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"). Photos must be of the actual item for sale in its present condition. No counterfeit or replica products. No post for the same item may be repeated within 7 days, except to lower the asking price.

WTT: Strap your best collection pieces and pay with a watch trade

We all collect multiples of the same watches and are constantly ushering runts of the litter out the door. Why not trade away one of your duplicates or rarely worn watches for a chance to put original vintage bands and bracelets on many of your favorite watches at once without laying out any cash? Save it for your next watch purchase instead. Maybe you have too many projects? I might even consider a watch you have in line for restoration or repair that you just haven't gotten to yet.

Look over your collection and find a watch or watches that will pay the way, then look through the list of choices from a large vintage selection of New Old Stock bracelets and rally straps at

Gems like:

- Beads of Rice bands in 17.3mm, 18mm, 19mm or 20mm - plus special BoR bands for straight-lug Autavias and Jenny Caribbeans
- original Heuer Corfam rally bands in blue or black 22mm
- flared NSA 22mm ends band for Heuer Silverstone NOS in box, plus 30 other NSA bracelet styles
- leather vintage 1960s/70s rally bands in black, grey, brown, blue, tan, burgundy or green in 18mm to 22mm
- Heuer Silverstone fume or bordeaux rally bands with Heuer buckles
- Tropic Swiss vintage rubber perforated or big holes dive bands in many sizes and colors, including 20mm for Rolex and 22mm for Breitlings and big Heuers
- Heuer steel buckles in 16mm and 18mm opening sizes
- also many other brands of American and Swiss Made bands and bracelets for other vintage chronograph and dive watch brands
