Title: Zodiac stretch band question
Post by: Waynelacasse on June 16, 2014, 02:24:45 PM
Hello,
I purchased a zodiac stretch band for my Sea Wolf and the end pieces are 19mm and are too big for the Sea Wolf.  Is there another Zodiac watch that this will fit?
Thanks!

Probably a chronograph. You (or your watchmaker) and grind them down to 17.5 for the SW though.

Thanks Butch. Yes I've ground down end pieces before, but I didn't want to in case this band was to a more valuable Zodiac than a Sea Wolf. In which case, I would try to acquire the Zodiac that fit the band. Kind of backwards, but I've done that on a bunch of Hamiltons because finding the correct band for a vintage watch is often harder than finding the watch.
I couldn't find any pictures of this style band on any Zodiacs??
If anyone out there knows what this 19mm watch  this goes to definitively, please let me know.
I also have to fix the springs. Anyone know of a source for springs that will fit this band?
Thanks!!

May be ends from another band?
