    Sourcing links and bracelets for Seiko vintage

    I recently acquired a 1979 Seiko 7025-8120P. It's in great condition and after I gave it some TLC I tend to wear it to work. Unfortunately the bracelet is one link too small for me, making the watch a bit tight. I found the number on the bracelet (appears to be the original) but I cannot find any reference to this bracelet online. Are there any sources for finding vintage bracelets or links (better option for me) online, besides randomly scouring eBay?

    The bracelet code reference on the back looks like 4065-2E.

    Thanks for looking!

    You may have difficulty finding a newlink/bracelet, and will certainly pay through the nose for most!
    However, there is an alternative, that I myself use on a Seiko and another watch, most simple, cheap and easily used method.

    I also have a Seiko 7F39-6000: not quite vintage and rarely mentioned online as far as I know, but all the mentions seem to say the bracelet tend to be far too short. I think the extra 16mm offered by the clasp extender would not be too helpful, besides it is not compatible with it anyway as the bracelet does not have a deployant clasp...

    Very nice! I have a 7009-8279 which is quite similar visually. I think a clasp extender is the way to go, an extra 3/4 inch should be enough if it's a little too tight. I don't see any reason why it won't work.

    This is a great idea on the clasp extender guys, thank you. I will take a look for something online as I only need about 5mm.

    Some feedback on this, for $10 I got a clasp extender off eBay. It works just fine, the piece is much more comfortable. Thanks for the help.
