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

SEIKO MOD COMPATIBILITY:

This dive watch is partially compatible with Seiko Mods. For detail please check out our blog post here:
