I'm thinking about picking up a Citizen Homer Railroad watch from the 1970's - does anyone know if they were issued with a specific style of band and what that band might have been? I've never seen one claiming to have an "original" one attached to it.

Thanks!

My best guess is that they came on a leather strap. I can't see any marks that end links might have made on my example. I managed to find an original Homer strap for mine:

Thanks for your reply - that's a great-looking watch. I've seen a few with black fabric bands that are showing enough age that I've wondered if those were original. I'm thinking about a black or brown Fluco "pigskin" band when I finally manage to pick one up.
