FS: Blue Swiss Tropic perforated for Heuer 1533 or blue Subs

Very uncommon color Swiss Tropic perforated 20mm band in that blue that is distinct from the 1960s/70s. Will be a nice complement to your Heuer Carrera 1533 or your Heuer Siffert. Looks great on the Tudor Sub shown or would complement a GMT bezel with blue in it. Difficult color to find in the perforated style Tropic and I have just a few to offer.

Generous length band measuring 8 inches (20.3cm) placed end to end, not counting the buckle. Metric measurements of the 2 individual pieces are 120/83mm. With the tang holes all the way down the center of the band, it will fit many size wrists. Single sliding strap hold-down keeper. Strap is 5.4mm thick at the watch end; 3.2mm thick in the body; and 2.8mm thick at the tail end. Has the distinctive Tropic premium buckle in stainless steel signed Acier on back. Signed Tropic Swiss Made Mod. Dep. Bears stock number 22522.

Buckle opening is 16mm, so it will accept your Heuer vintage buckle or I can install a Heuer steel reissue buckle.

PRICE: $295 or $395 with a Heuer buckle

SHIPPING: U.S. shipping with tracking for $6.99 or international shipment via EMS Express for $65 or FedEx for $115.


I have many other Swiss Tropic and Heuer-related items for sale at my site
