FS: 20mm perforated Swiss Tropic for Sub, GMT, Heuer

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: Straight ends 20mm Swiss signed Tropic fully perforated, waffle-finish band 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. Also available here with a steel Heuer reissue buckle installed.

Authentic Swiss signed Tropic dive band from the 1960s/70s also ideal for a Heuer diver, Autavia, Carrera or Montreal, as well as your Rolex Subs, Sea-Dwellers, GMT-Master or an Omega Speedmaster. Takes the common 16mm inner opening buckle size, if you want to add a signed buckle or I can sell you a Heuer buckle and install it.

Length of this band measures a generous 8 1/8 inches long, with the pieces placed end to end, not counting the Acier original premium type 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, super comfortable band to wear and fully washable.
