Hi guys,.

Recently I scored a very nice bulova super Seville! The only problem is that it hasn't got enough links to fit my wrist.

If you have two spare left please send me a pm. I will be glad to take them from you. I'm looking for the silver ones.

Kind regards

Hi Jringo!

thanks in advance!

Ebay. Cut and past this into the serach bar:


10mm 12mm 14mm 16mm 18mm 20mm & 22mm Watch Band Bracelet Clasp Spring Extender


Will probably give you right at 2-3 links worth of length (provided your clasp is the type that will take this)

found it! Thanks for the tip.

Will see if this works because it has sort of a 'crownclasp'. So im not sure if you will see anything

Thinking about an AM bracelet for in the meantime. Figured out that if I buy one with loose endlinks, i could use the original endlinks, and the AM bracelet... Not ideal, but better than nothing. It runs on leather know

I posted this tragic tale about a decade ago but remembering still rankles.
Back in the '90's the main Australian Seiko dealership had 4 watchmakers working fulltime and when re-sizing a band threw the unwanted links into a 44 gallon drum in the corner of the workshop.
In 1992 or thereabouts the drum was full so they sold it as scrap metal for about $50 and it was melted in the furnace.
Would be worth a fortune today!!!
