Agreed and what a great looking watch when its combined with its original bamboo band. The moment whilst a replacement is certainly correct for this model and doesn't effect the ID.

Also note the Golden Bamboo Kreisler Expansion Band is the jumbo size that marries to the Tuxedo Case perfectly. Most I have seen have the short length at the lugs Bamboo Bands. Congrats.. very, very nice indeed!
