Stainless steel watch band – lite vs regular
Our stainless steel watch bracelet comes in two variants: the lite version and the regular version. There are mainly two differences:
1: Our regular version of the stainless steel band is constructed from solid links while the lite version is made from hollow links.
2: Our regular version of the stainless steel band features screw-in links for easy adjustment, while the lite version will require a separate tool (included in the kit) for length adjustment
