FS: Dealer's box 12 Swiss Tropics NOS in original store display

This last Swiss Tropics complete box assortment I have to offer here. Nice opportunity for a serious watch collector or a dealer with a vintage watch store. This is an original 1960s/70s Tropic dealer’s assortment of 12 of the best styles and colors of Tropic Swiss rubber waterproof straps, all New Old Stock (NOS).

The box includes these bands:

1) 18mm black perforated straight ends
2) 18mm black Tropic 2000
3) 18mm silver/grey Tropic Sport
4) 18mm blue Tropic Sport
5) 19mm black perforated curved ends
6) 19mm black Tropic 2000
7) 20mm black perforated straight ends
8) 20mm black Tropic Sport
9) 20mm black perforated straight ends
10) 22mm blue Tropic Sport
11) 22mm black perforated straight ends
12) 22mm black Tropic Sport

Some size and style substitutions from my Tropics stock are possible. All of these bands are pictured in detail at

This assortment comes in the original plastic counter-top display box, with its outer cardboard protective sleeve as well. At my individual list prices, the 12 bands would be well over $3,500.

Price $2,950

I might entertain watch trade proposals or cash+trade proposals for watches. Email me at with your ideas.

U.S shipping is $19.99 via Priority. International buyers contact me for shipping options and costs.

Thanks - Bill Mahoney (Squinky)
