Thanks again. I spent a fair amount of time looking for the right one but never found the part number. Again, you folks are a gift.

I would agree with Sea King "ES". That is the original band; the center expansion section could be replaced.

Thank you Ken, I didn't even know that was a possibility. Would it require a donor bracelet or is there a source for the centre part?

I've had success using a donor band, maybe I was lucky to find one that was a match or perhaps they are fairly universal; I'm not sure if repairing the broken part is a possibility, if someone knows how to do that it would be great to find out.
