Flea Bay probably. The Far East has more spares (again flee bay). Might end up having to buy the complete watch, but they are discontinued and have a bit of a following so prices are punchy. Creation Watches http://www.creationwatches.com might have something. I assume you have tried Citizen?

Could the pins not be replaced?. It might be easier to find replacements (or have them made)?

Not tried Citizen directly yet - it does need a new battery and was always sent back to them.

And yes, I've noticed the prices creeping up. I bought this in 2001 and could probably sell it for more than what I paid including inflation - that rarely happens with any watches I buy.

I have no plans to sell it which usually means it will be sold tomorrow.

If it has the regular split pins found in the majority of bracelets then your local Timpsons or high street jeweller should be able to replace them, or if you fancy doing it yourself - https://www.cousinsuk.com/category/spli ... celet-pins

Hello Cheese. It is rather good to see you still here. I am trying to remember your post count at the time I drifted away.

Anything happened in my absence?
