A marketplace for chronographs, dive watches and other tool-type wristwatches and timepieces

Here's an affordable 20mm option for your Heuer Autavia 2446c or 7863, a Heuer Skipper or other 20mm Heuer chronograph with standard curved lugs. (I sell another straight-lug ends version for 1163V Heuer cases). Great band to have in your stable, easy to shift between 20mm lug watches. You can see it fits many different models equally as well.
