FS: Tropic type 19mm or 20mm dive bands $39.99 each



PICK EITHER SIZE FOR $39.99 or get 2 for $59.99 inc USA shipping

The most popular original vintage dive band style from the 1960s/70s. Classic perforated Tropic type bands with the basket-weave finish and your choice of either two sliding strap hold-down keepers (as shown) or one wider matching waffle finish keeper. The straps all are the unsigned type. They have their original stainless steel buckles. The spring bar holes are about 2mm. The straps take 16mm size buckles, if you want to add a signed buckle. These tropic type versions are much stiffer than the original Swiss Made type and the finishing is not as precise.


Popular band for 19mm Seikos and other divers. Your choice of two sliding keepers or one thick single sliding keeper. The strap measures 7 1/2 inches placed end to end, not including the buckle. Band is 4.1mm thick at the watch end.


Classic 20mm perforated Tropic type band with the basket-weave finish. A staple in anybody’s collection for your Submariner, Speedmaster or other 20mm watch. The straps measure 7 7/8 inches placed end to end, not counting the buckle. Your choice of two sliding keepers or one thick single sliding keeper. Strap is 4mm thick at the watch end.


$39.99 each or $59.99 for two


U.S. shipping for $6.99 for USPS First Class or international shipping for $19.99 via USPS First Class International.
