Bracelet for 7a28-7100

Post by bo_bar »

I just bought a 7a28-7100 (call it Pepsi Navy Blue Panda or whatever you want) on Japanese website. Does anyone have the item number for the original bracelet? It's coming with a short, but pretty good copy aftermarket bracelet. Uncle Seiko doesn't make one for the 7a28-7100. I have an original (non JDM) B1075 bracelet lying around that should fit, but since it's not original to this watch, I'd rather not waste it. Instead, I'd rather drive myself crazy trying to find the ridiculously expensive unattainable rainbow unicorn original JDM speedtimer bracelet. Then after I don't find it, get a decent aftermarket. Any suggestions for where to find a decent aftermarket bracelet for the 7a28-7100?

[Go easy on me, I'm a newbie here and this is my first post]

TIA

According to their Oceania database, it's Seiko p/n NA19A. Same bracelet is used on the yellow-dialed JDM 7A28-710A.
Can't say I've ever seen one offered for sale. Good Luck with your search !

I guess eBay is as good a place as any, though you'll likely struggle to find a good match. :|

Yes, I saw that yesterday, when I ran a quick search on eBay myself: https://www.ebay.com/itm/355696540601
Listed by greedy profiteering US re-seller Ryan Marucheau rtm127. I had to chuckle where he wrote in the description:
It will come with the installation plate as well, so it will be ready to install once it arrives.
That plate is of course part of the link. :roll: He has his own dedicated thread in the eBay section.
