I just bought this watch on the ''bay ($140 good/bad price? It''s just what I was looking for and I didn''t want it to slip away... but there''s a 7-day return policy, so...?) and I think I want to replace the bracelet/band part. Is there a good place to look for such things?

I think it looks lovely and I really like your inspiration idea. As for price or where to replace the band I have NO idea! Just wanted to say how pretty I thought it was.

Hi Musey
Cute Watch! Congrats!
I got two antique watches on ebay one with a band just like yours---I I have also been looking to replace that one,,but I haven't found one yet-- But ocationally ebay has antique bands that pop up. Last year i saw a diamond antique band go for $120.00 I was kicking myself bec i forgot to bid.
sometimes people sell watch parts... and they have the bands in the mix

Or someone might be be selli ng a broken watch--but the band is still good and has diamonds!
Good Luck!

Thanks Tacori!! I''m really excited about it, it''s my first piece of antique jewelry, and I''ve been wanting an antique diamond watch for quite awhile now. I''m really excited to re-create the inspiration pic for our wedding!


Blinky, I will watch ebay. The wedding is in a little over a month so hopefully something will pop up before then... if not, I can make do with the current band!

Hi Musey!

I really love the look of a pearl bracelet layered with an antique watch. I actually wear that combo quite a bit.

I bought an antique watch on ebay. I also lucked out and found a perfectly matching antique watchband. Here are some photos.

I'd keep looking on ebay--if you have the time.
You could also call http://www.wannabuyawatch.com

They might be able to point you in a direction if ebay doesn't pan out.

Good Luck!

I just love antique watches and yours is a beauty!


eta: found this too. http://www.antiquevintagewatches.com/diamond-watches.html

Thanks, coati! I''ve been watching ebay and haven''t seen anything yet. Hmph. I''m taking it in for restoration (it''s dirty inside the crystal and not running) this week so I''ll ask the watch guy, too.
