Links to online auctions and other sites: Links to online auctions, dealer sites or other listings of items are permitted, but you should be careful to ensure that such listings will comply with our other ChronoTrader Policies. In addition, we request that sellers linking to online auctions or listings offer some benefit or accomodation to ChronoTrader readers (for example, some discount or an undertaking to end an auction early, to keep a watch "in the family").

FS: Big holes rally bands matching or contrast stitched $39.99

These are the type of rally bands made famous by the Heuer, Breitling and Omega chronograph racing styles. They come in solid colors, with smooth or calf grain leather, and your choice of matching or contrasting stitching. If you have questions or would like to see more pictures or styles, go to and please note some styles and colors are already sold out.

SPECS: These straps are a perfect combination of style and comfort because of big holes and soft calfskin lining. The bands are fully stitched and have medium padding. The thickness goes from 4.2mm at the tail to 4.5mm where the band meets the watch. Standard length strap of 7 1/2 inches long (19cm), not including the stainless steel buckle. Metric measurement is 115/75mm. The buckle end of the strap is -2mm from the watch end size, if you want to fit a signed buckle.

Select from the remaining styles in black calf grain, black smooth, tan calf grain, brown smooth or brown calf grain. UPDATE style #1 is sold out in 20mm and styles #2, #5 and #6 are sold out in all sizes. Style #7 is also available with white stitching. Don't miss out on these bands at this low price before the color and size you want sells out!
