Hi all Aqualand fans!

Thought I'd post a quick comparison of a 22mm replacement band I have found and like (so far).

The black dial watch shown below has an original Citizen replacement band on it which looks brand new.

I couldn't find a true Citizen band replacement for my C023 089405 Aqualand watch (yellow dial) - Citizen doesn't seem to stock them anymore, but found the one shown below on Amazon (Timewheel) for ~$15.

The main differences are:
The font size of the ND limits and the replacement has metric units.
The replacement has a shiny buckle vs. a matte buckle on the Citizen.
The buckle geometry is slightly different.
The vent hole pattern is different.
The Citizen band is ~2.82mm thick and the replacement is ~3.12mm thick.
The Citizen band will fit a slightly larger range of wrist sizes - it has more holes in each size direction for adjustment.

I was skeptical at $15, but am very happy with it as it is a very close match in material, texture, feel, comfort and looks.

Thanks. I'm looking for one at this moment. I'd like the measurements on the "ND limits" to be correct, so I'll keep looking. This is my series 1 Aqualand in gold with broken strap. This should be a 22mm strap...right??

Those are 24mm, let us know what you find and if you like it. I personally like the original Citizen bands the best. Good luck!
