm Heuer reissue steel buckle.
Perfect classic Tropic Sport band for your Heuer chronos. Thick yet pliable rubber, very comfortable as an everyday strap.
