    How to fix a vintage JB Champion

    Hey Cats,

    Thought I'd share my vintage JB Champion combo bracelet repair.

    First let's gather up what we'll need:


    Let's get that strap apart shall we, this model comes with the spring bar attachment between the expansion and stationary links:


    Find an appropriate donor band and take out the length you'll need and it's terminators:


    Size the terminator pieces to fit into the end links of the original, some modifying of the end tube diameter and width may need to be done to fit into the original ends:


    Insert appropriate spring bars and assemble:




    And there you have it, repaired JB Champion ready for several more decades of service:


    Thanks for the read folks!

    Peace,
    Preston
