Default Original watch band for the SEIKO 7A28 - 500A - just an Illusion?

Hello mates,

I was lucky to get a 7A28-500A.

Of course it is not a classic Seiko but I like the design.

The problem is the watch STRAP.

This is really useless.

Any ad that I saw - the band was replaced already or
the seller recommended to replace it and find another way out.

Is anyone around who heard of reproductions of the original ones.

The definately look sharp.

Thanks guys - for any help

Berni from Germany

This should be my 5th posting - I can upload pics now?
I will this immediately

Hi Berni and welcome to the SCWF.

The watch band on the -500A gets really hard and inflexible with age - and breaks in two if you try to use it.

Because there are so few of the -500X around, I doubt anyone does a reproduction, sadly.
