20MM PERFORATED SWISS TROPIC BAND
You just don't see many of these anymore and very rarely in New Old Stock. I sell more Swiss Tropic vintage NOS dive bands than anyone else, and this size and style is one of the most difficult to source.
Authentic Swiss signed Tropic dive band from the 1960s/70s for Heuer diver, Autavia, Carrera or Montreal, as well as your Rolex Subs, Sea-Dwellers, GMT-Master. Straight ends 20mm Swiss signed Tropic fully perforated, waffle-finish bands in New Old Stock. This is the EXACT band the Rolex AD would have put on your vintage Sub or GMT-Master back in the 1960s/70s originally, if you asked for the watch on a rubber dive strap.
Length measures a generous 8 1/8 inches long, with the pieces placed end to end, not counting the buckle. The sizing holes for this style run all the way down the middle, so this band will fit many size wrists. The rubber is thick and supple. Band is 5mm thick where it meets the watch and 3mm thick at the tail end. Nice pliable, soft rubber. Takes a 16mm buckle. Comes with its original and unique Acier-signed Tropic Premium style buckle or I can fit a Heuer buckle.
The 20mm size is $275 for one or two for $525.
Free U.S. shipping for mentioning OTD/Chronotrader. International buyers pay $34.99 for Registered international shipping or $59.99 for EMS Express international.
