Looking for a band for this vintage Super Runner, I know it's a long shot, but the original band is so dang cool (see pics, first is of my watch, 2nd is of the band).

I believe the part # is DB06AB based on the 2nd picture and it is a stepped band (goes from 12mm to something closer to 19 or 20mm).

As I said, I know it is a longshot - most of these were probably worn hard by actual runners when they were made about 30 years ago. I am not worried about condition at all since this is only a fun beater...just thought it would be nice to marry with the right band if possible (you have to admit, that original band is 馃敟!

Thank you for looking!!

These are cool watches! Did you ever manage to find a band? I hope I didnt' get your hopes up when you saw a reply, but I can't help even if I'd dearly love to. There's an S640 on YJ right now, but also head only. I'm assuming bands aren't easy to come by.

No, nothing. It's a tough one because I believe it has 12mm lugs so the one bands that fit it are small kids or women's bands. I still have the watch - on a vintage tropic that I can barely buckle. I did see one on eBay, but I hate to chase (and pay for) a full watch when I only need the band. Probably will never happen, but sometimes this hobby can surprise you!

Pic below. Thanks for reaching out.

I hope that 3D printing will advance soon to get us to the stage of being able to print bands from a 3D-scanned original. I've heard that there are better and better flexible filaments, but the resolution to reproduce debossing with the same sharpness as the original isn't there yet, I think. Besides, I don't know how friendly to the skin the material is, and I know it has to be something that's not silicone rubber because that isn't printable. Oh well鈥
