So one of my fav watches is my '66 Seikomatic Weekdater but the original bracelet had been altered to child size. Could I find a larger bracelet? Could I hell. So today I thought sod it. Grabbed some spare stainless out of my scraps metal bucket and started hammering, grinding and polishing. Now I have a bracelet that fits perfectly, not too tight, not too loose and Tony is a happy camper.
