Does anyone know a source for Heuer 510 Bands?

Hi Everyone, hope someone might be able to help. I have at long last managed to find a 510.503, Hurray!!
However, fate has been cruel. O.K. so I have found one, but do you think that I can wear it?
-No Way!!
Original flat link steel band is 2-3 links too short for my wrist, and knocked about.
I am in the process of having a full restoration done(General condition not great), and NOS parts have been found, all but the steel strap.
I know of another 503 owner who has fitted a Sinn strap, after getting it bead blasted to match the case, does anyone know of an alternative? Or a stock of NOS straps?
I am even considering a used "Jubilee" style strap (Or flat link) to have blasted, if only I could find one!
Your comments/ recommendations would be appreciated!
Thanks again to you all for a constant source of interest,
Best Wishes,
