FS: Flared links JB Champion USA band for big 1970s dive watch

Finding good steel bands to fit the large size of your vintage Zodiac Super SeaWolf or Zodiac chronograph from the 1970s isn't easy. We're offering New Old Stock JB Champion USA bracelets here in the same style that appeared on several of the most collectible Zodiac models. Great for a Zodiac Super Seawolf Valjoux 72 chronograph or coffin case orange Zodiac Sea Wolf. This is the original pattern JB Champion USA steel vintage bracelet for those models, just without the Zodiac logo on the clasp (you can add a Zodiac clasp later if you find one). This version has the special wider, gradual flared links that make the transition to the large SSW just perfect. Band has 19mm straight ends. Also a compatible 19mm lugs bracelet other divers watches with different brand names such Gruen with the same case as the Super Sea Wolf. Many skinny bracelets simply don't work with your large vintage divers watch. This JB Champion USA bracelet has links that gradually flare out to 21.3mm wide just before the end pieces to transition to the large head of the Zodiac Super Sea Wolf just perfectly. This bracelet is New Old Stock from the 1970s with some light scratches on the clasp from storage. Made of stainless steel with a satin matte finish. Generous length band is 6 1/2 inches long (16.3cm) and you can adjust the length in the clasp to make it shorter and it's very easy to remove any link. We sell extra original links to lengthen this bracelet.

Price is $295.

We also have a used Zodiac clasp version of the same band for sale for $450. Email for pictures and details.

SHIPPING: U.S. shipping with tracking is $6.99. International buyers pay $59.99 for Priority international shipping or $85 for Express delivery (arrives in 4-5 days).
