    Help indetifying this watch

    I am trying to help a friend find a new strap for this watch. I can't find any identification other than BMW and Swiss made. It has a Miyota OS10 movement. The strap is proprietary to this watch and is made of (old and dry-rotted) rubber.
    Any help with a strap or information about the watch would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks,
    Dennis

    The current BMW watches available in the BMW online shop look different. I am afraid this is an old model. Good luck for your hunt.

    I had a Sector that stated L Swiss Made L and it had a Miyota movmnt inside. That is a disapointment. I think that those branded watches are mostly one offs, but it looks real Seiko'ish. Just a guess.

    On the end the band is pulled out of, they look like standard lugs. As long as you are willing to go to a thinner band (inside the lug only) and get rid of the metal piece, you should have no problem finding a band that will work. I would go to some jewlery stores, or places that sell rubber bands and match a few up (with the metal piece out) I think a lot of rubber bands have this step on them.
