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.

L-0 AA-R

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!
